AMVAC<sup>®</sup>, 3Bar Biologics<sup>®</sup> partner on SIMPAS<sup>®</sup>-compatible packaging for liquid microbial SIMPAS-applied solutions™

AMVAC has partnered with 3Bar Biologics to develop disposable packaging for liquid microbial SIMPAS-applied Solutions™ (SaS™). This innovative package will be plug-and-play compatible with the SIMPAS agricultural application system, enabling simultaneous application of SaS products from synthetic crop inputs in returnable/refillable SmartCartridge® containers alongside biological inputs in disposable packaging on the same crop row. The new package will be fully trackable with Smart Tag™ technology and compatible with Ultimus®, AMVAC’s container/supply-chain traceability tool.

AMVAC’s SaS portfolio continues to expand with microbial products such as iNvigorate®, Envita® through a collaboration with Azotic North America, and others to be announced. This new package will enable delivery of fresh, Ready-to-Use (RTU), living-organism formulations of these new products to be applied directly to the seed furrow, without contamination or loss of microbes from mixing with non-sterile water or non-compatible chemistry. This will accelerate the growth of SaS biologicals while speeding farmer adoption of SIMPAS technology.

 “Sterility requirements for microbials aren’t compatible with refilling product cartridges as we do with synthetic-based SaS,” said Rick Rice, Director, Application Technology, AMVAC. “AMVAC approached 3Bar to develop a disposable SaS package that allows farmers to dispose of unused microbial product and the container itself in accordance with landfill regulations. 3Bar has deep expertise in biologicals, packaging, and delivery, so we’re confident they’ll help us deliver a commercially viable solution.”

Said Bruce Caldwell, Founder & CEO, 3Bar Biologics: “The microbial input industry is growing and AMVAC is a pioneer in delivery technology for living organisms. As the SIMPAS portfolio grows in both crop protection chemicals and now biologicals, AMVAC is positioned to be a leader in precision agriculture inputs. We are thrilled to bring our company’s expertise to this exciting project.”

3Bar and AMVAC are targeting the new package to be launched in time for the 2023 planting season in the U.S.
