Organic Fungicide | EcoCarb is based on activated potassium bicarbonate and a proprietary surfactant system that increases the distribution of bicarbonate ions over plant surfaces.
Organic Fungicide | EcoCarb changes the pH on leaf surfaces to highly alkaline as well as creating a strong osmotic imbalance between microscopic organisms and the surrounding solution on the plant surface. This has the effect of severely disrupting spores and fungi cell walls.
Organic Fungicide | EcoCarb is registered for the control of Powdery mildew in Grapes and Roses with further research progressing in Cucurbits, Tomatoes, Cutflowers, and Strawberries.
Unlike some fungicides EcoCarb is safe to the key beneficial insects found in Vineyards and Vegetable crops.
Organic Fungicide | EcoCarb Technical Information
Organic Fungicide | EcoCarb is a contains pharmaceutical grade Activated Potassium Bicarbonate. EcoCarb is registered for the control of Powdery mildew in Grapes and Roses. Further trials are underway to prove its effective against Powdery mildew in other horticultural crops including Cucurbits (Cucumbers, Zuchinis), Solanacea (Tomatoes) and tree crops like Pome fruit.
Organic Fungicide | EcoCarb changes the pH on the leaf surface and disrupts the osmotic balance between the plant surface and the invading fungi. This produces an unfavorable environment for the germination of fungal spores, and damages the cell walls of fungal "structures".
Synertrol Horti Oil & Eco-Oil has been proven to enhance the results obtained with Organic Fungicide | EcoCarb.
Agricultural Applications of Organic Fungicide | EcoCarb
Floraculture / Gardens (ROSES)
4gm/L or 4kg/ha
Apply at first sign of disease. For best protection, apply every 7-10 days until conditions are no longer favorable for disease. Apply to run-off with Eco-Oil@ 2 ½ ml/L every second spray.
Apply on a regular basis every 14 days and every 7 days when disease pressure is high. Apply with Eco-Oil or Synertrol Horti Oil@ 250ml/100L. Thorough coverage is essential. Do not apply at less than 7 day intervals.
Start applying at first sign of disease. For best protection, repeat at one to two week intervals until conditions are no longer favorable for disease development. Shorten interval during rainy and humid weather when leaf surface remains wet for extended lengths of time.
