Sporekill Drying

On our label we state that Sporekill should be left to dry after application. Depending on your procedure will dictate how long drying takes eg If used after cookout (before filling again) the drying time is very quick due warm structure and floor.

Sporekill INCREASES in activity as it dries, reaching its MAXIMUM effectiveness at the point of drying.

USA Tests on Sporekill (Nutriclean)

The effect of Sporekill was tested on Trichoderma aggressivum and Verticillium fungicola in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania. Click on the link below.

sporekill testing_longwood report 10 0620

The findings were:

Sporekill had a significant effect on mushroom pathogens Trichoderma aggressivum and Verticillium fungicola. The growth of both molds can be effectively inhibited at a concentration of 0.4% on PDA media.

We recommend usage rates between 0.75% and 2% on the farm depending on application. Nutriclean is the brandname for Sporekill in USA and most countries outside of Europe.

Original Sporekill Trial Results

Here are the original trials made with Sporekill on Trichoderma, Verticillium, Mycogne and Dactylium. Click on link to view.

250108 Report on Disinfectants

The findings were as follows:

 It was clear that the vigour and growth of the germ tube in all of the pathogens tested was markedly reduced even at the lowest concentration tested.

In all treatments the vigour of the germination recorded was markedly and increasingly reduced as the concentration of the test solution increased.

Above 0.4% no germination was recorded in any of the treatments in the 48h period tested.

The findings were in summary:

It is very clear from these results that Sporekill is very effective at halting germination of spores of the pathogens tested.

At concentrations at or above 0.5 %, Sporekill in these tests killed all pathogens we have tested so far.

When engulfed with Sporekill at concentrations at or above 0.5% the pathogens do not germinate.

Fogging with Sporekill

Sporekill is very effective when fogged into clean growing rooms prior to filling them with fresh compost.

Rate is 1 Litres Sporekill in 4 Litres water for 1000m3

After fogging is complete, turn off fans and leave for 12 hours. This lets the fine fog drops slowly on every availble surface in the room.

Wash out fogger with warm water after use.Fogging a room

 

 

 

Belt & Braces!

Sporekill is first a fungistat and fungicide for the safe disinfection of surfaces with the additional benefit of a soap film to trap any spores and mycelial debris landing on them after the disinfection operation….that’s BELT & BRACES!
