Eden Research product receives key Spanish label extension

Proactive Investors - Eden Research PLC (LON:EDENE)'s flagship biofungicide, Mevalone, marketed as Araw in Spain, has received authorisation for expanded use in the country.

The product can now be used to treat powdery mildew on 22 new crops, botrytis cinerea on 20 new crops, rust disease on eight new crops, and sclerotinia on four new crops.

Included on the list are avocados, kiwis, mangos, cherries, chickpeas, green beans, asparagus, leeks, and artichokes. This expansion, achieved by Eden's partner Sipcam Iberia, makes Araw one of the most versatile biofungicides available for organic and conventional farming.

Araw has been effective against botrytis in grapes since its 2016 launch and gained popularity across a range of horticultural crops after a label expansion in 2021.

This approval will allow Spanish growers to protect their crops and meet high-quality export standards to the EU, UK, and other premium markets.

Eden anticipates that the broader market for Araw will boost revenues from 2025 onward, with further details to be provided as commercialisation commences.

Chief executive Sean Smith said: "Today's announcement is an excellent demonstration of our strategy to pursue growth opportunities through both new product introductions and with existing products by targeting new crop types and new disease targets.

"We are delighted to build on the success of our longstanding relationship with Sipcam. They have done an outstanding job of making the Iberian region an important and strong revenue-generating territory for the company.

"This label extension represents a significant additional growth opportunity for us. It not only includes numerous new crops and diseases, but it also includes a number of high-value crops that are particularly disease prone."
