Protect and strengthen your precious trees against unwanted insects and damaging leaf fungi with Biobizz’s Leaf-Coat.
Made from natural latex that was originally developed to prevent evaporation, it creates a permeable, self-degradable barrier on the leaf, which still allows air and light to get through.
If the atmosphere gets too hot and humid (over 28ºC), Leaf-Coat helps prevent the plant from losing too much water through evaporation. At the same time, the natural latex layer it forms around the leaves, helps the plant breathe and stops it from “sweating”. Then when the temperature drops, such as in winter months, Leaf-Coat safeguards against the cold by helping maintain the leaf temperature.
As an environmentally friendly alternative to pesticides, Leaf Coat couldn’t be more suitable or safe to use. Reducing the need to use pesticides also saves money. And unlike synthetic and toxic products it has a pleasant smell, and doesn’t irritate. Because Leaf-Coat doesn’t get absorbed by the leaves, it doesn’t affect the taste of the fruit either.
How to use
There’s no need to mix Leaf-Coat with water – simply apply straight from the bottle, preferably from a spritzer. Spray the leaves and flowers completely, and repeat this about two times a week until a fortnight before the end of the flowering period.
Within a few hours of application, a very thin elastic layer—1.5 microns thick— forms on the leaves. Its beneficial effects last for up to two weeks until it is naturally decomposed by light or sunlight.
