Seipasa, a Spanish company specialized in the development and formulation of bioinsecticides, bio-fungicides, and biostimulants for agriculture, has obtained the extension of the phytosanitary registry of the biological fungicide Fungisei for the cultivation of grapes in Mexico. The certification granted by Cofepris, the Federal Commission for the Protection against Sanitary Risks, allows using this product to control Botrytis cinerea. The product had been previously certified in the country to control other diseases, such as Alternaria or cinderella, in a wide variety of crops.
Fungisei is a fungicide and bactericide of microbiological origin developed from the exclusive strain of Bacillus subtilis, a highly effective fungicidal microorganism in the control of different diseases. In addition to Mexico, the product has a phytosanitary registration in the US, Peru, Morocco, Turkey, and Ivory Coast.
Fungisei is also in the process of being registered in some of the main markets in Africa, Latin America, and Europe, where the active substance that gives rise to the product is classified as Low Risk according to community regulations (1107/2009).
Carlos Castro, the commercial director of Seipasa-México, said that this new label expansion allowed Seipasa to offer Mexican producers high value-added solutions to improve the health and final quality of their crops and harvests.
"Our goal is to offer producers the best solutions for growing strategic products, such as grapes. Fungisei is a bio fungicide with a wide international trajectory and with proven efficacy in different agricultural systems around the world. This new extension of the label for grapes confirms Seipasa's commitment to phytosanitary registries and our desire to reach the market with certified solutions with high added value,” stated Castro.
Alliance with Natural Grow
Fungisei is marketed in Mexico through Natural Grow's commercial and technical network, a firm specializing in the distribution of certified organic solutions oriented towards sustainable, rational, and environmentally responsible agriculture.
Carlos Castro recalled that Seipasa and Natural Grow share a solid alliance in Mexico and highlighted their extensive experience with the Seipasa catalog, as well as their deep technical knowledge of the Mexican market.
“Natural Grow is a great ally in the broadest and deepest sense of the term. We share solid values on which we have built an alliance to favor the future and the transformation of Mexico's agriculture. Our mission is to provide producers with valuable, sustainable, profitable, and efficient solutions,” Castro stressed.
