A&L Biological receives registration for biocontrol of CGMMV

CANADA- Cuc-GUARDTM, an attenuated virus technology for the prevention of Cucumber Green Mottle Mosaic Virus (CGMMV), is now registered for use in Canada. A&L Biological Inc., a subsidiary of A&L Canada, announced they have been granted registration from the Pesticide Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) for Cuc-GUARD, for use in the production of greenhouse cucumber against green mottle mosaic virus.


This virus is very difficult to manage and can have a devastating impact to cucurbit crops. Cuc-GUARD acts as a ″vaccine″ for target crops to prevent the infection and spread of the pathogen. Efficacy data indicates that when applied preventatively, Cuc-GUARD provides protection from the pathogen and improves both crop quality and yield. Cuc-GUARDTM is the first of several plant vaccine solutions to be developed from the unique discovery platform at A&L Biological.

″We are thrilled to announce that following years of research and development, Cuc-GUARD is now available to Canadian greenhouse growers,″ said Rob Field, VP Business Development and Marketing for A&L Canada.
