Certis Biologicals Opens Distribution Channels
Growers can now purchase garden, greenhouse and nursery products through Certis Biologicals’ distribution channels. The manufacturer of BotaniGard and Mycotrol mycoinsecticides has fully completed its transition of these products back into its portfolio of biopesticides and has begun managing all distribution of these products through its established network. Effective immediately, growers in the U.S. and Canada can source the mycoinsecticides from Certis Biologicals through retailers and distributors.
Products included are BotaniGard 22WP, BotaniGard ES, BotaniGard MAXX, Mycotrol WPO and Mycotrol ESO. These products, powered by the GHA strain of Beauveria bassiana, provide effective control against all life cycle stages of aphids, thrips, weevils, whiteflies, and many other insects that threaten the health and yields of crops.
“We are proud to manufacture these products in our U.S. based manufacturing facilities and now we are delighted to partner more closely with growers to ensure their successful use on a variety of crops and growing conditions,” said Jim Black, business director. “During the transition, Certis has invested heavily in our internal sales and technical team to fully support these products and the growers who rely upon them.”
Led by Black, the Certis Biologicals garden, greenhouse and nursery team includes Lee Schaber and Gabe Diaz-Saavedra as key account managers. New additions include Jeremy Wagnitz as technical manager and Matt Brecht as regional sales manager.
