US: Crop protection products receive approval in California and Florida

Eden Research has received regulatory approvals for its formulated products Cedroz™ in California and Mevalone® and Cedroz in Florida.

These approvals follow regulatory authorization from the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in September 2022 for all six petitions submitted by Eden (three active ingredients, two formulated products, and Eden's Sustaine® polymer-free encapsulation technology.

California and Florida are key areas of focus given the prevalence of high-value horticultural crops where Eden believes its products are highly effective - including tomatoes, cucumbers, strawberries, oranges, and grapes.

Mevalone has been approved in Florida for use on botrytis on table and wine grapes.

Cedroz has been approved in California and Florida for use on all relevant species of "nematodes" on fruits and vegetables, including eggplant, peppers, tomatoes, cantaloupes, cucumbers, pumpkins, squash, zucchini, carrots, strawberries, and grapes, in the following states: California, Florida, Georgia, Michigan, New York, Oregon, Texas, Washington, and Wisconsin. Nematodes are microscopic worms, and some species are plant parasites that can dramatically affect plant health and yield.

Eden's application for regulatory approval in California is still in progress, with clearance expected to be received soon.

Sean Smith, Chief Executive Officer of Eden Research plc, commented: "California and Florida are amongst the most significant addressable markets in the US considering their production of high-value crops. These approvals represent another important step in Eden's expansion into the United States, the world's second-largest food market. We look forward to sharing the progress of our other applications in individual states from across the US in due course." 

"As a small but innovative British business, we are proud of the impact that Eden can have on the global stage. Our pioneering products and technologies are receiving regulatory approval and being distributed by our partners across Europe, Africa, and now North America, accelerating change in the sustainable agricultural space globally."
