Vive Crop Protection registers first product for Canadian market


Vive Crop Protection Inc. has registered its first Canadian product with the introduction of AZteroid FC3.3 fungicide.

“Bringing cutting edge innovation to the pesticide industry is groundbreaking work and this first Canadian registration has been several years in the making,” says Dr. Darren Anderson, co-founder and CEO of Ontario-based 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 FC3.3 fungicide.”

The product is registered for use on potatoes.

The product includes Vive’s patented Allosperse Delivery Technology, meaning growers can use the fungicide in-furrow with liquid fertilizers, micronutrients, and other crop inputs with reduced risks of clogged nozzles, lines, or filters.

“AZteroid FC3.3 fungicide gives Canadian potato growers a new tool to combat soil-borne diseases with the convenience of best-in-class fertilizer compatibility,” says Dan Bihlmeyer, VP of global sales at Vive Crop Protection. “After success in the U.S. for years, we are thrilled to bring AZteroid FC3.3 to the Canadian ag market.”
