Phytophthora Cinnamomi is a destructive soil borne plant pathogen which attacks a wide range of plant species. It’s known to cause die-back of susceptible plants in native forests, plantations, farms, nurseries and gardens. It can be a severe threat to plant producers to both the survival of seedlings and contamination of plant stock for gardens, farms and forests.

Previously, bleaches, sodium hypochlorite and phenolic based products were recommended. These chemicals have been found to be less effective and more hazardous than quat based products*. In independent testing of four quat based products, Phytoclean was found to be the most effective in inhibiting growth of and killing the fungus. Phytoclean has been used extensively in the Forestry and Agricultural industries in Australia.

Quat is the common name for quaternary ammonium chloride compounds that are anti-microbial cleaning agents that are low in toxicity and corrosivity. They compare very favorable against bleach, the cheaper alternative. Quat has an excellent wide spectrum germ kill ability, film forming residual, low toxicity and corrosivity, simple to use, good shelf life, works in a variety of pH ranges, highly concentrated, no odor, and safe on mostly all surfaces. Phyto means plant.
