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.
- Surround WP is applied as a water-based slurry and needs to be applied before pests arrive. Must be mixed well before application. Sprayer with continuous agitation is recommended. See label for full instructions on mixing. Fruit needs to be washed prior to sale.
- Use 50 lb/acre or .5 lb/gallon water. Reapplication is required every 7-21 days.
- Use on trees such as apples, pears, peaches, citrus, berries and some field crops.
- Labeled for use with stink bugs, cutworms, Japanese beetles, leafrollers, mites, thrips, codling moth, psylla, flea beetles, leaf hoppers, cicadas, Gypsy moth, June beetle, grasshoppers, Mormon cricket, and sharpshooters.
