Cohort Wholesale will lead the commercialization of new CeraSulfur Liquid Sulfur Fungicide across the Canadian horticultural market, thanks to an agreement between Andermatt Canada and Cohort.

While raw and formulated dry sulfurs are commonly used in Canadian fruit and vegetable production. CeraSulfur will be the first liquid sulfur available to Canadian farmers.  Like other liquid products, CeraSulfur is easier and quicker to load and mix in spray tanks while also providing excellent disease control.

“Farmers will benefit from the hydrophilic nature of this product and what it offers mixing in the spray tank,” commented Colin Smith, Andermatt Canada sales and market manager, in a press release.

“The use of the older, dry sulfur fungicides is widespread, particularly by grape growers, because they work well,” said Trevor Latta, Cohort Wholesale manager, in a press release. “CeraSulfur will allow farmers to experience all the benefits of formulated sulfur while addressing the primary complaint with those older products – the inconvenience and challenge of loading and mixing.”

CeraSulfur has been approved by the Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) for use in outdoor fruit and vegetable crops, such as grapes, and greenhouse tomato and cucumbers. Cohort Wholesale’s technical sales team will be working with growers and their crop input retailers to establish CeraSulfur demonstration sites across Canada.
