Syngenta/Marrone sign distribution agreement
Syngenta has signed an agreement with US biopesticide company, Marrone Bio Innovations (Davis, California) for exclusive distribution rights in Europe, Africa and the Middle East for Marrone’s biofungicide, Regalia. Syngenta will market it under its own trademarks and will include it in its European crop programmes. It could be used in alternation with the company’s synthetic fungicides for mildew control, or mixed with other fungicides to enhance their activity. The product leaves no residues in the harvested produce, the companies say.
