Vive Crop Protection and SipcamRotam Announce Partnership

Toronto, Canada and Durham, NC, USA (June 6, 2017)

Vive Crop Protection and SipcamRotam are pleased to announce a partnership to bring to market new products containing Vive’s Allosperse Delivery System(™) for the turf, ornamental, and specialty markets. “Improved fertilizer mixing and the ability to target nematode and insect pests below the thatch layer are key needs for these markets,” said Michael Maravich, SipcamRotam’s Vice President, Specialty Business. “Using Vive’s innovative technology, we can improve turf quality and greening, increase root health, and deliver additional value for golf course superintendents and users.”

Vive’s CEO, Keith Thomas, agrees. “SipcamRotam is a leader in the turf, ornamental, and specialty markets. The Allosperse Delivery System makes pest control products better, and we’re excited to use the technology to provide new solutions in T&O for the first time.”

SipcamRotam and Vive expect to launch several products together, including Vive’s new abamectin-based nematicide and bifenthrin-based insecticide T&O products. Both of these products were approved by the US Environmental Protection Agency earlier this year.


SipcamRotam ( is a joint venture derived from SipcamAdvan and Rotam North America. Both companies offer a distribution-focused marketing strategy to provide chemical and value-added solutions, such as biorational and biostimulant products, to the agriculture, turf and ornamental (T&O) markets. Each company works on a global platform but offers local crop protection and T&O solutions. The joint venture is headquartered in Durham, North Carolina.
