When using liquid cleaning or disinfection methods, the efficacy of the product always depends on the interaction between the application time and concentration. Even though a grower can influence the concentratio, this is not always the case with the application time. This depends on application techniques and climate conditions. With foam as a cleaning or disinfection method you can also influence the application time. If you want to receive more information about foam and all of its potential, fill in the form below.
Advantages of foam
Growers are more and more using foam based cleaning and disinfection products. Using foam has more advantages compared to liquid disinfection products:
Foam lengthens the application time and with that the efficacy of the treatments, as foam has more adhesiveness. This adhesiveness prevents fast washing away, which makes foam more suitable for disinfecting or vertical surfaces such as greenhouse walls.
The creeping capacity of foam also allows difficult to reach surfaces or cornes to be treated.
Foam is a safer choice, because less aerosol is formed by using foam.
Different products for different applications
Each form of contamination requires a different product for cleaning and/or disinfection:
To spray the foam use the Menno foam gun.
To clean plant sap and organic soiling use Menno Hortisept Clean Plus.
To combat algae and bacteria use Menno ter Forte.
For broad spectrum disinfection of all plant pathogenic bacteria, mokds, viruses and viroids use Menno Florades.
