Devgen nv and Dogal A.S. announced the approval by the Ministry of Agriculture of Turkey to sell its nematicide product in Turkey for use on tomato and cucumber grown under protective cover. Devgen nv and Dogal A.S. are immediately starting the commercial launch of Devguard® through a nationwide advertising, sales and marketing campaign, targeting sales in the August season.
With a production under protective cover of more than 2 million tons of tomatoes and close to 1 million ton of cucumbers, Turkey is an important worldwide player for the production of these high value crops with substantial exports into EU countries, according to the companies.
