(Sherbrooke, Quebec, Canada) — Laboratoire M2, maker of THYMOX CONTROL®, the breakthrough, botanically derived Crop Protection line, has announced worldwide, exclusive agreements for distribution and product development rights in the field of Crop Protection with AlgaEnergy S.A., a Madrid based multinational biotech company, through its North American subsidiary, AlgaEnergy N.A. Inc.
THYMOX CONTROL® is a highly effective, biodegradable, non-toxic, and FIFRA 25b exempt pesticide, which is instantaneously dilutable and stable in water, an important advantage for all field applications. The effectiveness of THYMOX CONTROL® is based on its revolutionary technology which more effectively releases the antimicrobial action of thymol, the active ingredient found in the plant thyme. THYMOX CONTROL® has been demonstrated in field testing to be effective against some of the most difficult problems facing growers today, including fire blight and powdery mildew, among others. THYMOX CONTROL®’s antimicrobial properties kill microorganisms without harming living tissue or the environment.
“We are entering a very exciting phase of our company’s growth,” said Serge Auray, Founder and President of Laboratoire M2. “We’re extremely pleased to have been selected by AlgaEnergy as their partner in this important market of Crop Protection and biocontrol,” Mr. Auray continued, “bringing new botanically based solutions with such broad applications into new markets is a significant opportunity for Laboratoire M2.”
