M2 EQUITYBITES-September 27, 2016-Marrone Bio Innovations unveils Venerate XC bioinsecticide in California for use in conventional integrated pest management and organic systems

Biological products company Marrone Bio Innovations (NasdaqGM:MBII) (MBI) reported on Monday the launch of Venerate XC bioinsecticide in California for use use on a wide variety of fruit, vegetable, vine and nut crops in conventional integrated pest management (IPM) and organic systems.

The company added that Venerate XC is a liquid microbial-based, contact and ingestion insecticide that degrades insect exoskeletons and interferes with molting of chewing insects, nymphs and adult sucking insects, as well as with flies and mites.

Available in California in 2015, Venerate is labeled for use at four to eight quarts per acre. With the recent California Department of Pesticide Regulation approval, Venerate XC is labeled at a lower rate of one to four quarts per acre, according to the company.

Venerate XC is an easy-handling liquid formulation with flexibility to apply by ground or air. There is no limit to the number of applications allowed per season and has a minimal four hour re-entry interval (REI). The product is non-toxic to fish, birds, and most beneficial insects including honeybees and has the advantage of a zero-day pre-harvest interval (PHI) and an exemption from MRL (maximum residue level) tolerances.

When used along with the company's other bioinsecticide, Grandevo, which is a broad-spectrum insecticide, farmers have two bioinsecticides to help with resistance and residue management.Venerate XC should be used first if adult insects or mites are present. All MBI products should be used in accordance with label directions.
