May 2, 2013 – Visalia, CA – Sym-Agro Inc has entered into an exclusive distribution agreement with Seipasa for its Cinnerate bio pesticide product in the U.S.  Peter Bierma, President of Sym-Agro sees a great fit for Cinnerate which is registered for use on most agricultural crops, in their product portfolio.

“Effective and biologically-based products are very attractive to fruit and vegetable growers, because they are always looking for new solutions that work and address their sensitivity to conventional pesticide usage. With Cinnerate we can offer these customers a 25B Exempt-, OMRI-certified,  knockdown fungicide for Powdery Mildew as well as good mite contril insecticide. Sym-Agro is also working with Seipasa to bring additional zero residue pesticide products in the new future, we feel our company is leading the way in offering, biologically-based solutions that offer many benefits beyond just excellent performance.”

Cinnerate, consists of an innovative formulation that enables to obtain high efficacies even at low concentrations. It has a high content in essential oils, having characterized different phenolic and monoterpenic compounds such as cinnamic aldehyde and eugenol as main components. It shows an eradicative effect against many fungal pathogens such as powdery mildews, rusts and others. Cinnerate disrupts the functioning of cell membranes as well as inhibits the growth, attachment and penetration of the pathogenic spores to the plant tissue.

We feel Cinnerate offers a new tool for both organic and conventional growers to control of powdery mildew, with a key advantage of not having a restriction on sulfur use before or after the products use. With many years of commercial use in Europe, Africa and middle east we are conifident in the products safety and performance on a full spectrum of crops.

Regarding the agreement with Sym-Agro Inc, Vicente of Seipasa comments, “Sym-Agro has shown great enthusiasm and knowledge in promoting the products and we are both pleased at the expansion of our collaboration to this new product.”

Sym-Agro, Inc. Announces Agreement with Cutting Edge Formulations, Inc. to Distribute Avenger Herbicide Products in Western US

May 2, 2013 – Visalia, CA -Sym-Agro Inc has entered into an exclusive distribution agreement with Seipasa for its Amicos Sec bio pesticide product in the U.S. Peter Bierma, President of • Sym-Agro sees a great fit for Amicos Sec which is registered for p use on most agricultural crops,

February 21, 2013 – Visalia, CA – Sym-Agro, a leading provider of unique products to the agriculture and horticulture markets, announces that it has formed a distribution agreement with Cutting Edge Formulations, Inc. to distribute their line of organic herbicides in the Western United States. AvengerAG® Burndown Herbicide and Avenger® Weed Killer are non-selective, post-emergent, fast acting organic herbicides that safely kill weeds, grasses and broadleaves. Going forward, Sym-Agro will be a primary distributor of Avenger® products and provide support to other distributors in this region.

Peter Bierma, President of Sym-Agro, Inc., commented “We are very pleased to add the Avenger® line of organic herbicides to our growing portfolio. There is an increased need for effective weed control in organic production and after studying the Avenger® product, we feel it is the best option on market in terms of effective weed control and handler safety.”

Joe Jankauskas, President and CEO of Cutting Edge Formulations, Inc. commented: “The active ingredient in AvengerAG® and Avenger® Weed Killer is an emulsified d-limonene (citrus oil), which acts as a natural degreaser. It strips away the waxy surface of weeds, for a quick non-selective desiccation without the need for direct sunlight or warm temperatures – something other natural products can’t do. This opens up the opportunity for early season weed control, when weeds are smaller and more susceptible to herbicide treatments and less apt to recover. Avenger® is fast acting; typically weeds will show darkening of the foliage within hour. On hot days, weeds can burn down in less than a day.

Avenger® Weed Killer has been field-tested in both university and independent studies. It was found to be as effective, but faster acting, when tested against the leading synthetic herbicide glysophate. When tested against ‘natural’ herbicides, Avenger® Weed Killer is more effective and faster acting. Avenger® Weed Killer has been in the retail market since March of 2006 and along with AvengerAG® Burndown Herbicide, are non-toxic and can be used around pets and wildlife.
