Agnition announced today that the Canadian Food Inspection Agency has granted registration for two products in Canada, Generate® for Crops and Commence® for Wheat seed treatment. Both products will be available to Canadian farmers for the 2017 growing season.
“After several years of proven results with Generate and Commence for Wheat in the United States, we’re pleased to bring our products to Canada,” said Agnition General Manager Cal Ludeman. “We bring value to the market through better plant health, and because our Microbial Catalyst® technology stimulates microbial activity we provide value through healthier soil. Generate and Commence not only provide an advantage to this year’s crop but also long-term value through increased soil health.”
Generate utilizes patented Microbial Catalyst technology to simulate microbes in the soil to increase nutrient uptake, optimizing crop growth and yields. Highly compatible and flexible to fit the farmer’s needs, Generate can be applied in-furrow, foliar or side-dress on corn, soybeans, alfalfa, wheat and sugar beets.
Commence for Wheat is an offensive seed treatment. It simulates the environment around the seed resulting in superior germination and early plant vigor. Microbial Catalyst technology and ProCoat™ encapsulation technology in Commence for Wheat create a microenvironment where seed can thrive. Commence for Wheat is compatible with other seed treatments and works as an add-on or stand-alone product.
“Through Generate and Commence for Wheat, Agnition helps farmers produce more productive plants and soils for healthier more profitable farms,” said Ludeman. “Our entry into Canada will begin a long-term relationship of providing customer-focused solutions that allow the farmer to succeed.”
Generate and Commence for Wheat are registered in compliance with the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) Fertilizer Safety Section (FSS) Fertilizers Act and Regulations, Registration Number 2016114A and 2016115A.
