SNS 244TM Ready to Use Natural Fungicide is made up of 100% pure thyme botanical extracts. The botanicals are all food grade GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) materials. SNS 244 RTU Natural Fungicide is exempt from EPA registration under minimum risk pesticides exempted under FIFRA section 25(b).
Airborne 'pathogenic' or disease causing fungi get inside the plant either by contacting its skin (epidermis), or by growing in through the plant's breathing holes (stomata). Then they either poison and kill the plant cells before absorbing food from them or simply steal nutrients from the living cells. Some fungi live in the soil and enter into the roots. They can either block the water-conducting cells or kill them, causing the plant to wilt. In many cases the plant is seriously damaged or may even die. As a topical spray SNS-244 Natural Fungicide kills the fungus through a biochemical interaction on the spores. Some of the components of SNS-244 Natural Fungicide are also absorbed systemically by the plant, suppressing the life cycle of the fungal spores and nurturing the plant cells to increase the plant's ability to fight the disease.
