"We are very excited to be launching GRANDEVO® bioinsecticide in Canada. The unique fit of the product in the market, coupled with further label development work fits exactly our mandate”, says Ray Chyc, president of Engage. “We are also excited to expand on our relationship with Marrone and value their trust in us to manage the sales, marketing, and further development of GRANDEVO in Canada”.
GRANDEVO® is an advanced bioinsecticide that offers complex modes of action to control a broad spectrum of chewing and sucking insects and mites. Combining high performance with operational flexibility and long-lasting control, GRANDEVO strengthens integrated pest management programs (IPM) and resistance management (IRM) programs for a wide range of crops.
GRANDEVO is naturally derived from a newly discovered bacterium, commonly known as Achromacil™, which produces a number of compounds that contribute to the mode of action, resulting in a potent biopesticide that is highly active against insects and mites. Control of pests is achieved by unique combinations of repellency, oral toxicity, reduced egg hatch, and reduced fecundity (ability of pest to reproduce).
GRANDEVO has also been shown to maintain populations of most beneficials and introduced biological controls.
GRANDEVO is currently submitted for registration with the PMRA. In the USA, GRANDEVO is certified for use in organic production.
