MONTREAL, May 3, 2017 /CNW/ -- Inocucor Technologies Inc. of Montreal signed an agreement with Axter Agroscience Inc., one of Canada's leading providers and distributors of foliar feeding crop solutions, to distribute Inocucor's biological crop input Synergro™ in Canada. Under the agreement, Axter will also have certain prime-mover rights to rapidly develop the market in Quebec and Ontario.
Synergro™ is a live-cell formulation for high-value produce, such as strawberries, tomatoes, lettuce and broccoli. This state-of-the-art biological product, approved by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) in December 2016, is among the first microbial products registered in Canada. It is also a Pro-Cert Approved Input for use in organic growing in Canada.
Inocucor uses a patented fermentation process to combine multi-strains of bacteria and yeasts into powerful soil and plant optimizers that are safe for people and the environment.
"Axter is happy to distribute this new microbial product that has already demonstrated its value in the American market, said Axter CEO Pierre Migner. "We believe the addition of Synergro™ to our product line will allow us to better serve organic and conventional vegetable and fruit producers by improving crop yields, shortening growing periods and creating healthier and more resilient soils."
Axter Agroscience is a leader in the field of biostimulants. Its extensive research programs have given it the ability to evaluate and develop products that increase farmers' profitability. Axter has been collaborating with Incocucor since 2013 on the development of its second-generation product, Synergro FreeTM for use in corn, soybeans and wheat.
Synergro will be available through Axter's well-established distribution network in all the Canadian provinces.
Inocucor is an ag biotech company that develops powerful natural biological products for agriculture targeting the phyto-microbiome—the seeds, plants, root systems and the soil surrounding them. Inocucor's first-generation product, Garden Solution®, soon to be re-branded as Synergro™, employs live microbes to actively improve the health of the entire phyto-microbiome. Its second product, Synergro Free™, and future generations of Inocucor products are powerful biological formulations for bio-stimulation, bio-fertility and bio-control targeting mainstream production agriculture.
