Apr 3, 2020Summit Agro launches new website, fungicide for late blight, fusarium, rhizoctonia
Summit Agro USA has launched a new website designed from the ground up to be a solutions-centric tool for growers, dealers, consultants and PCAs.
“We surveyed our customers and distribution partners about website resources. What we found was that these other sites tend to be product-focused in their approach,” said Bill Lewis, Summit Agro CEO. “We wanted our website to be an easily searchable tool that allows users to quickly and simply get answers for the control of the specific pests threatening their particular crops. This mobile-friendly website fits with Summit Agro’s overall strategy of bringing the market a unique mix of conventional and biological offerings.”
In order to achieve this, a robust database drives the site’s search function. It catalogs multiple diseases, insects and weeds for over 600 crops. This makes the Summit Agro website among the most comprehensive, easy-to-use sites in the industry.
The site can be accessed at www.summitagro-usa.com.
In addition to the launch of the new website, Summit Agro has brought to market two new products, including Timorex Act fungicide. A purely organic formulation, Timorex Act is a botanical broad-spectrum fungicide with preventative and curative activity based on an extract of the tree tea plant. “An OMRI-listed product, Timorex ACT is poised to meet the rigorous standards for sustainable agriculture,” said Fred Yates, Summit Agro marketing manager for biologicals.
Timorex Act can be used prevent and control diseases including powdery mildew, downy mildew, both early and late blight, Sour rot, rice grain complex, brown leaf spot, black sigatoka, and diseases caused by sclerotinia, botrytis, fusarium, rhizoctonia, cladosporium, colletotrichum, cercospora and several bacterial species.
