Marrone Bio Innovations launches biological crop protection portfolio 6th June 2018
Marrone Bio Innovations has announced the launch of REGALIA CG, GRANDEVO CG and VENERATE CG, a portfolio of products designed to control highly destructive pests and diseases, including powdery mildew, mites, thrips and aphids, during Cannabis production and home gardening.
The three products are multi-state-approved and extremely effective biological crop protection solutions for clean green cultivation, with the ability to generate increased yield and improved quality by reducing stresses from plant disease and insect and mite pests to the plant. When incorporated into an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program, these products can serve as the fundamental difference for successful growers.
“GRANDEVO and VENERATE are a game changer when it comes to IPM programs,” said Kyle Stamback, Director of Cultivation at NorthWestGrown i502 and owner of Lean Cultivation. “I have eliminated all other preventive sprays and only use Grandevo and Venerate. These products have kept my gardens clean and my beneficial bugs happy. I’ve seen great results against all types of malice bugs, from leaf eaters to root aphids.”
REGALIA CG, GRANDEVO CG and VENERATE CG also help grow operations care for their employees and the environment. They are harvest flexible and worker-friendly with a four-hour re-entry interval, minimal personal protective equipment requirements and the ability to be used right before harvest without concern for synthetic chemical residues.
“Outreach to hundreds of growers and industry leaders helped MBI create a solution that addresses needs in information sharing, education and training, ultimately producing products they can use with confidence backed by science,” said Lisa Malabad, Cannabis Segment Lead at Marrone Bio Innovations. “We continue to work with state regulatory agencies to ensure each of our products is aligned with all requirements and guidelines, giving growers peace of mind.”
