Vive Crop Protection and SipcamRotam announce a partnership to bring to market new products containing Vive’s Allosperse Delivery System for the turf, ornamental and specialty markets.

“Improved fertilizer mixing and the ability to target nematode and insect pests below the thatch layer are key needs for these markets,” says Michael Maravich, SipcamRotam’s vice president of specialty business. “Using Vive’s innovative technology, we can improve turf quality and greening, increase root health and deliver additional value for golf course superintendents and users.”

“SipcamRotam is a leader in the turf, ornamental and specialty markets,” says Vive CEO Keith Thomas. “The Allosperse Delivery System makes pest control products better, and we’re excited to use the technology to provide new solutions in turf and ornamental for the first time.”

SipcamRotam and Vive expect to launch several products together, including Vive’s new abamectin-based nematicide and bifenthrin-based insecticide turf and ornamental products. Both these products were approved by the EPA earlier this year.
