New Bioinsecticide Available for Growers as Marrone Bio Innovations and Nufarm Australia Sign Commercial Agreement


In California, the new bio based product GRANDEVO Bioinsecticide can help crop growers fight nasty pests like mealybugs, thrips, and whiteflies in a natural way. The non-living bacteria ingredient in the bioinsecticide is created during the course of manufacturing using a fermentation process. Even better, it fights crop pests without harming beneficial insects and pollinators.

Marrone Bio Innovations, Inc. and Nufarm Australia Limited signed an agreement for Nufarm to be the exclusive distributor for the bioinsecticide in Australia and New Zealand. Royden Hearn from Nufarm told Business Wire, “We are excited to be working with MBI and see GRANDEVO as an exciting step forward in integrating biorationals into what we do. Combining this innovative product with Nufarm’s expertise in trees, nuts, vines and vegetables will have a positive impact for farmers who need to do more with less.”
