Hybrid Solutions

The Next Wave in Food Protection

One thing is certain: synthetic inputs will continue to play a significant role in conventional crop production. But it is ever more apparent that new avenues of innovation need to be pursued in order to both sustain and improve the ecosystem.

Ensuring the continuity of the food supply in the years to come will require “bridge solutions” – formulations  that combine synthetic and biologic elements, enabling growers to transition from a system rooted in toxic pesticides to a healthier, zero-residue, biological-based system. STK introduces Regev and Kruv.

Welcome to the Age of Hybridity

Integrating biologics into conventional spraying programs – whether in pure form or in pre-mixed hybrid formulations – is the next logical revolution in enabling food growers in all sectors and geographies to meet market demand, reduce their ecological footprint and thrive economically.

STK develops hybrid formulations that are the first of their kind in the market – balanced, ready-to-spray solutions that offer farmers a simple mode of adopting biologics without needing to change how they operate.

 

Hybrid solutions can be used with standard spraying equipment and have the same shelf-life as synthetic products. Moreover, they do not require a grower to have any inherent knowledge of how a biologic formula behaves, or how to combine it with synthetics so that its mode of action performs according to expectations.

STK’s botanical-based and hybrid food protection solutions complement the conventional, at once extending the lifespan of chemical efficacy and mitigating its harmful effects on food, people and the environment. This hybrid approach is a practical path towards a more secure and sustainable agricultural ecosystem.

Integration is the Revolution

  • Synergistic effect: Combining synthetics with biologics improves overall efficacy
  • Dual Mode of Action (MOA): Reduces the potential of pests to develop resistance and prolongs the efficacy of the chemical AI (Active Ingredient)
  • Reduced chemical load: Enables growers to manage spraying strategically and lower residuals in the final product
  • Lower impact, higher yield: Fewer chemical inputs minimizing impact on the environment and optimizing crop performance

STK Hosts Banana Grower Delegation from Brazil

March 2018 STK bio-ag technologies, a leading company in the development and marketing of botanical-based solutions, hosted today a technical visit  of brazilian banana growers to learn more about the positive effects of  botanicals on banana and its added benefits for crop protection. The visit began at STK HQs, followed by a 5 day technical tour throughout Israel to learn from various farms, banana specialists and listen to professional lectures in the industry. The VIP delegation of 15 visitors composed by producers, consultants and managers of associations covering all regions of Banana production in Brazil, visited as part of study tour the premises of STK HQs in Israel. The growers and consultants who will take part in this trip, represent more than 15,000 hectares of banana and the associations and cooperatives represent more than 80,000 hectares. The vist included and extensive tour of the the STK lab, during which the delegation was exposed to the company’s scientific and technological approach to researching and developing botanical-based solutions, as well as the exacting quality control practices employed in producing consistently effective commercial-grade formulations. Considerable discussion focused on Timorex Gold®, STK’s flagship solution which is currently sold and used on various crops throughout Brazil. The environmentally-friendly, botanical-based food protection fungicide increases productivity and efficiency in crops, while reducing chemical load residues on the produce. The delegation was informed about the benefits of Timorex Gold® for banana growers, including short PHI, zero residue, and the enlarging and promotion of the leaf surface. Timorex Gold®is certified worldwide by leading organic associations, including IBD Brazil, ECOCERT, BCS and others
