DAVIS, Calif., June 13, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Today, Marrone Bio Innovations, Inc. (NASDAQ:MBII) (MBI) announced EPA approval of a new formulation of its dry biological insecticide. Grandevo WDG, which is a biological, microbial-based insecticide that contains several active compounds that repel, stop feeding and reduce reproduction to prevent the development of damaging populations of sucking and chewing insects, flies and mites.

Grandevo WDG offers improved handling and better, more convenient packaging. The water dispersible granule mixes easily in spray tanks with no dust or foam, which saves applicators valuable time to the field.
