REGEV Hybrid Fungicide Awarded ‘Overall BioAgriculture Solution of the Year’
STK Bio-Ag Technologies, a pioneer in the development and marketing of botanical based and hybrid solutions for crop protection, has received the Overall BioAgriculture Solution of the Year Award for its first-ever ‘hybrid’ fungicide, REGEV, from the 3rd Annual BioTech Breakthrough Awards program.
According to the organizers, “The mission of the annual BioTech Breakthrough Awards program is to honor excellence and recognize the creativity, hard work and success of companies, technologies and products within the field of biotechnology.”
The judges used the following criteria in selecting REGEV ‘hybrid’ fungicide for this very special Overall BioAgriculture Solution of the Year Award: Innovation, Performance, Functionality, Ease of Use, Value and Impact and Manageability.
According to STK CEO Arye Tenenbaum, “The STK team is proud to have REGEV ‘hybrid’ fungicide selected as the Overall BioAgriculture Solution of the Year by the judges of the BioTech Breakthrough Awards. STK is achieving its mission of providing the best possible solutions for sustainable agriculture and food protection throughout the value chain, from field to fork.”
STK Bio-Ag Technologies Chief Scientist, Professor Moshe Reuveni declared, “REGEV hybrid fungicide’s multiple modes of action greatly enhance resistance management, resulting in much higher yields. REGEV is a marriage of chemistry and biology, and is the first product of its kind … a hybrid solution that delivers effective and sustainable disease control for a wide variety of fruits, vegetables, row crops and broad acre crops. It serves as an easy ‘bridge’ for most growers who have never tried any product having biological content. That’s because REGEV is used the same way as the grower’s current synthetic chemical pesticide… no mixing …no having to learn new biology … nothing different in applying or storing.”
STK’s Global VP Sales Yair Nativ added, “With REGEV, the grower substantially reduces chemical residues on produce significantly, making the grower’s products more exportable to countries, regions and food chains having strict chemical residue limits (MRL’s). REGEV also reduces any harmful effects to farmers, consumers and on the environment, enabling growers in all sectors and geographies to reduce their ecological footprint and thrive economically. REGEV is a preventive, double kick-back curative and anti-sporulant. REGEV is BM01: New frac group for Tea Tree Oil (label pending).”
Shay Shaanan, STK VP R&D and Business Development added, “REGEV is successfully used by growers throughout the USA, Latin America, East Asia, and Israel. Based upon REGEV’s great efficacy and commercial success, STK is developing new hybrid products which we believe they will be the future of sustainable agriculture.”
