OMEGA™ Biopolymer

A non-burning liquid blend of Yucca Plant Extracts and Chitosan. Chitosan is known to have eliciting activities leading to a variety of defense mechanisms in host plants in response to abiotic stress, microbial infection and parasitic nematodes, including the accumulation of phytoalexins, Pathogen-Related (PR) proteins and proteinase inhibitors, lignin synthesis and callose formation.

Chitosan is known to chelate nutrients and minerals. Yucca is also a very effective natural wetting agent. Yucca and Chitosan both stimulate the microbial activity of the soil while helping speed the plant uptake of fungicides, insecticides, and fertilizers.

Directions for Use:
Apply just prior to the onset of stress conditions and repeat every 14 - 28 days
