Leaf coat is a ready to use spray that can strengthen and protect plants. Made from a natural latex, it creates a permeable barrier on the leaf, which still allows air to the stomata and light to the chlorophyll. Originally developed to reduce loss of water through evaporation, the barrier also reduces damaged caused by pests such as fungus and insects.
When temperatures exceed 28 degrees Celsius, plants transpiration rates increase to cool down. Using Leaf coat prevents too much water being lost through evaporation, avoiding the plant sweating. The use of leaf coat creates a barrier that acts like a second skin. In cold temperatures, this skin helps the plant maintain the leaf temperature, safeguarding against the cold.
Leaf coat has a pleasant smell and doesn’t irritate like other chemical-based synthetic products. Leaf coat sits as a layer on top of the plants and biodegrades within 2 weeks, so shouldn’t affect the taste of the fruit when used as instructed.
How to use
Leaf coat comes ready to use but you should decant the product into a sprayer first.You can then apply the product straight from the sprayer after shaking without adding water.
Biobizz advises repeating the application at least once every 2 weeks right through all stages of growth up until 2 weeks before harvest. Regular use will help maintain a thin membrane, 1.5 microns thick, which decomposes naturally by light and oxygen. You should stop regular application 2 weeks before harvest to ensure no product residue on your fruit.
