April 20, 2015  By Press release

April 20, 2015, Guelph, Ont – The Stockton Group, a plant extract-based crop protection innovator, recently announced the signing of a distribution agreement with Engage Agro. Under the agreement, Engage Agro will exclusively market and distribute Timorex Gold biofungicide in Canada for fruit, vegetable and specialty crops.

Timorex Gold will complement Engage Agro’s portfolio, providing their customers with a new tool for disease resistance management with a product that leaves no residues in the harvested produce. Growers in Canada will now benefit from Timorex Gold’s multi-mode of action, which boosts plants’ natural immune defenses to control fungal and bacterial diseases.

“This sets another important milestone for Timorex Gold,” said Ziv Tirosh, CEO of Stockton Group. “We are excited about our relationship with such a well-respected partner as Engage Agro to distribute and market our flagship biofungicide, Timorex Gold. Partnerships like this are key for Stockton as we rapidly expand into global markets.”


“Engage Agro is looking forward to helping growers discover the many benefits of using Timorex Gold biofungicide within their current management practices,” said Michael Brazeau, business development and supplier relations manager with Engage Agro.

According to the companies, Timorex Gold provides growers with an effective pest management tool that reduces stressful conditions occurring during the various stages of infectious diseases in crops, and reduces the chemical load resulting from the application of conventional products. It may be used in tank mixes, in program rotation and as a stand-alone product.

On August 2014, Timorex Gold was declared compliant and approved by ECOCERT Canada’s input approbation program against the National Standard of Canada on Organic Production Systems and Permitted Substances Lists (CAN/CGSB 32.310-2006 and CAN/CGSB 32.311-2006) as a Crop Protection Aid in organic production, allowed for pest control.
