09 February 2021, Buenos Aires: UPL and Novozymes, the world leader in biological solutions, announce a partnership to provide a range of biological products to the Argentinian market. Biological products made by Novozymes and marketed under the Nitragin brand will now become part of UPL’s portfolio, providing a complete range of bio solutions and crop protection products.
The relationship between both companies started two years ago with the inclusion of UPL’s Dimension brand fungicide seed treatment in a Nitragin branded line of inoculant products. The positive acceptance of these products in the market has led to the decision to extend the relationship and formalize a partnership under which the Nitragin inoculant portfolio will form part of the range of solutions marketed by UPL
UPL will contribute its global capabilities and extensive range of crop protection products and bio solutions, while Novozymes will leverage its 122 years of experience in the inoculant business, enabling the partnership to develop and market a complete set of solutions for an increasingly integrated and sustainable approach to agriculture.
“UPL is a strong and growing company in the Argentine market. Their innovative approach and demonstrated commercial capabilities provide a solid foundation for this partnership to deliver solutions for Argentine growers,” says Maximiliano D’Alessio, commercial lead of Novozymes’ BioAg business in Latin America.
Diego Gandulfo, marketing director of UPL Argentina, said: “Novozymes is the global leader in biological products and was the originator of the inoculant market in Argentina with its Nitragin brand products. We are delighted with this partnership, which will allow us to offer a complete portfolio of solutions to our customers. It also represents another important step in the advancement of our OpenAg purpose, creating an agriculture network that feeds sustainable growth for all. No limits, no borders.”
This partnership provides greater access to technology for producers, resulting in the achievement of improved yields in a sustainable manner.
