Vegalab, Inc. to Provide Pratum Co-op More Options for Their Northwest Farmer Members

Vegalab to Expand Sales in Oregon with New Partnership

PALM BEACH, FL and SALEM, OR, Jan. 02, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NEWMEDIAWIRE – Vegalab, Inc. ("the Company"), (OTCQB: VEGL), an industry leader in the soft chemistry, natural agrochemical segment, today announced the Company will begin selling its products through all three locations of Pratum Co-op, a prominent and rapidly growing agricultural retailer based in the diverse growing region of the Willamette Valley in Oregon. 

Founded in 1946, more than half a century ago in the community of Pratum, just east of Salem, Oregon, Pratum Co-op began handling the prime seed produced in the fertile soils of the Willamette Valley.  Today, Pratum Co-op, a supplier of fertilizer, crop protection and petroleum products, has three state of the art locations to serve its members who are prominent growers of grass seeds, blueberries, hazelnuts, grapes, hay, carrot seed and more. Two locations in the Willamette Valley service four counties and one location in Central Oregon services a two county region. Over the past several months, Pratum Co-op has been trialing Vegalab products and plans to initially focus selling the Vegalab soft chemistry pesticide lines and water treatment chemistries that include Nematode Control, Mildew Control, Spider Mite Control, Spore Control and WaterCure to their diverse cooperative members.

Bill Hubbell, Procurement Manager at Pratum Co-op, stated, “The team at Pratum Co-op is consistently seeking ways to enhance the agricultural businesses of our clients. Better pesticides and water treatments will only improve the harvests of the Willamette Valley, and we are pleased to work with the Vegalab team and expand their presence in our market.”   

David Selakovic, CEO of Vegalab stated, “We are happy to work with such an established agricultural group as Pratum Co-op. Pratum Co-op will bring our products into the Willamette Valley, a massively productive agricultural area. Agricultural products of the valley include many varieties of berries and vegetables which will benefit from Vegalab’s non-toxic and beneficial lines of specialty products. The Valley also produces most of the grass seed, Christmas trees, and hazelnuts sold in North America and its greenhouse and nursery stock is unrivaled. We look forward to working with the agricultural community in Oregon and we look forward to a long-term relationship with Pratum Co-op.”
