CARY, N.C. (September 15, 2016) – Arysta LifeScience Canada recently announced an expansion of its distribution channel in the Prairies with Univar Canada. The expansion includes the entire Arysta LifeScience row-­crop portfolio of products, including EVEREST® 2.0 Herbicide, INFERNO™ DUO Herbicide, RANCONA® PINNACLE Seed Treatment and EVITO® Fungicide brands.

Univar Canada currently distributes Arysta LifeScience established brands, including NEXTSTEP® NG Herbicide, SELECT® Herbicide, INFERNO™ WDG Herbicide and DEPLOY® WDG Herbicide, so the expansion will be a great opportunity to help complete Univar's portfolio offering to independent dealers in Western Canada.
