Syngenta Crop Protection Canada announces seed treatment project with Innovotech
Date:3/22/2010

GUELPH, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - March 17, 2010) - Syngenta Crop Protection Canada, Inc. today announced its intent to work with Innovotech (TSX VENTURE:IOT), a Canadian biotechnology product development company, clearing the way for continued research trials in North America on the new plant bacterial blight research product, oxysilver nitrate.

Earlier this year Innovotech and Syngenta entered into a mutually beneficial agreement by which Syngenta will conduct research trials of oxysilver nitrate in a seed treatment application for control of bacterial blight.

"We are very pleased to play a part in the development of this new technology," said Coby Long, North American Seed Care marketing head at Syngenta. "We believe it is important to continually seek out new innovative pest management solutions for producers, both in North America and worldwide."

Bacteria, like fungi, exist in the soil as part of a dynamic agricultural system. Dry beans as well as other crops, can be greatly affected by bacterial diseases. Bacterial blight is a serious problem for many crops with very few acceptable control products available to Canadian producers.
