STK REGEV® ‘Hybrid’ Fungicide Registered in Chile
18th May 2020
STK bio-ag technologies, the innovative Israeli crop protection and aquaculture company, is announcing that its ‘hybrid’ fungicide REGEV® is now registered in Chile for the control of Powdery Mildew in tomatoes and Apple scab in pome fruits. Label extension has also been submitted for gray mold, powdery mildew in grapes, brown rot and sour rot in stone fruits and Alternaria in cherries.
STK REGEV® is the world’s first ‘hybrid’ fungicide, and is currently used successfully in many countries and several regions of the world, with plans for US rollout this year, and global expansion in the future.
STK REGEV is a ready to use ‘pre-mix’ fungicide, used exactly as conventional 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 fungicide serves as a ‘bridge,’ providing farmers an easy to use crop protection solution, thereby expanding the use of biologicals products for sustainable agriculture.
Field test data has shown STK REGEV performs as well or better than leading chemical fungicides… but with REGEV, farmers will now realize all the benefits of lower chemical load, reduced chemical residues while having a new tool for resistance management.
According to STK Country Manager for Chile, Alvaro Arroyo, “in addition to be a complement to the portfolio of STK in Chile, REGEV will be a game-changer for Chilean growers, making their crops more environmentally-friendly and more exportable. Many have experienced great success with STK’s TIMOREX GOLD®, the botanical-based biofungicide. Now hundreds of tomato, apple, and soon grape and stone fruits growers, who are moving to healthier production, will be able to use REGEV and enjoy the benefits of biologics in the same easy way they use their current chemical pesticides.”
