Pest & Disease Suppression and Plant Health Products
Building health and balance in the soil and in plants will go a long way towards limiting pest and disease issues. Similarly, the presence of beneficial soil microbes and high Brix levels (carbohydrates) in the plant will also add a level of resilience to pest and disease attack. When first confronting a problem however, there is sometimes needs to be a way to provide some quick relief without applying strong and toxic chemicals into the environment unnecessarily. Of course, biological improvements will help in the longer term but it will take a while to build to sufficient numbers and strength to provide resistance against pest and disease. In these instances, we need to provide genuine deterring power, but at the same time minimising the injury to non-target and beneficial organisms (which is typical of most chemical interventions). To achieve this, we have developed a range of specialty products which can help deal with issues such as deterring insects and disease, salinity remediation and others.
