Vive wins Canadian fungicide registration

Vive Crop Protection Inc. has received its first Canadian product registration with the introduction of AZteroid FC3.3 fungicide.

Powered by Vive’s patented Allosperse delivery technology, AZteroid FC3.3 fungicide delivers long- lasting disease control and best-in-class compatibility, enabling growers to use AZteroid FC3.3 in-furrow with their liquid fertilizers, micronutrients and other crop inputs without clogged nozzles, lines, or filters, according to a news release.

Labeled for in-furrow use on potatoes, AZteroid FC3.3 protects against black scurf, silver scurf and rhizoctonia diseases.

“AZteroid FC3.3 fungicide gives Canadian potato growers a new tool to combat soilborne diseases with the convenience of best-in-class fertilizer compatibility,” says Bihlmeyer, Vive’s vice president of global sales, said in the release. “After success in the U.S. for years, we are thrilled to bring AZteroid FC3.3 to the Canadian ag market.”

“Bringing cutting edge innovation to the pesticide industry is groundbreaking work and this first Canadian registration has been several years in the making,” Darren Anderson, Vive’s co-founder and CEO, said in the release. “At Vive, we’ve been delivering precision chemistry solutions to the U.S. market since 2016.”

Vive’s trademarked Precision Chemistry system simplifies crop production and delivers results to growers, according to the release. Powered by Vive’s patented Allosperse delivery technology, Vive works to optimize conventional and biological crop inputs for improved product performance from the jug to the field, according to the release.
