GENERAL PRODUCT INFORMATION
The effective general purpose micro biocide and algaecide. No need to use those harsh and damaging bleaches or chlorine based products any more.
PHYTOCLEAN© IS A REVOLUTIONARY NEW DISINFECTANT CLEANER and SANITISER, SPECIALLY FORMULATED FOR THE CONTROL OF Phytophthora Cinnamomi, and similar organisms, in the agriculture, horticultural, plantation, construction and mining industries.
Phytophthora Cinnamomi is a severe soil borne plant pathogen which attacks a wide range of plant species. It is known to cause dieback and death of susceptible plants in native forests, plantations, farms, nurseries, home gardens and food production. It can be a severe threat to plant producers to both the survival of seedlings and to the possibility of contamination of stock passing out of the nursery and into gardens, farms and forests.
A major source of the spread of the disease is via soil adhering to vehicles, machinery and tools and footwear for which adequate hygiene and washdown procedures have not been taken.
With the growing pressure on nurseries to raise their hygiene standards, it has become necessary to produce effective and safer products to kill Fungi and pathogens such as Phytophthora cinnamomi.
Previously, bleaches, sodium hypochlorite, and phenolic based products have been recommended, but have been found to be far less effective and more hazardous than quat based products. In independent testing of four quat based products, Phytoclean was found to be the most effective in inhibiting growth of and killing the fungus when in contact with the chemical. Phytoclean has been used extensively in the Forestry and Agricultural industries in Australia now for 10 years.
