Mexico approves Stockton’s Timorex Gold
Mexico has granted Israeli biopesticide company Stockton approval for its Melaleuca alternifolia extract-based biofungicide, Timorex Gold. The product is authorised for use on coffee. The multiple modes of action provide control of coffee rust (Hemileia vastatrix) or leaf spot (Mycena citricolor), among others during the pre- and post-flowering period. The approval comes on the heels its registration South Korea on various fruits and vegetables, and Macedonia on tomatoes, potatoes and grapevines. The product is authorised in 26 countries, including neighbouring Central American markets on coffee, the company notes. Timorex Gold stimulates the growth of new shoots and leaves, induces the formation of new tissue, strengthens photosynthetic capacity, and reduces stress and chemical load, it adds.
