Vestaron Corporation (Vestaron), The Peptide Company, has named Plant Products, based in Leamington, Ontario, the exclusive distributor for its greenhouse products in Canada. It will start with Spear-T bioipesticide followed by several launches in the next few years.
Spear-T is a novel technology and a first of its kind in the control of important insects that affect the Canadian greenhouse market. Spear-T’s flexibility, new mode of action (IRAC Group 32) and integration into an IPM program are all key components of the new peptide-based bioinsecticide.
“Plant Products is excited to start our journey with Vestaron to bring Spear-T and other novel peptide-based brands to the Canadian greenhouse market,” explains Kelly Devaere, product and marketing manager of Plant Products. This partnership will bring a brand-new mode of action to the market and help solve difficult-to-control pests in the greenhouse ornamental and vegetable markets coast to coast.”
Spear-T has been submitted to the Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) for registration in Canada.
