The California Department of Pesticide Regulation has recently granted registration approval for TIMOREX ACT fungicide from Summit Agro USA. This OMRI-listed product delivers advanced natural plant disease control in multiple fruit and vegetable crops.
This fungicide is based on a botanical extract of the tea tree plant. A purely organic formulation, TIMOREX ACT is highly effective against a broad spectrum of broad spectrum of plant diseases in a variety of fruit and vegetable crops, including powdery mildew, early blight, Botrytis and more.
TIMOREX ACT is a FRAC Code 46 fungicide containing the active ingredient tea tree oil.
“TIMOREX ACT has unique activity against both fungal and bacterial plant pathogens.” explained Eric Tedford, Summit Agro field R&D manager. “Having activity against bacterial diseases as well as fungal diseases is a huge benefit to growers as both pathogens can greatly limit yield and quality and there are not many products available to growers for control of bacterial diseases.”
Another advantage of the product is how friendly it is to pollinators and other beneficial insects. This fact was recently endorsed by the Xerces Society for Invertebrate Conservation, which issued a report on organic pesticides and toxicity to pollinators. TIMOREX ACT was among the few fungicides it rated as having the lowest impact.
For use in both curative and preventative control programs, there are no residues. This means no MRL. Growers of fruit and vegetable crops will find that this new fungicide easily fits into their sustainable and IPM practices.
