Certis Biologicals, the manufacturer of BotaniGard and Mycotrol mycoinsecticides, will begin sales of its products to established nursery and greenhouse pesticide distributors on Oct. 1, 2022. The company had distributed the two products through a third party under an agreement that ends in September. Certis Biologicals will begin selling the bioinsecticide products directly through their established distribution channel partners.
“BotaniGard and Mycotrol are proven and highly effective products powered by Beauveria bassiana strain GHA. We are grateful for the opportunity to supply these products to the customers who have depended upon them to protect plants in their greenhouses, nurseries and gardens for years,” said Amy O’Shea, president and CEO. “We will be using the weight of our established distribution channel partners and experienced technical staff to support the transition of these products back into our portfolio.”
Beginning Oct. 1, customers will be able to purchase BOTANIGARD 22WP, BOTANIGARD ES, BOTANIGARD MAXX, MYCOTROL WPO and MYCOTROL ESO from Certis Biologicals through leading retailers and distributors. BotaniGard and Mycotrol products are manufactured by Certis Biologicals in their US-based manufacturing facilities using the GHA strain of Beauveria bassiana. They provide control against all life cycle stages of aphids, thrips, weevils, whiteflies and many other insects that threaten the health and yields of crops.
“Certis Biologicals has long been the leader in providing solutions for all growers, whether they are large-scale commercial producers who grow in-ground or in greenhouses or gardeners in their own backyards,” says Jim Black, business director. “Our successful partnership with BioWorks will continue as we work together to successfully transition customers of BotaniGard and Mycotrol to Certis Biologicals.”
Certis Biologicals and BioWorks are collaborating to ensure that all customers are served during this summer and into early fall. Customers who are interested in learning more about Certis Biologicals can visit www.certisbio.com or www.certisbio.com/greenhouse.
