KleenGrow Receives Fungicide Approval in Canada
Pace Solutions’ KleenGrow has received its designation as a fungicide from Health Canada.
KleenGrow is an environmentally-friendly, fourth generation quaternary ammonium used as an effective method of microbial and pest control.
“Proving KleenGrow’s efficacy against fungi and bacteria started 20 years ago,” said Robert MacMullin, technical plant consultant for Pace Solutions. “In that time, we’ve had several independent studies showing it to be highly effective against common fungi and algae found on plants, in soils, and on roots. These contaminations can seriously affect product quality, crop yield, and our grower’s livelihoods, so we’re very happy that Health Canada has made this determination.”
Listed under Pest Control Product (PCP) #13148, the fungicide designation confirms KleenGrow is effective against a host of invasive fungi and algae, such as pythium, phytophthora, powdery mildew, penicillium, fusarium, and botrytis and other similar contaminants.
When added to a regular cleaning and disinfection plan, a single application can protect hard surfaces for up to 14 days, depending on the disease severity. For irrigation systems, steady injection at extremely low rates is the best prevention, however, label rates can be applied every 7 to 14 days.
It also can be used in footbaths and as a tool wash
Once diluted, KleenGrow has a neutral pH of around 6.3, meaning it is noncorrosive to metal tools, racks, and benches. Its performance is not impaired by pH changes or exposure to light or temperatures used to maintain plant health.
