Also helps to control mildew and can be used any time of the year.

Plant stimulant foliar feed for strong healthy growth. Helps prevent chlorosis and improves leaf colour and vigour. Acts as a plant wash giving a cleaner and shiny appearance on leaves, flowers and fruit.

Biodegradable and non-toxic. No harvest interval required.

Has a physical mode of action and therefore pests will not become resistant.

It is economical and easy to use.

The garden formulation is available in 250 ml and 500ml bottles and is mixed at the rate of 10ml of SB Invigorator to 1 litre of water

 

 

What Does it Contain?

The garden formulation of SB Plant Invigorator contains: Foliar Lattice, Linear Sulphanate, 0.074% w/w Iron Chelate (Fe), 1.914% w/w Nitrogen (N) and other natural products. As it works by physical means it is exempt from UK Pesticide Regulations.

 

How Does it Work?

There is no residual activity, therefore the spray needs to come into contact with the pest. Therefore repeat applications are required as the pests emerge. It works by physical means and sticky action and the following has been observed:

 

- Adult whitefly stick by the wings to any surface they make contact with.

- Aphids (greenfly and blackfly), young juvenile whitefly and spider mites when hit directly are smothered and trapped by wetness and in effect drown.

- On mealybug an initial application removed the protective wax and a second application killed them

 

How Often to Spray?

Weekly are recommended to ensure plants stay healthy and free of pests. Although this may seem a lot remember this will not only protect the plants from a wide range of pests and powdery mildew but also feed them through the leaves.

 

If there is a heavy infestation of pests on the plants then apply at 2-3 day intervals until the pests are under control when application can be reduced to once a week. This ensures that all stages of the pests from eggs to the adults are kept under control.

 

Weekly application can effectively prevent powdery mildew from infesting plants as well as controlling what is already there.

Invigorator has been applied to a wide range of plant species and varieties without andy negative effects. They include the following plant families:

Although SB Plant Invigorator has been applied to a wide range of plants it is recommended that when it is used for the first time a small area of plant or crop is tested first.

 

As with any spray it is important not to spray when the sunlight is strong as this can cause scorch. Even water can cause scorch as droplets can remain on leaves and buds. The drops act in a simlar way to glass and rays of sun which can result in scorch of material below the glass.

 

Does SB Plant Invigorator Affect Beneficial Insects?

It is important to keep beneficial insects as these help to keep control of plant pests. Many of these are naturally occurring but can also be introduced as part of an integrated pest management programme.

SB Plant Invigorator is suitable for use alongside beneficial insects as the following has been found:

 

Parasitic wasps developing within aphid (greenfly and blackfly) and whitfly mummies do not appear to be afected.

 

Soil dwelling predatory mites such as Hypoaspis do not appear to be affected. Leaf predatory mites, Amblyseius and are Phytoseiulus are affected if there are too many applications.

 

Larger robust predators such as hoverflies, lacewing larvae, ladybirds and mirid bugs appear unaffected. Bumble bees also appear unaffected.

 

Invigorator is a trade mark of Stan Brouard Ltd.
