Belchim announce new biocide

Belchim announce new biocide: The amenity sector is set to benefit following the recent approval of a new product for the professional biocide market.

Enclean, containing 500g/l of the active ingredient Nonanoic acid, has just received registration and will strengthen and expand Belchim Crop Protection’s product range into the amenity sector says Belchim Amenity Specialist William Weld.

“Enclean has been greatly anticipated. It’s a natural plant origin biocide specifically designed to remove algae from a wide range of hard surfaces including: pavements, greenhouses (outside), patios, roofs, wooden decking and fence panels. Enclean’s active ingredient Nonanoic acid is extremely effective, non-corrosive and quickly degrades into natural elements. It offers good operator safety and has no environmental hazard classification.

It also has a very low dilution requirement making it one of the easiest biocides to use;  “1 litre of formulated product will cover the same area as 5 litres of most other surface cleaners” he adds.

Enclean comes in 1L packs, with a dilution rate of one pack per 14L of water offering users 550m2 of coverage from a single 15L knapsack sprayer using an Evenspray red 0.4 nozzle (4 times the coverage of most other biocides under the same operating conditions) claims Mr Weld.

“Enclean will help to simplify the application of surface cleaners whilst delivering excellent results on algae. It should be available for use via Belchim’s amenity distribution partners from the beginning of March” he concludes.

New Offering From Belchim

New Offering From Belchim: Belchim Crop Protection has significant experience in the industrial and amenity markets, particularly in the weed control sector via the market leading broad-spectrum residual active ingredient flazasulfuron, sold as Chikara® Weed Control and Katana®. 

A new offering from Belchim in the amenity market is Katoun® Gold containing 500g/L pelargonic acid. (MAPP No 17879) as a non-selective contact herbicide for use on amenity vegetation (bare soil around trees and woody shrubs), natural surfaces not intended to bear vegetation and permeable surfaces overlying soil including gravel pathways, forest nursery and hardy ornamental plant production.

New Offering From Belchim

Katoun® Gold is a very pure natural product produced from a plant origin.  It has a low rate of use (22.5L/ha) and may be applied 4 times in a season.  Another benefit is the low water volume of 225L/ha delivering a high work rate with a knapsack sprayer.

Katoun® Gold gives users a much needed additional option in a market where there are a limited number of alternatives available, particularly in more sensitive areas.

Katoun® Gold is a contact acting product that rapidly breaks down the plant cuticle wax layer leading to loss of water by evaporation.  Visible symptoms can be seen after only a few hours with complete control of smaller weeds after a few days.
