What is SaniDate 12.0's mode of action?
SaniDate 12.0 works through an oxidation chemical reaction that kills bacteria and fungus. More specifically, SaniDate 12.0 reacts on contact with the enzymes and proteins that make up simple cell organisms such as plant pathogens.
How should SaniDate 12.0 be used?
Irrigation Water and Drainage Ditches
SaniDate 12.0 eliminates algae and bacteria in irrigation water, drainage water, and ditches to stop the spread of disease to growing crops through contaminated water. SaniDate 12.0 will suppress and control algae, bacteria, and fungi on contact.
SaniDate 12.0 can simply be added to the body of water, and will evenly mix throughout the water column. SaniDate 12.0 may also be chemigated into agricultural irrigation systems.Fruit and Vegetable Processing Waters
SaniDate 12.0 treats process waters for fruits and vegetables to control spoilage organisms in water for whole or fresh-cut fruits and vegetables.
Fruits and vegetables can be sprayed or submerged for a minimum contact time of 45 seconds, followed by adequate draining. SaniDate 1bio2.0 will control the growth of spoilage and decay in process waters and on the surface of fresh-cut or post-harvest fruits and vegetables.Recycled Water and Evaporative Cooling Systems
SaniDate 12.0 may be used in all recycled water systems to prevent cross-contamination of plant pathogens found in irrigation systems and may be used in all evaporative and cooling systems to prevent the build-up of algae and bacterial biofilms.
SaniDate 12.0 is effective against
- Slime-forming bacteria
- Plant pathogenic organisms
