Bioline AgroSciences buys Certirol from Certis Europe

Bioline AgroSciences, a subsidiary of InVivo Agriculture, signed a deal to buy the product Certirol, IP and manufacturing from Certis Europe.

The acquisition adds the Certirol product to Bioline’s portfolio and "represents the culmination
of a significant year for the company", Bioline said.

In March 2016 Bioline was bought by InVivo Agriculture and has since joined forces with their existing biosolutions subsidiary, Biotop, to launch Bioline AgroSciences as a "truly global player in the Biosolutions market".

Certirol is a labour saving delivery method for releasing predatory mites that are used in control of insect pests, predominantly thrips species in ornamental and cut flower crops.

Bioline commercial director Martin Zuijderwijk said: "The Certirol product offers a valuable addition to the Bioline portfolio, giving an immediate benefit to our thrips control offering, whilst also providing exciting opportunities for future developments."
