An exclusive new Canadian distribution agreement between bio-ferm and Nufarm Agriculture Inc. adds two biological fungicides to Nufarm’s horticultural line of crop protection solutions. Blossom Protect and Botector are now available from Nufarm in Canada, as part of the company’s lineup of herbicides, fungicides and insecticides for Canadian horticultural growers.
“Biological fungicides make up an important and growing part of our fungicide portfolio,” says Maria Dombrowsky, horticultural specialist at Nufarm Agriculture Inc. “Blossom Protect and Botector are great complements to our existing products, and will allow Nufarm to continue to support growers and their IPM programs.”
Blossom Protect is a biological fungicide that provides effective protection for pome fruit against fire blight (Erwinia amylovora) – a disease that has been a growing problem in pome fruit nationwide. Botector is a biological fungicide used to protect grapes from botrytis (Botrytis cinerea) – a pathogen that can cause significant yield and grape quality losses. Both Blossom Protect and Botector make great additions to a grower’s Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program.
“bio-ferm products contain a unique mode of action that hinders the development of resistance,” says Werner Fischer, managing director with bio-ferm. “Our products are suitable for conventional and organic production, and bring the additional benefit of being safe for humans, animals and beneficials. They are certified through Ecocert Canada.”
Blossom Protect and Botector are available exclusively through Nufarm Agriculture Inc., their distributors and retailer partners across Canada.
