Wilt-Pruf® ... The Safe Way To Reduce Moisture Loss When Plants Are Under Water Stress
Wilt-Pruf® is a natural pine oil emulsion that is NON-HAZARDOUS, ORGANIC, AND BIODEGRADABLE. It is not damaged by freezing during storage, it has an indefinite shelf life, and is non-toxic to eyes and skin. Wilt-Pruf® spray dries to form a clear transparent and flexible protective coating without interfering with plant growth or materially affecting respiration, osmosis, or photosynthesis.
Wilt-Pruf® does not require registration with the EPA because we make no pesticidal claims. We also meet specifications of the FDA for use on edible crops.
Ultraviolet rays from outdoor daylight react with our film forming polymer to form a coating which is like having numerous bed sheets on a bed. When the top sheet is removed, there are still many more sheets left. The same phenomenon is true with Wilt-Pruf®. As the outside layer wears off with the sun, wind, and rain and powders away, another layer forms.
Still the Best....
Anti-Transpirant for Over 60 Years!
Protects valuable shrubs such as evergreens, rhododendrons, azaleas, hollies, boxwood, laurel, and many other ornamentals when under water stress - by reducing moisture loss through foliage.
This process continues until all the layers have worn off which takes three or four months and sometimes longer depending on climatic conditions.
Wilt-Pruf® is the only horticulture anti-transpirant that has the ability to provide this long lasting protection. Other anti- transpirants provide a single coating only, and when that coating cracks and falls off or wears off with the weather (perhaps as soon as two or three weeks) there is no protection left.
Wilt-Pruf® Guards Against Moisture Loss Year Round
On arborvitae, cedar, cypress, and juniper, it is important to wait until late fall when those species have had a chance to harden off and the moisture in the foliage has retreated to the root system for the winter. If abundant moisture is left in the foliage of those species, and an earlier than normal deep freeze should occur, moisture in the plant cells could freeze and burst causing damage.
In addition to Ready-to-Use Trigger-Sprayers, Wilt-Pruf® is available in Pint (.47 liters), Quart (.95 liters), Gallon (3.8 liters), 5 Gallon (19 liters), 30 Gallon (114 liters) and 55 Gallon (209 liters) containers.
Wilt-Pruf® concentrate should be added to water - not water to Wilt-Pruf®. Continuous agitation is not necessary. If separation should occur, container needs only to be stirred or shaken.
