15th May 2019
STK bio-ag technologies, the innovative Israeli leader in botanical sustainable crop protection, is partnering with Agricenter, a subsidiary of AMVAC Netherlands, to be the exclusive distributor of STK products in Central America.
Effective immediately, Agricenter will assume the marketing and sales responsibily for STK products in Central America, including the countries of Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Panama and Belize. Currently registered STK products in the Central American region include TIMOREX GOLD and REGEV, providing broad spectrum disease control in such crops as bananas, rice, coffee, vegetables, cocoa, tobacco, citrus, melons, peanuts and pineapple.
TIMOREX GOLD is the world’s leading botanical-based biofungicide, used in nearly 40 countries and currently approved for use throughout Central America for a wide range of uses. REGEV is the first ‘hybrid’ pre-mixed combination of a botanical-based biopesticide with a chemical pesticide. Comprised of Tee Tree Oil (TTO) and Difenoconazole, REGEV is already used in numerous countries and has proven effective on a wide range of horticultural and row crops.
CEO Arye Tennebaum of STK declared, “I am delighted to announce this partnership with Agricenter. STK products have a long history of success throughout Central America. To achieve the next level of distribution success in this region we have selected the top distributor in the region, with the best team of highly knowledgeable and dedicated professionals to help fruit and vegetable growers with STK’s cutting edge technologies for plant health and yield growth.”
The General Manager of Agricenter, Gerardo Suárez, also commented, stating,“ Agricenter is very excited about this opportunity. The addition of TIMOREX GOLD and REGEV to the existing strong Agricenter brand family will allow Agricenter to offer an even wider range of disease control options. Agricenter will be able to effectively deliver STK’s innovative biological and ‘hybrid’ solutions to growers all across Central America. We know these are outstanding products and we’re very proud to have been selected to represent them throughout Central America.”
