Timorex Gold® brings to the Brazilian growers an environmentally responsible and effective solution for protecting against fungal and bacterial diseases,” said Marcelo Peres, General Manager of Stockton Brazil. “We believe Timorex Gold® expands growers’ options and will proceed to help them remain competitive in the world marketplace of trade.”
