Gowan Company announced that Ecoflora, its newly formed division dedicated to biological development and innovation, received the award for “Best New Biofungicide Product” for its botanical fungicide, EcoSwing, at the 2019 Biopesticide Summit in the UK.
Jim Petta, Ecoflora President, said, “It is very exciting to see the industry recognize one of the newest innovative tools for growers around the globe. We appreciate the committee at the Biopesticide Summit for an excellent conference and the opportunity to discuss the new EcoFlora and Gowan. EcoSwing is the first in a pipeline of innovative products we are working to bring to the market.”
