Distribution agreement to soon make insecticide available nationwide

A new agreement between Vestaron and Simplot Grower Solutions will soon make nationwide distribution of a Vestaron insecticide possible.

Vestaron’s novel, peptide-based insecticides offer alternatives to the challenges of traditional chemical products, including growing resistance and environmental effects, according to a news release.

Vestaron’s SPEAR LEP insecticide brand targets lepidopteran pests on tree nuts, fruits, vegetables and specialty crops, while its BASIN insecticide targeting pests including aphids and mites recently won EPA approval.

Nationwide distribution of SPEAR LEP is expected to begin in the next month, according to the release.

“We are excited to join forces with Simplot Grower Solutions — a company with a storied history of innovation on behalf of agriculture — to bring Vestaron’s novel solutions to a broader audience for greater adoption,” Ben Cicora, Vestaron senior vice president of Sales and Marketing, said in the release. “This partnership represents a significant step forward in our mission to transform agriculture by providing farmers with the novel solutions they need to meet the growing challenges of modern agriculture.”

Simplot, an agribusiness innovator for more than 90 years, is a total solutions agricultural supply company.

“Simplot is proud to partner with Vestaron in our aligned commitment to deliver the leading biological crop protection solutions our farmer customers require,” Dean Williams, head of Product Management for Simplot Grower Solutions, said. “This collaboration reinforces our dedication to supporting farmers with the tools they need to continue their legacy for years to come.”
