Guelph, Ontario — Ray Chyc, President and owner of Engage Agro Corporation is pleased to announce the formation of Engage Agro USA LLC. Incorporated in the state of Delaware, the new company will build on the successful business model developed in Canada with the sole purpose of providing development, regulatory, marketing
and sales functions for unique, high value crop protection and nutrient products for growers in the USA.

Engage Agro Canada was formed in 1995 and has grown to over 35 people. "We hope and expect to be able to replicate our business strategy in the USA, and to create efficiencies for our supplier partners to the benefit of growers across both countries," says Chyc.

In launching Engage Agro USA LLC, Trevor Thorley, former Chief Operating Officer of AMVAC Chemical has agreed to accept the position of President of the new company and will begin creating the organization effective August 1, 2010, building off a list of products currently available from Canada. "I am extremely excited about the formation of this new business in the US and in having Trevor at the helm. He has tremendous market and customer knowledge and has led many successful businesses over the term of his 30 year career," says Chyc.

A native of England, Trevor found his calling growing up on his family's vegetable farm which led to his degree in Crop Science at Newcastle University. Over the course of his career he has held positions in sales and marketing in his 20 years with Bayer Corporation to include Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. In addition he was President and Chief Operating Officer for Valent USA and Executive Officer for parent company Sumitomo Chemical.

"I am very pleased to embark on this new venture and am excited about the possibilities. Our vision is to introduce innovation and differentiation of products which meet unique customer needs. We won't be simply another chemical company. Customer needs will be our primary concern and motivation," comments Thorley.

Thorley will initially be based out of Prescott, Ariz., and will establish company offices shortly.
