Isagro USA, Inc. has signed an agreement to exclusively distribute Taegro 2 Biofungicide in the U.S. and Canada. The BioAg Alliance is a long-term partnership between Monsanto Co. and Novozymes. Taegro 2 provides broad-spectrum protection of major soil-borne and foliar diseases in fruit and vegetable crops. Taegro 2 complements conventional fungicides and has a favorable profile for beneficial insects, making it a great fit for Integrated Pest Management (IPM) in organic or conventional programs.

Taegro 2 contains the active ingredient Bacillus subtilis var. amyloliquefaciens strain FZB24, a naturally-occurring beneficial bacterium for control of soil and foliar diseases.
“Taegro 2 fits strongly into the profile of our short and long-term marketing strategy of offering a diverse biosolutions portfolio in the USA and Canada,” said Mike Allan, President of Isagro USA.
