Ceradis announces registration for CeraSulfur in Turkey with distribution by Lances Link-Part of Groupe De Sangosse.
Ceradis Crop Protection B.V. confirms its new innovative bio sulfur fungicide CeraSulfur has obtained registration in Turkey for application in grape and tomato; two of the economically very important crops for the country notably for exports.
The distribution will be performed by Lances Link under the trademark of “Lumino “.
CeraSulfur SC is a groundbreaking product, the first sulfur fungicide derived from agricultural sources. The sulfur is made by bacteria that turn hydrogen sulfide (H2S), a byproduct of biogas production, into elemental sulfur. With the origin of the process being farm waste, this organic and circular (“farm to farm”) sulfur has a different chemical structure and a smaller particle size, making it more effective than conventional sulfur. Also, it has a hydrophilic nature as opposed to conventional sulfur, which is hydrophobic, making it far easier to handle and combine with other products. So CeraSulfur offers the grower a no dust, lower sulfur need, less residue, great mixability and easy tank cleaning application. This unique and patented product was awarded the Bronze Medal at the prestigious 2020 Sival Innovation Competition in France.
“The crop protection industry is facing consistent pressure to switch from chemical to biological pesticides. We have already launched our product in France this year with our partner there, DeSangosse, under the tradenames Whisper and Kashmir. We are very happy to add Turkey, in line with our global ambitions for CeraSulfur.” states Willem-Jan Meulemeesters, CEO of Ceradis.

About Ceradis B.V
Ceradis develops and sells innovative environmental-friendly products for plant nutrition & crop protection. We were founded as spin off from Wageningen University & Research (Netherlands). We have developed biofungicides based on macro-organisms or natural products. We have also developed and patented (biological) formulation additives that boost the efficacy of existing Active Ingredients. For chemical Active Ingredients this results in a reduced rate of chemicals use per hectare of farmland and lower residues on the crop, making them more environmentally friendly. For biological Active Ingredients, this can enhance their performance or lower the required dose rate. Ceradis has four technology platforms, on the basis of which it develops products. Some of our products are already successfully being used by farmers for several years. For more information, visit us at www.ceradis.com and follow us at LinkedIn.
