STRESSGARD is a nontoxic, biodegradable polymer that provides a layer of protection from heat, cold and other stressful environmental conditions. STRESSGARD is an easy and safe to use foliar spray. It does not cause any harm to sensitive plant tissues or fruit, and is completely invisible and odorless when dried. When STRESSGARD is sprayed over the plant, it creates a thin layer of plastic over the entire surface of the leaf. This layer of polymer is very exible so it stretches as the leaf grows. STRESSGARD only needs to be applied once every 21 days in order to remain effective. STRESSGARD’s clear plastic lm has the ability to drastically reduce the level of stress the plants suffer during heat and or drought spells. One of the greatest advantages of STRESSGARD is that it limits transpiration and thus reduces plant stress due to high temperatures by 30% to 35%. Of course, this also reduces water and pumping costs, increases transplant survival rate, and it add 4 to 6 degrees Fahrenheit of frost protection. When stress caused by drought, heat, trans- plant or shock is reduced, costs are reduced, crops improve, and pro ts climb. STRESSGARD is safe to use and requires no training or permits. It is 100% water soluble and does not contain harmful ingredients that are polluting or toxic to the environment. Fruit treated with STRESSGARD is safe to eat, simply wash with soap and water and the STRESSGARD rinses off. Field applications should stop 30-45 days before harvest to allow STRESSGARD enough time to biodegrade before picking. Advantages of Using STRESSGARD • Reduces Moisture Loss • Protects against, heat, frost, drought, winds, transplant shock
