Fungone is a protected preventive foliar spray that decreases pathogen problems on leaves while increasing the plant’s resistance to future attacks. It helps prevent fungal, bacterial and viral problems by cleaning the leaf and creating conditions that do not favor pathogen development. It prevents future infections by producing a preventive shield over leaves. It is extremely useful for outdoor applications.
Why use Fungone?
How to use Fungone
Fungone is a ready to use Aptus product. It must be sprayed directly on the plant. For larger volumes, Fungone-concentrate can be used because 1 L is enough to make 5 L ready to use spray solution. Spray Fungone ready-to-use or 5 times diluted Fungone-concentrate, directly on the plant.
Always ensure that the lights are off during spraying and that proper protection gear is used consisting of a mask and goggles. Fungone is not toxic and causes no residue in the plant.
- 3% food grade H202
- Ag (colloidal silver)
- Food grade adjuvant
How Fungone works
Fungone uses atomair oxygen (O3) to oxidize bacteria and fungi. Pathogens are unable to develop resistance to oxidization. Oxidation by O3 occurs naturally in nature and artificially in some greenhouses to control bacteria and pests.
The remaining elements of the spray produce natural oxygen and clean water. Fungone contains a food grade adjuvant that helps it stick and spread evenly on the plant surface for a long lasting effect.
Tips from successful growers
- Spray Fungone when the lights are off. Leaves burn quickly when sprayed with the lights on. The droplets of the spray act as prisms, amplifying the light intensity
- Fungone is ready-to-use and can be applied directly as a foliar treatment or dilute with water for treating sensitive plants (1 part Fungone to 4 parts pure water). Once diluted, use the mixture immediately
- Use weekly as a preventive measure up to the last week before harvest
