Chile Renews Registration for TIMOREX GOLD® and Expands Uses to Additional Fruits and Vegetables Through 2022


New uses for Stone Fruits (peaches, nectarines, cherries, plums),
adding Raspberries, Blackberries, Kiwi and Onions

STK bio-ag technologies, the innovative Israel–based leader in bio-ag
technology for sustainable crop protection and aquaculture, is
announcing the country of Chile has reauthorized the use of its TIMOREX
GOLD® botanical-based biofungicide through the year 2022, and has
extended its use to additional crops.

TIMOREX GOLD® has been used throughout Chile since 2012, but is now
authorized for Stone Fruits (apricots, peaches, nectarines, cherries,
plums) to control a variety of diseases, including Pudricion parda (Monilia
), Oidium (Sphaerotheca pannosa vs persicae), and
Tizon de la flor (Pseudomona Syringae pv persicae). Chile has
also authorized its use on additional crops, including Raspberries,
Blackberries and Kiwis to control Pudrición Gris (Botrytis cinera),
and Onions to prevent Foliar and Stern Blight (Peronospora destructor
and Stemphylium vesicarium).

According to STK CEO Guy Elitzur, "TIMOREX GOLD® is providing Chilean
growers with a residue-free, botanical-based method for successful
resistance management, increased yield and quality, and more competitive
crops globally. This is why the Chilean Ministry of Agriculture has
authorized the extension and expansion of its use. Local growers
interested in trying TIMOREX GOLD® may contact STK Chile directly by
