We are excited to announce that we recently submitted and tested Sporekill Spot against Coronavirus C19 in a specialist lab and the results came back with a log 4.2 reduction. This means a 99.99% reduction ie total control.
The lab report is on the Home page.Testing was carried out to BS EN 14476:2013+A2:2019. This European Standard specifies a test method and the minimum requirements for virucidal activity of chemical disinfectant and antiseptic products.
We believe that mushroom farms would therefore find it be to be a very useful product around picking and personnel areas. It dries quickly due to the ethanol base.
Just to be clear, the C19 product is the Spot Treatment version of Sporekill which some of you may not have used before. It is what growers use for spot treatment of disease on the casing surface as a substitute for salt in Organic farms. It uses an ethanol carrier as opposed to water as a co formulant, which allows quick penetration on surface right down the root and evaporates off leaving the residual protection of Sporekill itself.
It is currently available in 20L drums and 1000L IBCs and we are working on a box which will contain 500 or 750ml spray bottles ready to use.
