Product Features:

Envy can increase frost tolerance by as much as 4°C.

Envy can reduce moisture losses through transpiration by up to 50%, reducing drought stresses and irrigation.

Envy will not impede photosynthesis and normal plant growth.

Envy is non-toxic, pH neutral and biodegradable.

General Application Rates:

Compatibility:

Do Not combine with any other pesticide or fertilizer in spray tank.

Application:

All anti-transparent spray applications must be applied for full coverage or used as a dip.

Envy should be applied 24 hours before adverse weather conditions.

Apply when there is sufficient daylight time to dry, minimum 4 hours of sunlight.

Foliar fertilizers and pesticides should be applied prior to an application of Envy or 2 weeks after application, as Envy may inhibit absorption of some systemic products.
