Strong and healthy plants are best able to fight off disease and this innovative product provides what they need to get and stay healthy. Arber Bio Protectant uses an active ingredient that had been developed for use in large-scale agriculture and has adapted it for use by home growers. This ingredient, an extract of the Giant Knotwood plant (Reynoutria sachalinensis), offers protection without harsh or toxic ingredients.
When this product is applied to a plant, the plant produces elevated levels of specific proteins and other compounds like phytoalexins, cell wall strengtheners, antioxidants, PR proteins and phenolics that serve as fungal and bacterial growth inhibitors This mode of action, called induced systemic resistance, uses Arber Bio Protectant as a catalyst for the plant to protect itself.
- Can be applied up to and on the day of harvest.
- Safe for beneficial insects, bees, birds, pets and people.
- Significantly reduces the possibility of resistance.
- Use on vegetables, fruits, berries, houseplants, tree nuts, ornamental plants, trees, shrubs, roses and other flowers, bedding plants, hemp, foliage and tropical plants.
