If you’re worried about treating weeds, pests, and diseases, relax; Natria has a full line of alternative solutions to set your mind at ease. You can rest easy knowing we don’t cut corners or make concessions. We use strong, yet sensible ingredients that get the job done right the first time. Many Natria products are certified for Organic Gardening and/or OMRI Listed. Natria is also exclusively in Garden Centers and Co-Op retailers. Results matter, and so does how you get them.

The Natria spotlight item for the month is the brand new Natria Disease and Fungus Control – Ready to Use. This Organic and OMRI Listed item can be used in Hydroponic Gardening, Home Gardening, and Home Greenhouses up to-day-of harvest. The Disease and Fungus Control can be used on tobacco, hops, vegetables, fruits, ornamentals, and flowers. This product uses a dormant and growing season liquid copper fungicide, which protects buds and flowers. It decomposes to form soluble copper and fatty acids (both of which can be used by microbes and plants).

Using the provided hand-pump sprayer, spray all plant surfaces (top and bottom of leaves) thoroughly. One quart will treat 10 square yards. Begin treatment 2 weeks before disease normally appears or when disease first appears and repeat in 7-to-10-day intervals if needed. Re-apply after rain.

The fungicide works quickly on diseases and fungi listed below:

  • Peach leaf curl
  • Downy & Powdery Mildew
  • Leaf and Fruit Spots
  • Blights
  • Black & White Rust
  • Fruit Rot
  • Anthracnose and more!

We also encourage people that use this product to use these additional cultural techniques to reduce plant disease:

  • Inspect the plants often for signs of disease or insect pests. Take appropriate measures when warranted.
  • Promote healthy plant growth, but do not over fertilize
  • Do not grow the same types of plants in the same location in successive years.
  • Control weed species around the garden that are related to the plant species that you are growing. Weeds are a source of plant pathogens
  • Space plants to ensure good airflow and drying after rain. Also, water plants in the morning to minimize the time that plants are wet. Wet leaves, flowers, and fruit promote infections by plant pathogens
  • Prune plants during dry weather to reduce wound infections
  • At the end of the growing season, remove and compost all garden refuse. Garden refuse can act as a source of plant pathogens
