Launched on peanuts, with future label extensions on potatoes, wine grapes, tomatoes, peppers, blueberries and tobacco
September 10th, 2018 (Petach Tikva, Israel) – STK bio-ag technologies, the innovative Israeli-based leader in bio-ag technologies for sustainable crop protection and aquaculture, is announcing that its ‘hybrid’ fungicide STK REGEV® is now registered in Argentina for peanuts, with future label extensions on potatoes, wine grapes, tomatoes, peppers, blueberries and tobacco. STK REGEV® protects and heals a variety of diseases, including Cercospora Arachidicola (early leaf spot), Cercosporidium Personatum (late leaf spot) for peanuts, Powdery mildew, Alternaria, Rust and Botritis for other crops.
STK REGEV® is the world first foliar ‘hybrid’ fungicide, and is currently used successfully in ten countries in various regions of the world, with plans for global expansion in 2019.
STK REGEV® is a ready to use fungicide, used exactly as other fungicides, but with the added benefits of reduced chemical residues and much better resistance management due to its highly complex formulation of Tea Tree Oil and Difenoconazole. This ready to use fungicide serves as a ‘bridge’, enabling farmers who have never used any biological product to try one, without having to mix, rotate or do anything different, thereby expanding the use of biologicals products for sustainable agriculture.
Field test data has shown STK REGEV® performs as well or better than solo chemical leader market fungicides. Only with REGEV®, farmers will realize all the benefits of lower chemical load, reduced chemical residues and having a new tool for resistance management.
According to STK Argentina’s country manager Mariano Laurencena, STK REGEV® is going to be distributed exclusively by SummitAgro.
STK is also happy to answer questions directly on TIMOREX GOLD®, STK’s botanical-based bio fungicide, which Argentinean and other farmers throughout Latin America have been using with great success for many years on about 15 different crops.
