StorOx is a broad spectrum post-harvest multi-purpose
bactericide/fungicide that uses specially formulated peroxygen chemistry
to kill a wide variety of decay-causing bacteria, fungi, spores, and
slime-forming algae on contact. Benefits of StorOx include:
StorOx bactericide/fungicide is recommended for use in many different types of applications, including:
StorOx is approved for use for many different kinds of applications, two of which are discussed here in detail: potato applications, and post-harvest applications.
Follow these three steps on potatoes and tubers to reduce decay diseases such as Pythium, Soft Rot, Silver Scurf disease, and Early and Late Blight.1. Bin Piler ApplicationThe bin piler application is the best way to initially reduce disease pressure before potatoes go into storage. Spray bar nozzle configurations and piler applicators can be purchased to assist with StorOx bin piler applications.2. In-Storage Humidification ApplicationsInject StorOx through humidicells (also known as cell decks) or spinner humidifiers. To create a finer fog, consider installing an air-assisted fogging system. Inject StorOx every time the storage humidifier is run.3: Hot Spot TreatmentsInstall air atomized fog nozzles at individual plenum pipes to release a more concentrated StorOx fog over hot spot areas.
Treatment of SurfacesApply StorOx to all tools, crates, surfaces, and storage rooms using applicators such as sprayers or fogging devices.
Line SprayStorOx is recommended for use as a line spray to apply to produce surfaces before packaging. No final rinse is needed. StorOx has a pleasant smell when diluted, making it easy to work with.
Storage PilerUse StorOx to quickly eradicate spoilage organisms on produce to be placed in storage. This treatment is commonly used for carrots, potatoes, onions, or any other produce requiring medium or long-term storage.
Fogging and HumidificationA humidifier or fogger can be used to disperse StorOx throughout crop or food storage facilities. This treatment is commonly used for carrots, potatoes, onions, or any other produce requiring medium or long-term storage.
Water TreatmentStorOx is recommended as an alternative to chlorine to treat water treatment systems such as dump tanks, flumes, or hydro coolers. StorOx levels in the water can be monitored using test kits, which can be purchased separately.
Q: Is StorOx an effective curative application for potato storages?A: Yes. StorOx has been proven to be very effective at preventing the spread of disease in storage due to rots, frost, and blights.
Q: Can StorOx be dispersed through the humidification system to prevent spoilage?A: Yes. In fact, applying StorOx while the humidification system is running is the most effective way to prevent diseases in storage facilities.
Q: Is StorOx effective in treating storage and handling equipment?A: Yes. StorOx is specially labelled to treat post-harvest surfaces, equipment, and structures. It effectively eradicates spores and pathogens dormant in storage.
Q: Is StorOx OMRI listed and EPA registered?A: Yes. StorOx is registered with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and is OMRI approved for use with organic crops.
Q: What affects the shelf life of StorOx?A: StorOx will remain effective as long as it is not exposed to chemicals that it can react with. Be sure to keep the StorOx container tightly closed and any stock tank solutions well-covered. StorOx levels in stock tanks can be monitored as needed using StorOx test strips. StorOx is not affected by freezing.
Although StorOx contains only non-toxic chemicals, all carriers require us to pay a Hazardous Materials charge of $22 for commercial-grade products, including StorOx. As a courtesy to our customers, this cost is included in our advertised price as part of our internal handling costs.
Due to carrier restrictions, StorOx cannot be shipped by air, and must be shipped separately from other ordered items. Shipping charges will be applied during checkout according to the destination "Zone" that the shipment is in. Customers must provide a street address when ordering.We cannot ship StorOx to Hawaii in smaller quantities. Contact us to inquire about a volume shipment.
