STK REGEV ‘Hybrid’ Fungicide Registered in the Philippines
STK bio-ag technologies, the innovative Israel–based crop protection and aquaculture company, has announced that its ‘hybrid’ fungicide REGEV is now registered in the Philippines for use on rice to prevent sheath blight and rice blast and for bananas against black sigatoka.
STK REGEV is the world’s first hybrid fungicide, and is currently used successfully in many countries and several regions of the world, with plans for global expansion in the future.
STK REGEV is a ready to use fungicide, used exactly as other fungicides, but with the added benefits of reduced chemical residues and much better resistance management due to its highly complex formulation of Tea Tree Oil and Difenoconazole. This easy to use fungicide serves as a ‘bridge,’ enabling farmers who have never used any biological product to try one, without having to mix, rotate or do anything differently, thereby expanding the use of biologicals products for sustainable agriculture.
Field test data has shown STK REGEV performs as well or better than leading chemical fungicides. But with REGEV, farmers will now realize all the benefits of lower chemical load, reduced chemical residues and having a new tool for resistance management.
According to STK Country Manager for the Philippines Arturo Alejan Jr., “I am happy to have another effective and sustainable tool to help growers in the Philippines. Many have experienced great success with STK’s TIMOREX GOLD, the botanical-based biofungicide. Now hundreds of growers who had never tried any biological product can use REGEV and enjoy the benefits of biologics in the same easy way they use their their current chemical pesticides.”
