Derived from kaolin clay, a natural mineral, Surround WP forms a barrier film that acts as a broad spectrum crop protectant. It is labeled to control insect pests and disease, while protecting against sunburn and heat stress.
The kaolin clay coats the plants with a white powder film that acts in several ways to deter pests. It creates a hostile environment for insects and mites, the particles adhere to the insects acting as a strong irritant and the film creates a physical barrier to insects like psylla.
The material is porous, which allows the important process of gas exchange to occur. In addition, Surround WP helps prevent sunburn damage and can enhance fruit coloring.
