Newport Beach, CA -- AMGUARD Environmental Technologies ("AMGUARD"), the
specialty markets division of AMVAC Chemical Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of American Vanguard
Corporation ("AVD"), is pleased to announce it has entered into a supply agreement with NewLeaf Symbiotics
to bring biological solutions to major North American specialty markets.

Under the agreement, AMGUARD becomes the exclusive seller of NewLeaf products including bio-stimulants
and bio-protection products in golf, ornamental, controlled-environment agriculture (CEA), cannabis, and
consumer markets in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico. Together these production areas are estimated to
comprise slightly more than 50 million treatable acres in North America.

The agreement broadens a partnership established in October 2022 between NewLeaf and AMVAC, an
American Vanguard Company, to bring biological solutions to North American agricultural crop markets
including recently launched BioWake dual-use biological seed lubricant for corn and soybeans. This
partnership significantly enhances AVD's strategic growth initiative in GreenSolutions.

Shayne M. Wetherall, CEO, AMGUARD Environmental Technologies, commented: "NewLeaf Symbiotics
technology and current product offering of naturally occurring microbes strengthen AMGUARD's specialty
markets portfolio. As we leverage our extensive market access and sales force expertise, we look forward to
working closely with the NewLeaf team to bring their novel biological solutions to the North American market."

Brent Smith, President of NewLeaf Symbiotics, said: "NewLeaf Symbiotics, as a major player in biologicals, is
eager to broaden our North American market penetration through our partnership with AMVAC/AMGUARD.
We bring to this partnership our proprietary microbial library, proven research and development capabilities,
and current commercial products that deliver a range of measurable benefits. Longer term, we look forward
to finding additional synergies among the technologies and product lines of both our companies."
