Valent BioSciences Corporation (VBC) announced it has reached an agreement with the BioAg Alliance to distribute certain Actinovate Biological Fungicide products. Through the agreement, Actinovate AG brand sales for the United States will be handled through Valent U.S.A. Corporation and for Canada by Valent Canada, Inc.
Actinovate AG is a broad-spectrum biofungicide product for management of common foliar and soilborne diseases found on outdoor crops and in greenhouses, nurseries, and turf, according to the company. Actinovate AG is OMRI-approved with the lowest possible re-entry interval and zero day preharvest interval, Valent said.
The deal comes on the heels of VBC’s recent acquisition of Mycorrhizal Applications and its 2012 acquisition of Pace International.
The distribution agreement includes outdoor crops, greenhouse, nursery and turf uses of the Actinovate AG brands – Actinovate AG, Actinovate L&G, Actinovate SP and Actino-Iron. Mycorrhizal Applications will also distribute Actino Iron as an ingredient into the specialty potting soil market. Seed treatment uses will be retained by the BioAg Alliance.
