Marrone, Syngenta sign agreement for Regalia

By
March 25, 2011 |

Davis-based Marrone Bio Innovations Inc., which creates natural products for pest management, announces the signing of a major distribution agreement with Syngenta Crop Protection AG.

Syngenta will exclusively distribute MBI’s award-winning biofungicide Regalia in specialty crop markets throughout Europe, Africa and the Middle East.

Regalia will complement Syngenta’s comprehensive fungicide portfolio, providing growers with an innovative new tool for disease resistance management with a product that leaves no residues in the harvested produce, a news release said.

“We are delighted to sign this agreement with Syngenta Crop Protection. It recognizes the value Regalia brings to both its portfolio and its customers,” said Pam Marrone, founder and CEO of Marrone Bio Innovations, in a news release. “Partnerships like this are key for MBI as we rapidly expand into global markets.”

MBI said growers will benefit from Regalia’s unique mode of action, which boosts plants’ natural immune defenses to control fungal and bacterial diseases. MBI is achieving rapid adoption of Regalia in specialty crop markets in the United States. For example, it is used for bacterial disease control in tomatoes, peppers, citrus and walnuts, and mildew control in leafy greens, cucurbits, berries and vines.

Regalia has a minimal re-entry interval and a zero-day pre-harvest interval, giving growers operational flexibility and a residue-free harvest, MBI reported. This integrated pest management tool will be submitted for the European Union’s Annex 1 inclusion this spring.

MBI discovers, develops and markets effective and environmentally responsible natural products that fill unmet needs for weed, plant disease and pest management. For more information about MBI, go to www.marronebio.com.
