It’s not often that we join together and bring all of your experts together for one column, but this is such an exciting topic that we all wanted to be here for it.
For our tree nut growers out there, it’s a crucial time in the growing season right now as you are preparing to reap the bounty of your hard work this year and from many years of planning and protection.
For the bio-based crop protection industry, it’s also a crucial time. Consumer demand has sparked an unprecedented growth in biologicals and the need for organic, flexible, nature-based and science-driven solutions for protecting the crops that feed a growing world.
For nearly 40 years, Certis and our legacy companies have provided the innovation, leadership, development and manufacturing of the most extensive portfolio of biological solutions. And this year, we are celebrating 20 years as a part of Mitsui & Co. which began our journey under the Certis brand name.
As we celebrate our 20th anniversary, we are embracing our leadership and our legacy by evolving our brand into – Certis Biologicals. This new brand fully defines who we are and what we can provide to growers just like you. Our team of sales and field development managers, not only in California but around the nation, are experts in biologicals and the benefits they offer to your plants, your farms and your environment. Combined we have more than 100 years of experience in agriculture, much of that in biologicals. We know the pests, diseases and weeds you face each year, and we know which bio-based product in our portfolio can help you keep your plants and your profits healthy.
Certis Biologicals manufactures many of our own products at our three facilities. We have invested capital, innovation and training in manufacturing capability at these facilities, two of which are proudly located in the US. This long-standing manufacturing expertise, which is unmatched in the industry, means we know how biologicals work from start to finish.
We also believe that our new name opens us up to help more growers like you in countries around the world. Right now, we export our products to more than 50 countries through a network of established distribution channels. As Certis Biologicals, growers worldwide will better understand that our company, our expertise and our products are available to them.
Our new brand brings an updated look for Certis, but we are all here to assure you of one thing that will never change—Certis Biologicals is still here for you! We know that you have many crop input choices and we are grateful that, time and time again, you choose us and our products. We are honored to stand with you in making sure that your crops are protected, profitable and sustained for a healthy future.
