Water it in, Wipes em out™
SNS-209™ provides a barrier for plants to protect them against damaging insects. The SNS-209™ barrier is harmless to the plant but distasteful to Aphids, Mites and other insects.
SNS-209™ Systemic Insect Control is made up of 100% pure botanical extracts that are highly water soluble. The botanical extracts are all food grade GRAS (generally recognized as safe) materials.
SNS-209™ Systemic Insect Control is exempt from EPA registration under minimum risk pesticide exempted under FIFRA section 25(b) and has a zero restricted entry interval (REI) = 0.
How it Works:
Spider mites, White flies, Nematodes, Scales and other insects destroy plant cells by sucking out their fluids or chewing up the cell walls. SNS-209™’s unique formula works by allowing the plant to uptake a small amount of rosmaric acid from the rosemary plant. As the plant distributes the rosmaric acid throughout its cell walls, a barrier is soon constructed. When an insect starts to suck or chew on the plant it comes in contact with the rosmaric acid and causes the insect to stop eating and move on.
The first advantage is long term control. A foliar application of an insecticide is constantly exposed to the elements. Rainfall, irrigation and sunlight all play a part in the dilution of the insecticide. A systemic product is protected by the elements because it remains inside the plant’s leaves, stems or blades.
The second advantage of systemic insecticides over conventional insecticides is that the entire plant is protected from attack by insects, grubs, mites. Root systems, stems and leaf portions of the plant all contain a small amount of SNS-209™, not just the leaf surface.
The third advantage drip irrigation maybe used which reduces overall pesticide amount needed and reduces costs. SNS-209™ maybe applied with other fertilizers, fungicides and other pesticides but please perform a jar test for compatability.
SNS 209 AG is available in bulk sizes up to 250 gallon tote.
At $3.88 per acre applied through drip irrigation with frequencies of application at approximately 5 consecutive times, that’s $19.40 an acre for an organic and natural control of pests and insects.
Directions for Use: Shake Well Before Use
Soil Drench – Plant Site Use For All Plants & Turf (Roots), Coverage = 1 gallon of mixed solution to 5 gallon potted plant or 115 square feet. Mix 1/2 Tablespoon (8 mL) of concentrate to 1 gallon (3.79L) of water.
Row Crops Chemigation: 2-6 quarts per acre. Mix well. Gently feed SNS-209tm solution directly onto the root area of the plants every time you water or fertilize for a minimum 5 consecutive waterings (may be added to reservoir) or until infestation reduces. Repeat after two weeks or if infestation returns. Thoroughly drench to contact as much of the root area as possible. It takes about 1-2 weeks for SNS 209tm to start working dependent on temperature and should continue to work for up to 3 weeks.
Foliar Spray – Plant Site Use For All Plants & Turf (Leaves (Foliage), Stems, Stalk, Fruit and around Flowers), Coverage = 1 gallon of mixed solution will cover approximately 550 square feet , No restricted entry interval (REI)=0. Mix 2 Tablespoon (32 mL) of concentrate to 1 gallon (3.79L) of water. Spray every 3-4 days for 21 days. It takes about 1-2 weeks to start working and will continue to work for up to 3 weeks. Reapply every 14-28 days as needed. Mixed solution may be stored for up to two weeks or used immediately. For best results use warm (70 degree) Distilled or “Chlorine Free” Water.
