Wound dressing for tomatoes.
Scaniavital® silica prevents the dehydration of wounds on tomato plants after the removal of old leaves or other stem damage. The application of this product could be compared to applying grafting wax. After applying Scaniavital® silica a physical barrier is created which prevents further evaporation of the wound and penetration of dust and dirt from outside.
Application:Scaniavital® silica must be spread in a thick coating over the fresh plant wound. This can easily be done with a brush, plastic/latex gloves or with the useful squeeze-bottle with an integrated brush. Apply Scaniavital® silica evenly around the plant stem covering the surface of the wound as well as a few centimetres above and below the wound.
