Greenspire Global & Helena sign distribution agreement

Greenspire Global, Inc. is pleased to announce it has entered into a distribution agreement with Helena Chemical to sell Procidic bactericide and fungicide.

“We’re pleased to have Helena, a leading national distributor for crop production materials, as a partner to supply fruit and vegetable growers with a proven option for environmentally friendly disease control,” says Steve Knauss, President of Greenspire Global.

In partnership with Helena’s head of research, Dave Cheetham, Greenspire Global conducted numerous in-house research trials validating the performance claims behind Procidic. The product is an agricultural bactericide and fungicide compound formulated to protect crops during all stages of growth. Procidic’s ingredients allow crops to grow the healthy, natural way.

“We’re excited to have Procidic in the product line for Helena crop consultants, to offer a solution for organic and conventional growers looking for solid disease control that lets them reduce their reliance on synthetic pesticides,” says Bob Lovatt, national organics manager for Helena.

The initial focus will be fall and winter leafy vegetables, fruiting vegetables, melons, cucumbers and berry production in California, Arizona and Florida. The market will expand to include grapes, hops, tree fruit and many other crops in spring 2018.

For more information, visit Greenspire Global and Helena in booth 408 at the Organic Grower Summit December 13-14 in Monterey, California, or contact Greenspire Global at inquiries@greenspireglobal.com or 515-288-0441.
