Smaller package sizes of Regalia® CG, Grandevo® CG and Venerate® CG address the most economically damaging pests and diseases in cannabis production and for home gardeners

DAVIS, Calif., June 04, 2018 – Marrone Bio Innovations, Inc. (NASDAQ:MBII) (MBI), a leading provider of bio-based pest management and plant health products for the agriculture, turf and ornamental and water treatment markets, is pleased to announce the launch of REGALIA CG, GRANDEVO CG and VENERATE CG, a portfolio of products designed to control highly destructive pests and diseases, including powdery mildew, mites, thrips and aphids, during Cannabis production and home gardening.

REGALIA CG, GRANDEVO CG and VENERATE CG are multi-state-approved and extremely effective biological crop protection solutions for clean green cultivation, with the ability to generate increased yield and improved quality by reducing stresses from plant disease and insect and mite pests to the plant. When incorporated into an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program, these products can serve as the fundamental difference for successful growers.

“GRANDEVO and VENERATE are a game changer when it comes to IPM programs,” said Kyle Stamback, Director of Cultivation at NorthWestGrown i502 and owner of Lean Cultivation LLC. “I have eliminated all other preventive sprays and only use Grandevo and Venerate. These products have kept my gardens clean and my beneficial bugs happy. I’ve seen great results against all types of malice bugs, from leaf eaters to root aphids.”

“REGALIA has been considered the go-to product for powdery mildew control in the Cannabis industry,” said Kyle. “When using Regalia on a consistent schedule, I have documented increased vigor and stalk size. Due to the overall plant health, my yields have been remarkable. As a result of tank mixing Regalia and other great products offered by MBI, my plants have never been healthier and my IPM has never been simpler.”

REGALIA CG, GRANDEVO CG and VENERATE CG also help grow operations care for their employees and the environment. They are harvest flexible and worker-friendly with a four-hour re-entry interval, minimal personal protective equipment requirements and the ability to be used right before harvest without concern for synthetic chemical residues.

“Outreach to hundreds of growers and industry leaders helped MBI create a solution that addresses needs in information sharing, education and training, ultimately producing products they can use with confidence backed by science,” said Lisa Malabad, Cannabis Segment Lead at Marrone Bio Innovations. “We continue to work with state regulatory agencies to ensure each of our products is aligned with all requirements and guidelines, giving growers peace of mind.”

REGALIA CG and VENERATE CG are available in one quart and one-gallon sizes. Grandevo CG is available in one and four-pound packages.
