GENEVA, Switzerland, February 17, 2022 – Growers in Europe will have access to a novel, sustainable option for enhancing plant health and crop quality through a new agreement between Corteva Agriscience and Pro Farm Technologies, a subsidiary of Marrone Bio Innovations. Under the agreement, Corteva will be the exclusive European distributor for Kinsidro® Grow, a novel, foliar bionutrient that delivers key nutrients resulting in increased plant vigor.
“Corteva Agriscience continues to bring new and innovative solutions to market by offering natural-origin products that improve crop performance and resilience, and that work complementarily with our conventional crop protection solutions,” said Susanne Wasson, President, Crop Protection Business Platform, Corteva Agriscience. “We’re excited to work with Marrone Bio to scale up and maximize sustainable options that help farmers meet changing environmental conditions while keeping their crops productive and healthy.”
Kinsidro Grow is a proprietary product developed by Pro Farm Technologies that optimizes nutrient conditions in plants resulting in improved plant health and crop quality. Through foliar application on crops during the vegetative growth stage, the bionutrient delivers better yields and more favorable returns on investment. Kinsidro Grow is also easy to use and compatible with a grower’s current agronomic practices.
“This agreement combines Marrone Bio’s leadership in the development of biological, sustainable crop solutions with Corteva Agriscience’s global market leadership. Working with Corteva, we will bring our game-changing foliar technology to European growers who know and trust Corteva,” said Kevin Helash, chief executive officer of Marrone Bio Innovations.
This collaboration represents another step forward for Corteva’s expanding global biologicals portfolio, which is dedicated to developing biostimulants, biofertilizers, bionutrients, biocontrol and pheromone products with proven, predictable performance. Kinsidro Grow will provide value through enhanced crop vitality and enhancing yield potential and sustainability.
The multi-year agreement, which goes into immediate effect, applies to row crops in Europe such as corn, wheat, soybeans and cotton.
