Protect your crops from sunburn and heat stress and allow usable light through while blocking harmful infrared (IR) and ultraviolet (UV) light.
Purebase SHADE ADVANTAGE (WP) natural mineral plant protectant reduces sunburn damage to plant tissue (including fruits and nuts) exposed to UV radiation. The protection is achieved through the reflection and diffusion of ultraviolet light and dissipation of heat, which reduces the stress on most plants. Purebase SHADE ADVANTAGE(WP) is made up of the natural and organic mineral Kaolin, which is extracted, processed, milled, heat-treated and packaged for applying to Organic and Non-Organic agricultural crops.
According to Title 7 U.S.C. § 136 and Title 40 C.F.R. § 152.3 the term “pesticide” is defined as “a substance or mixture of substances intended for preventing, destroying, repelling, or mitigating any pest or intended for use as a plant regulator, defoliant, or desiccant.” Purebase SHADE ADVANTAGE (WP) is intended for use as a natural mineral plant protectant that reduces sunburn damage. Shade Advantage is not a pesticide.
