US approval for Stockton's Timorex Gold

The Israeli company, Stockton, confirms that it has received US EPA approval for its "flagship" biofungicide, Timorex Gold, which is based on tea tree (Melaleuca alternifolia) oil. The Agency proposed the registration last month for use on a range of horticultural and agricultural crops (Agrow No 694, p 31). Stockton subsequently indicated that it would gain tolerance exemptions for "many" crops despite ambiguous wording in the proposed approval decision (Agrow No 695, p 25). Timorex Gold can be used in rotations or tank mixes to improve the efficacy of IPM programmes, the company points out. Timorex Gold is registered in more than 25 countries, including most countries in Central and South America, Australia, the Philippines, Serbia and Canada.
