Univar Solutions Inc. (NYSE: UNVR), a global chemical and ingredient distributor and provider of value-added services, announced today the addition of three new Novozymes BioAg inoculants, BioniQ, TagTeam BioniQ, and Optimize LV, to the NexusBioAg portfolio of crop biological and fertility products. NexusBioAg, a division of Univar Solutions, is the exclusive distributor of Novozymes inoculants in Canada. The addition of these innovative inoculants enhances and expands NexusBioAg’s already extensive portfolio of inoculants, micronutrients, nitrogen stabilizers, and foliars for the Canadian agricultural market.
NexusBioAg is committed to launching innovative, cutting-edge products that provide value to the Canadian agricultural industry and benefit its growers. The three new inoculants are proven to increase yields and enhance crop performance for pulses including lentils and peas, cereals (small grains), canola and soybeans.
They result from years of collaboration with customers, research and development, and multiyear field trials conducted across Canada through the BioAdvantage Trials (BAT) program. The launch of these inoculants, solely distributed and marketed by NexusBioAg, ensures they will be on farms in time for the 2021 spring planting season across Canada.
