From Bees Trees
Agrobiomics developed its first product keeping in mind the harmonious balance of nature.
Bees are essential players in the pollination process of many fruit and nut tree crops. One of the main byproducts of the worker bees is the beeswax used to build the honeycomb. Beeswax possesses hydrophobic and antimicrobial properties that naturally protect crops.
Unlike any other pruning wound sealant solutions, Agrobiomics uses a unique formulation of beeswax and JMS stylet oil to create an active coating on pruning wound surfaces that sticks even under rainy weather while providing antimicrobial activity for control of trunk diseases.
The technology was developed at the University of California, Riverside by Dr. Philippe Rolshausen who has 20 years of experience in trunk diseases in grapevines and fruit and nut tree crops.
CropSeal 2.0 can be safely and easily applied by hand or brush on fresh wounds made on grapevines after pruning, at an application volume of approximately 1 pint per acre (depending on planting density and vine training).
CropSeal is appropriate for use onto spur, cordon and trunk wounds and should be applied as soon as possible after pruning.
Coat the wound with CropSeal to create a contiguous seal coating, only one application is needed.
