SUSTAINABLE AG

The Principle of Sustainability

Sustainability presumes that the available natural resources on our planet are finite. As such, they must be used conservatively and wisely in order to avoid their depletion and maintain their long-term renewal and availability.

Sustainability focuses on meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet theirs. Sustainable practices support the delicate balance and tradeoffs between ensuring the continuity of ecological ecosystems, meeting human needs, and supporting economic vitality.

The core challenge of sustainable agriculture is to produce more with less, while preserving and enhancing the livelihoods of small-scale and family farmers, and ensuring access to food by the most vulnerable.

Sustainable Fields Forever

 Maintaining a Continuous Food Supply

It’s a daunting prospect: 9.7 billion people to feed by 2050. Global demand for food is rapidly escalating while the resources available for its production continue to diminish. In parallel, the drive for reduced synthetic chemicals in harvested crops has never been greater; regulatory standards for cleaner and safer food are becoming increasingly strict, reflecting widespread grass roots awareness by consumers everywhere.

There is a clear need to strike a sustainable balance between people, planet and prosperity.

New Generation of Biopesticides

Sustainable Agriculture and Biologic Solutions

 Biologic-based solutions (biopesticides) are naturally-occurring products derived from materials such as plants, bacteria, viruses, and minerals that demonstrate an ability to naturally fight a variety of diseases prevalent in agriculture.

Biologic formulations generally:

  • Are not petroleum based
  • Do not generate greenhouse gasses
  • Are less toxic to people and the environment
  • Fit into the IPM (Integrated Pest Management) approach and sustainable production models
  • Promote better quality and higher yield in crops

Hybrid solutions

Helping Farmers Transition to Sustainable Ag

Synthetic inputs will continue to be a mainstay in ensuring the perpetuity of the food chain for the foreseeable future. The crop protection industry has made impressive strides in reducing the environmental risks associated with its products.  In addition to the efforts made by agrochemical companies to produce solutions with lower impact, the introduction of hybrid formulations in parallel will go a long way in helping growers of all sizes to actively pursue sustainable practices in their everyday operations.

Hybrid solutions combine biologic-based elements with synthetics. They positively affect parameters such as efficacy, cost, lower MRL, reduced chemical load and improved yield and quality. Hybrids help strike a balance between what is taken out of the soil and what is returned to it.

STK and Sustainable Agriculture

STK is committed to helping growers pursue the practices of sustainable agriculture by developing smarter solutions for enabling the continuity of farming. Our innovative botanical-based inputs and hybrid products help increase yield and nutrition, while mitigating the potential damage of synthetic chemical residue to plant, people and our planet.

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
