Fuzion Technologies’ Premix Insecticide Receives Registration

Fuzion Technologies, LLC has received its first product registration under the recently licensed Veloz Technology umbrella. Frenzy, with Veloz Technology, received EPA registration in March and is expected to be commercially available in May 2011.

Frenzy Veloz is a premix combination of the insecticide active ingredient, bifenthrin, and the Huntsman Petrochemical, LLC developed Veloz Technology insecticide delivery package.

Mike Steffeck, President of Fuzion Technologies, LLC says, “The combination of Veloz Technology and bifenthrin insecticide is a natural fit. Bifenthrin is one of the most versatile and complete insecticides ever discovered and launched. Its insect spectrum, broad crop label, favorable handling characteristics and residual control are an incredible combination. Its weakness is that it is one of the slowest acting of the pyrethroid family. Combining it with the speed and cuticle penetration of Veloz Technology will make Frenzy the most powerful tool in a retailer’s arsenal.”

Frenzy Veloz is registered for use on a wide variety of crops including corn, cotton, soybeans and canola as well as over 150 other fruits, vegetables and other crops. “Not only will Frenzy be labeled on a wide variety of crops, it will pack a fast and intense punch on a broad spectrum of insects including worms, mites, aphids and beetles,” adds Steffeck.

Frenzy Veloz will only be marketed through Fuzion Technologies’ proprietary retail network.

Casey McDaniel, head of the Fuzion B2B Retail Network says, “When we launched Fuzion Technologies almost two years ago, our commitment to independent retailers and cooperatives was that we would provide them with products and technology that they could market and differentiate themselves with. We’ve delivered differentiation through our Z-Brand adjuvants, micronutrients and post patent product offerings . With Frenzy Veloz, our Fuzion B2B Retail Network will be able to compete on multiple value levels.”

Fuzion Technologies employs a direct to the retailer distribution system called the Fuzion B2B Network. Independent retailers and cooperatives across the US are able to join the B2B network and receive a variety of product and marketing benefits. Retailers can join the B2B network by going to the website www.fuzionAg.com or by calling toll-free 1-888-Fuzion8 (1-888-389-4668).

“Since the announcement of our Veloz Technology licensing agreement, we have definitely seen an increase in new B2B customers, and more importantly, current customers are beginning to see even more benefits to supporting Fuzion Technologies and our direct to the retailer strategy and benefits,” notes McDaniel.

Fuzion Technologies has four more products in development with Huntsman Petrochemical, LLC, all containing Veloz Technology.

Steffeck concludes, “We received additional good news this week as we were able to advance two of the products to the final pre-submission steps. A third product is currently being tested on the sucking pest complex to determine its viability as a Veloz Technology candidate. We are working diligently on our goal to launch 1-2 of these in the next twelve months as well. But, today, we are very excited about the launch of Frenzy Veloz and the potential it has to be a very effective and profitable opportunity for our authorized Fuzion Technologies retailers.”
