Currently used on rice, with registration anticipated on coffee, bananas, roses, Solanaceas (potatoes, tomatoes, peppers) in September
STK bio-ag technologies, the innovative Israel–based leader in bio-ag technology for sustainable crop protection and aquaculture, is announcing that its ‘hybrid’ fungicide REGEV® is now registered in Colombia for use on rice crops, with registrations anticipated in September on coffee, bananas, roses, and the Solanaceas family of crops, which include potatoes, tomatoes and peppers.
STK REGEV® is the world’s first foliar ‘hybrid’ fungicide, and is currently used successfully in eight countries in various regions of the world, with plans for global expansion in 2019.
STK REGEV® is a ‘pre-mix, used exactly the same way as other fungicides, but with the added benefits of lowering chemical residues and much better resistance management due to its highly complex formulation of Tea Tree Oil and Difenoconazole. This pre-mix serves as a ‘bridge’, enabling growers who have never used any biological product to try one, without having to mix, rotate or do anything differently, thereby expanding the world’s use of biologicals for sustainable agriculture.
According to STK CEO Guy Elitzur, “STK Colombia is selling REGEV directly, so growers wishing to try it may contact our Colombia Country Manager at email@example.com. REGEV® is already being distributed throughout Colombia, including Tolima, Casanare, Meta, Huila and Santandar del Norte. We are also happy to answer questions on TIMOREX GOLD®, STK’s botanical-based biofungicide, which Colombian and growers throughout all of Latin America have been using with great success for many years on a wide variety of fruits and vegetables.”
