The Stockton Group’s Timorex Gold has been approved in Chile for the use in grapes and sugar beets. Timorex Gold is a proprietary multi-component biofungicide based on a plant extract of the Melaleuca alternifolia registered in over 19 countries, and now in Chile.
Timorex Gold may be used for the control of powdery mildew caused by Erysiphe necator in a spray programs of organic and IPM vineyards. Powdery mildew or oidium (Erysiphe necator) is a widespread and persistent fungal disease of grapes. This fungus infects leaves, stems and fruit, usually beginning of the season. If uncontrolled, it spreads steadily through the vineyard causing serious disease and crop losses on susceptible varieties. It is a common and widespread disease of grapevines in Chile.
Timorex Gold may be applied along the growing season of the crop and will provide satisfactory control of the disease on both cluster and leaves. It leaves no residues, reduces the pesticide load and is an effective tool in resistance management.
"We’re please we can now offer Timorex Gold in Chile,” pointed out Ziv Tirosh, CEO of the Stockton Group. “We believe that we are enhancing our commitment to introduce integrated eco-friendly solutions to our customers by meeting the evolving needs of growers with a unique natural solution for their vineyard production that is highly effective for their crops.”
