How It Works
High moisture levels in soils encourage the development of mildew, molds, fungus gnats, shore flies and other pests. Fungus gnats will feed on fungi and decaying organic material in the soil. If a fungal food source is not readily available, fungus gnats may feed directly on plants. During the propagation of cuttings, fungus gnats may feed upon the callus. This may slow down or completely inhibit rooting. They can also damage the roots as they feed upon seedlings and potted plants. On many thick and succulent stemmed plants, larvae may tunnel into stems and cause plants to wilt and die. Larval feeding upon young roots encourages the development of root and stem rots such as Pythium. When this occurs, plants will be stunted with reduced growth and leaf drop. Shore flies feed upon algae and do not directly feed upon plants. However, their frass (droppings) on plants, in addition to their presence, may be objectionable to customers and may carry other diseases. SNS-203™ Concentrated Natural Pesticide Soil Drench active ingredients, attack fungus and algae and cause the pests to dehydrate their body fluids and dry up.
Our Product has been tested in our lab on delicate new growth, clones, cuttings, tomatoes, roses and other plants.
The first advantage of SNS 203 is its ability to be used as both a foliar spray and as a dripped irrigated product to affect multiple pest varieties and molds, mildews and bacteria.
The second advantage as a dripped irrigation product SNS 203 is able to affect molds that feed soil borne insects as well as the eggs that may be dormant. As a dripped irrigation product SNS 203 is protected by the elements to remain active for much longer than ordinary topical sprays.
The third advantage due to the natural nature of SNS 203, there is no need for delayed entry which may reduce labor costs and help bring your harvest to market sooner. SNS-203™ maybe applied with other fertilizers, fungicides and other pesticides but please perform a jar test for compatibility.
SNS 203 AG is available in bulk sizes up to 250 gallon tote.
At $7.75 per acre applied through drip irrigation with frequencies of application at approximately 2 consecutive times, that’s $15.50 an acre for natural control of pests and molds.
