Spray - Even in the Heat of Day!

Using horticultural spray oils can be a problem for many nursery growers, pest control companies and home owners. The biggest concern is burning plants when using theses types of spray oils for insect control. 


Fortunately our PLP Natural Products liquid formula has an excellent plant safety record. Incorporated by many pest control companies as part of their natural programs that they are offering to their clients. The beauty of our products is that it can used at any time of day!

Our Plant Safety Test

 

  • The  photos below were taken in the Florida Keys. Using PLP Liquid Formula, the spray application temperature was 87 degrees F.


  •  Over the  next four days the heat index  was 106 F degrees with an air temperature  of 91 degrees F. These  conditions would normally burn a plant by the next day using standard  summer horticultural spray oils that are available at agricultural  chemical supply houses. 
  • Photos were taken to document that in the sub tropics, even sensitive plants like Plumbago, Hibiscus, Staghorn ferns,  Bougainvillea,  Orchids, Gardenias and fruit trees as Bananas, Citrus, Mango and Guava had no adverse effects. Even the blooms on these plant materials had no  signs of burning.   
  • Not  only was this group of plants treated with our liquid formulas but also  treated with a tank mix of a typical agricultural fertilizer solution.  This tank mix also contained a slow release liquid and a spreader, wetting, penetrable agent. 


Again, there was no signs of plant burn.
