Stockton launches Timorex Gold in Philippines

Israeli biopesticide company Stockton has launched its Melaleuca alternifolia extract-based biofungicide, Timorex Gold, in the Philippines for use on bananas to control black sigatoka (Mycosphaerella fijiensis). The product received approval in June. It can be used in conventional and organic production of bananas. The company claims it to be the first registered organic fungicide in the country. “Timorex Gold has demonstrated exceptional curative performance of the M fijiensis in stages four and five, in the most intense disease pressure conditions,” says Stockton chief scientist Professor Moshe Reuveni. Timorex Gold is adopted for commercial use in the key banana growing countries such as Belize, Colombia, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Guatemala, India, Korea, Mexico, Nicaragua and the Philippines.
