TerraClean 5.0 employs an oxidation chemical reaction to
kill fungi, bacteria, and spores. More precisely, TerraClean 5.0 reacts ‘on
contact’ with the proteinaceous enzymes that make up single-celled organisms.
TerraClean 5.0 is buffered to react to pathogens in the soil
being treated, therefore it is vital that the soil is adequately wetted to ensure
that the activated chemistry will saturate beyond the possible root zone of the
crop being protected. Rate and usage
guides for the various crops this product is labelled for, should be carefully
followed. Areas saturated with TerraClean 5.0 dilute do not need to be covered
with protective plastic or tarps to be effective.
TerraClean is approved for use in many different kinds of applications such as golf courses, athletic fields, and landscapes. Three soil-based applications are discussed here in detail: soil treatment at planting, drip irrigation, and consecutive crop soil treatment.
Soil Treatment at PlantingWhen applied at planting, TerraClean very effectively controls harmful soil-borne pathogens such as Fusarium, Pythium, Rhizoctonia, Phytophthora, Thielaviopsis, and Verticillium. Apply TerraClean mixed with setting water at planting time using banded or broadcast application.
Drip IrrigationTerraClean is recommended for use in drip irrigation systems as an effective soil treatment for harmful pathogens such as Fusarium, Pythium, Rhizoctonia, Phytophthora, Thielaviopsis, and Verticillium throughout the growing season.
Consecutive Crop Soil TreatmentWhen different crops are grown one after another using the same soil, it is recommended that the soil be prepared for each new crop by applying TerraClean through the irrigation system between plantings to eradicate harmful soil-borne pathogens such as Fusarium, Pythium, Rhizoctonia, Phytophthora, Thielaviopsis, and Verticillium.
Q: How is TerraClean most effectively applied?A: TerraClean is most effectively applied using drip irrigation systems like micro emittters or drip tape.
Q: How chemically compatible is TerraClean with other crop treatments?A: TerraClean is generally compatible with a wide range of common fertilizers, pesticides, and insecticides, but will be chemically incompatible with products containing these active ingredients: copper, aluminum, magnesium/zinc, and magnesium/copper. To check for compatibility with another product, mix small amounts of the two product solutions together, and see if a chemical reaction occurs. If compatibility is still unclear, always apply TerraClean before the other product. Be careful never to mix the TerraClean concentrate with the concentrate of another product.
Q: Can TerraClean be applied as a foliar (plant) spray?A: No. It is specifically engineered for soil applications. Use OxiDate for foliar spray applications.
Although TerraClean contains only non-toxic chemicals, all carriers require us to pay a Hazardous Materials charge of $22 for commercial-grade products, including TerraClean. As a courtesy to our customers, this cost is included in our advertised price as part of our internal handling costs.
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 TerraClean to Hawaii in smaller quantities. Contact us to inquire about a volume shipment.
