What is HERFOMYC? It is a Biological Crop Care product for agriculture, horticulture, gardens and parks, in herbaceous crops: it stimulates and strengthens the plants and makes them less susceptible to pests and diseases.
Why HERFOMYC? Herfomyc can be used on crops where there has been a problem with moulds or fungi in the past, such as:
- Blight (Phytophtera)
- Leaf Spot Disease
- Powdery mildew
- Downy mildew
- Black Spot
- Red Board
Composition: HERFOMYC is a highly concentrated composition of specific herbal concentrates, based on water.
Mode of action: The ingredients have an indirect effect on pests and diseases. Foliar fungi will be inhibited in their development as the plants develop an increased resistance and vitality.
HERFOMYC is absorbed by the leaves and the soil. Due to the root stimulating and nutritional ingredients roots, leaves and soil develop an increased resistance.
Application: We recommend to apply the product as a preventative, especially when there is a history of fungal disease. Even when damage and deterioration is detected, the product can, in consultation with your advisor, still be successfully applied.
For best results HERFOMYC liquid should be watered/sprayed in dry, overcast weather conditions. Do not apply in bright sunshine. Repeat application necessary after approximately 14 days.
Application Rate: 100ml HERFOMYC (L) per 5 ltr of water will cover 100m2. 1 litre diluted with 50litres water will cover 1000m2
