Tackling Panama disease discussed at International Acorbat meeting

The 20th International Acorbat Meeting took place this year at the Ceará Events Centre in Fortaleza, Brazil, from 9 to 13 September 2013. It differed to previous editions in that it was organised alongside Agrofruta 2013.

At the meeting, a professor from the State University of São Paulo (UNESP), PhD. Wilson da Silva Morales, presented a conference with the title “Efficiency of resistance inductors in the control of the Panama Disease in “Prata” bananas (Musa AAB) (PE020)”. The PhD. Da Silva is also a researcher of the São Paulo Agency of Agri-Business Techology (APTA), based in Ribeiro Valley, in São Paulo, Brazil.

The highlight of the presentation were the excellent results achieved with Timorex Gold in tackling the aforementioned disease, which according to da Silva were very similar to those obtained previously when tested against Black Sigatoka. The professor’s objectivity and professionalism attracted a massive crowd at STK’s stand, who were eager to delve deeper into the advantages of Timorex Gold for a responsible and long-term sustainable agriculture.

Due to the interest generated and given the fact that many of the stand’s visitors did not have the chance to attend the professor’s lecture, STK Group was invited, as part of Acorbat’s organisers, to give a technical lecture on the latest technology and knowledge for the development of a profitable and environmentally-friendly agriculture. The presentation was enhanced by the presence of PhD. Da Silva, who once again shared his experience with the attendees and insisted on the importance of using products like Timorex Gold in modern agriculture.
