MGK Purchases Debug Brand

MGK, a subsidiary of Sumitomo Chemical Co., has purchased the DeBug brand of neem products from Agro Logistic Systems Inc.

The DeBug products are the latest addition to MGK’s current botanical portfolio, which includes its legacy brands, Pyganic and EverGreen.

“This acquisition supports MGK’s mission to make life healthier by offering responsible products that protect people and their environments from the impact of insects,” states MGK President Steve Gullickson.

The DeBug range of products provide growers with a portfolio of solutions for insect control across a broad base of pests and crops.

Offering quadruple action as an insecticide, fungicide, miticide and nematicide, DeBug can be used independently or in tandem with pyrethrum and other natural or synthetic pesticides.

MGK’s plan is to incorporate neem into its product development process and deliver innovative solutions into multiple markets for decades to come.  “We are excited to add neem to our portfolio of botanical active ingredients. MGK now has a strong development and commercial position in three, time-tested and highly effective EPA-registered botanical active ingredients.” said Don Sundquist, MGK Director of Business Development.
