“We surveyed our customers and distribution partners about website resources. What we found was that these other sites tend to be product-focused in their approach,” said Bill Lewis, Summit Agro CEO. “We wanted our website to be an easily searchable tool that allows users to quickly and simply get answers for the control of the specific pests threatening their particular crops. This mobile-friendly website fits with Summit Agro’s overall strategy of bringing the market a unique mix of conventional and biological offerings.”
In order to achieve this, a robust database drives the site’s search function. It catalogs multiple diseases, insects and weeds for over 600 crops. This makes the Summit Agro website among the most comprehensive, easy-to-use sites in the industry.
In addition to the launch of the new website, Summit Agro has brought to market two new products – Verdepryn 100SL insecticide and Timorex Act fungicide.
Verdepryn insecticide allows growers to maximize both yields and crop quality by providing exceptional broad-spectrum insect control in pome fruit, stone fruit, grapes, berries, tree nuts and citrus. “We have been pleased with the results seen with Harvanta insecticide in vegetable crops. Now we can bring that same successful active ingredient – Cyclapryn – to additional crops in the form of Verdepryn,” said Mary DeMers, Summit Agro marketing manager for insecticides and fungicides. “Verdeprynis a Group 28 insecticide with a control spectrum that is competitive with, or better than, most currently available diamide insecticides and does so with much less active ingredient.”
A purely organic formulation, Timorex Act is a botanical broad-spectrum fungicide with preventative and curative activity based on an extract of the tree tea plant. “An OMRI-listed product, Timorex ACT is poised to meet the rigorous standards for sustainable agriculture,” said Fred Yates, Summit Agro marketing manager for biologicals.
