KALAMAZOO, MI--(Marketwired - February 21, 2017) - OHP, Inc. a leading marketer of crop protection solutions for the production ornamentals market, announces a new partnership with Vestaron Corp. of Kalamazoo, MI.

Under the terms of the agreement effective immediately, OHP will market Spear™O, a greenhouse bioinsecticide that controls thrips, whiteflies, and spider mites, pests that are regularly cited as toughest to control for greenhouse ornamental growers.

"We are excited to bring Spear O to the market as another tool for the greenhouse ornamental grower," says Dan Stahl, OHP vice president and general manager. "Whether a grower relies on conventional or a biological insecticide approach or a combination of the two, Spear O is a great choice."

Vestaron is a privately-held biotechnology company that specializes in the development of safe and effective bioinsecticides derived from naturally-occurring peptides.

"We are very enthusiastic about partnering with OHP to commercialize this product," says Vestaron CEO John Sorenson. "OHP has a strong reputation in this segment of the market and we expect the relationship to be a very fruitful one. I can't think of a better company to bring the safety and effectiveness of this biological insecticide to growers throughout the U.S."
