Belchim Crop Protection, in its capacity as a current shareholder, has acquired a controlling majority stake of 60 percent in Engage Agro. The transaction will allow Belchim to work with growers across Canada and suppliers around the globe to bring innovative, value-added products to the Canadian market.
