Marrone Bio Innovations, a Davis-based provider of bio-based pest management and plant health products, has announced that its Regalia Maxx biofungicide has been approved for use in El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras.

These countries join Panama and Mexico in approving the product to control a wide variety of bacterial and fungal diseases across an array of crops.

The new product registrations “are an integral part of our global expansion plan for MBI products,” said Hector Absi, senior vice president of commercial operations. “We have seen strong reception for Regalia Maxx in Mexico and Panama through our partner FMC. We believe the product will fill a real need for growers in these newly registered countries as well.

FMC is the exclusive Latin America distributor for Regalia Maxx, the company said.

“Latin America growers export a large portion of their production, and Regalia Maxx, because of its exemption from maximum residue level tolerances, can help them manage the growing concerns about pesticide residues among importing countries,” Absi added.

In addition to the new product registrations, Regalia Maxx recently was granted organic certification in Canada from the Organic Materials Review Institute. Absi said this is another important step in MBI’s global expansion.

“The OMRI certification is critical for gaining sales in the rapidly expanding Canadian organic fruit and vegetable market,” he said. “Canada’s $3.5 billion organic market is the fourth in the world, and is a very important market for us.

“Organic growers there can now use Regalia Maxx with complete confidence that it will help them meet consumer demand for high-quality organic food in this fast growing category.”
