Vive Crop Protection Inc. announced its first Canadian product registration with the introduction of AZteroid FC fungicide.


“This first Canadian registration has been several years in the making,” says Dr. Darren Anderson, co-founder and CEO of Vive Crop Protection. “At Vive, we’ve been delivering precision chemistry solutions to the U.S. market since 2016. I couldn’t be prouder to bring the first of many new solutions to Canadian growers with the introduction of AZteroid FC fungicide.”


Powered by Vive’s patented Allosperse delivery technology, AZteroid FC fungicide delivers long-lasting disease control and compatibility, enabling growers to use AZteroid FC in-furrow with their liquid fertilizers, micronutrients and other crop inputs without clogged nozzles, lines or filters. Labeled for in-furrow use on potatoes, AZteroid FC protects against Black scurf, Silver scurf and Rhizoctonia diseases.


“AZteroid FC fungicide gives Canadian potato growers a new tool to combat soilborne diseases with the convenience of best-in-class fertilizer compatibility,” says Dan Bihlmeyer, vice-president of global sales at Vive Crop Protection. “After success in the U.S. for years, we are thrilled to bring AZteroid FC to the Canadian ag market.”
