OFGS N14 - Anti-mould and fungi Complex
Fungi are responsible for the greatest number of plant diseases, causing rotted
tissue, mouldy coatings or spots on flowers, foliage and stems. So-called fairy rings-ever-widening circles of yellowed grass that appear on lawns also are caused by fungi. Despite the menace they pose, there are
some good fungi, like the ones that transform garden debris into compost.
Fungi can invade and rot stem bases, crown of plants,
foliage, flowers or fruit. They can also cause blighted areas to appear, in which case plant parts wilt and die suddenly, but may only rot afterwards. Other symptoms of fungal diseases include:
Wilting; spots or
blotches on leaves, flowers, fruit or stems; galls (swelling); moldy or mildewed coating on plants parts; and blistered or curled leaves. Fungi also cause smuts, which are sooty masses on plant parts usually found
on cereals and grasses; scabby areas on fruit or foliage; rust, characterized by powdery blisters – generally red-brown or yellowish – on leaves; and cankers, which are lesions on twigs or bark. If you suspect a
fungal disease, use a hand lens to look at diseased plant parts very closely. You may be able to spot the fine, threadlike web (the hyphae) that makes up the body of most fungi or see clusters of tiny; spore bearing
stalks. Some fungi live only on material that is already dead (like the species involved in the composting process). Other fungi that live on dead material are capable of attacking living plants as well. They manage
this by releasing toxins that kill plant cells in advance of their spread through the plant. Other fungi survive equally well on living or dead material. They attack living plants during the growing season but dine
just as happily on dead stalks, leaves and roots. Many are attracted to bruised, damaged or stressed plant tissue.
DIRECTIONS FOR CONTROL
Foliar spray with penac N14 water soluble and
suitable for use in conventional liquid foliar and irrigation water applications. Dilute 80ml to 500l water. Anti –mould and fungi complex will control most fungi and mould problems. You may use this complex to
treat plant diseases cased by fungi, bacteria and viruses. These diseases causing organisms or pathogens create disease by using portions of the host plant as both home and food. Apply as needs to control moulds and
fungi. For fruit and vegetables spray again as fruit begins to form.
We recommend the addition of 0.1% Agricultural Wetting agent to the final mix. This will provide fast penetration.
Our recommendations are believed to be effective. Since the use of this
organic blend is beyond penac and it’s retailers control, no expressed or implied guarantee as to the effects of its use can be given, nor liability taken.
As with any essential oil product, keep in a cool place, out of
sunlight, and its closure tightly sealed. Store below 25°C
