What is Leaf·Coat™?
Leaf·Coat™ is a ready-to-use product that strengthens the plant en protects the plant against unwanted insects and molds. Leaf·Coat™ is a product made from natural latex that was developed to restrain evaporation.
Within a few hours after application, a very thin elastic layer forms around the leaves. This natural latex creates a protective, permeable, self-degradable layer on the leaf, while at the same time it allows the passage of air and light. This thin layer is however effective enough to protect the plant against pests and diseases.
How to use Leaf·Coat™
Leaf·Coat™ does not have to be mixed with water, but is ready for use. For the best results we advise to apply Leaf·Coat™ by using an atomizer. Spray the leaves and flowers of the plant completely, repeat this about two times a week. Leaf·Coat™ can be used till two weeks before the end of the flowering period.
Note: Leaf·Coat™ will not be absorbed by the leaves; therefore it will not affect the taste of the fruit.
Protection layer that is formed by Leaf·Coat™
When the plants are in an atmosphere that is too hot and humid (over 28 degrees Celsius), the plants can lose a great quantity of water by evaporation through the leaves.. By using Leaf·Coat™, a layer of natural latex is formed around the leaf, which avoids the plant from "sweating".
On the other hand, using Leaf·Coat™ at lower temperatures (especially in winter), protects the leaves against cold. The natural latex formed by Leaf·Coat™ helps to maintain the temperature.
