June 29, 2012 – Tomato crops suffer from a broad range of pathogenic fungi and bacteria, which cause plant diseases and affect production. Timorex Gold is distinguished from other fungicides by providing a solution to a large range of diseases that are threats to the agriculture production.
In Mexico, Timorex Gold has an excellent effect on tomato powdery mildew (Leveillula taurica, Erysiphe lycopersicum) and early blight (Alternaria solani). In other parts of the world, Timorex Gold has proven to be an efficient tool against various fungi diseases, such as: leaf mold (Cladosporium fulvum), gray spot (Stemphylium lycopersici) and gray mold (Botrytis cinerea). Furthermore, Timorex Gold has also had excellent results when used against bacterial diseases in young plants, such as the bacterial spot (Xanthomonas campestri) and bacterial canker (Clavibacter michiganensis).
Mexico is known to be one of the fastest growing leaders in the exportation of fruits and vegetables, among them tomatoes. Due to the demands in food security and the quality required of the Mexican products, the growers have to apply a strict plan to protect plants to guarantee that they comply with import requirements of the United States, Europe and some Asian countries such as Japan, where the Mexican products are sold.
Timorex Gold as a natural product presents a true alternative for the producers of tomatoes and of other crops, by controlling diseases caused by plant pathogenic fungi and bacteria. Timorex Gold is highly efficient and an effective tool for resistance management.
Timorex Gold has proven to be an alternative in reducing fungicides that are of high risk to the environment and to laborers. Timorex Gold has been certified by major organic associations, leaves no residues, does not harm beneficial insects and is a totally secure product for the applicator and for other exposed workers.
