STK Bio-ag technologies and BASF have signed a three-year collaboration agreement to expand the distribution of Timorex Gold in Brazil.
According to an announcement, STK will grant BASF exclusive rights to market and sell the biological fungicide bactericide in the country.
Timorex Gold, a well-established product for disease control and stimulating natural plant defences, will be available for use on 15 crops including grapes, bananas and tomatoes.
“We are pleased about this new partnership with STK," said Rodrigo Pifano, specialty crops marketing manager at BASF Brazil. "It will allow us to provide growers with more tools, helping them to increase the productivity and quality of their crops. This effective product will bring additional value to our customers who face increasing challenges.”
Timorex Gold supports growers in more than 30 countries globally to increase profitability through improved quality, higher yield potential and resistance management support.
A multi-targeted solution based on terpenes from tea tree oil, Timorex Gold is effective against a broad range of diseases including black/yellow sigatoka, powdery mildew, rhizopus, botrytis, early blight, and cladosporium.
“We are pleased to be collaborating with BASF on the expanded distribution of Timorex Gold® throughout Brazil," added STK Brazil country manager Marcelo Peres.
