mushroom farms and glasshouses. All active ingredients in this product are naturally occurring.
Available in 1 gallon to 275 gallon sizes.
MODES OF ACTION
|• Anti-fungal components give a wide range of activity
against many different types of mold spores. Natural oils
within Nutriclean engulf spores and render them nonviable.
• Cleaning agent and detergent action created by natural oils within NutriClean which clean surfaces thoroughly.
HOW IT WORKS
|• Penetrating action into surfaces is created by the use of
natural surfacants which help to reduce the surface tension
and allow the anti-fungal component to penetrate unwanted
spores and mycelium.
• Protective action created when NutriClean dries and leaves a film. This has a waterproofing action on surfaces such as concrete, brick, etc. and halts mold development.

Recent testing byTeagasc (Ireland) in 2009 included residue analysis of the active ingredient in 1st flush mushrooms after exposure to fogging recorded at 1.13 ppb (parts per billion).
PLANT PROTECTION REGISTRATION STATUS
Nutriclean is registered as a Plant Protection product in Ireland (PCS92396) and we are in the process of extending this to the rest of Europe. It can be used as a biocide (non-crop contact) in most other countries.
IMPLICATION OF PP STATUS
With this status, it means that our product is safe for use at all stages throughout the crop, as opposed to just at the end of the crop like current disinfectants.
This opens us big possibilities as growing rooms can be safely disinfected regularly (walls, floors, etc.) during the cropping period. Because spores and mycelial fragments that are produced or come into the growing rooms during picking, disinfection of surfaces can be done safely a number of times during the crop with NutriClean to keep on top of disease spread. The contaminant small, vapor and potential for tainting mushrooms preclude the use of phenolics and aldehydes during cropping.
WHERE CAN I USE IT?
Equipment & General Use
Outside Concrete Surfaces
Wooden Trays and Wooden Metal Surfaces
Cropping House Floors
Because of its safe nature, many growers are now using fogging as a method of application at the end of a crop, either in conjunction with spraying or with more economical steam regimes. The fog produced is remarkably effective, as like steam, it gets into all parts of the growing room, including ventilation equipment. Fogging is very economic, due to small amounts needed compared to spraying.
Disinfection and cleaning down is a basic part of everyday growing. Steam has long been the most important hygiene control against molds, but with large hikes in fuel prices, it is becoming more and more cost prohibitive.
Combined with this, the safety issues handling phenols, peroxides and aldehydes together with the new EU legislation coming means that disinfectants will play an increasing role in the future and will require plant protection registration (PPR).
Having PPR product opens up new opportunities and strategies for continuous hygiene programs that are very cost-effective.
