Brandt, a manufacturer of agricultural specialty products, has signed a new distribution agreement with Verdesian Life Sciences, a plant health and nutrition company.

The agreement grants Brandt the exclusive right to sell and market Verdesian’s patented Steric chemistry in the Turf and Ornamental and eastern U.S. Ag markets under the Brandt Reaction product line name. In addition, Brandt will market a number of other key Verdesian products from the legacy Northwest Agricultural Products portfolio (excluding Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Nevada, Utah, Montana and Wyoming). Brandt currently sells and markets Brandt Sterics in the western U.S.

Brandt Sterics is a chemistry that improves nutrient uptake and efficiency of phosphorus, potassium and sulfur by delaying the reaction and tie-up of nutrients in the soil so they remain available to the plant for a longer period of time. Brandt Sterics are especially beneficial in high alkaline and acidic soils where nutrient tie-up is common.

The distribution agreement is effective immediately. Products will be available at select retailers and distributors throughout the U.S.
