Frequently Asked Questions about Simix AgPlus™
How soon will I see new growth? On herbaceous plants (tomato, potato, beans, melons, etc.), you should see results within days. When it comes to trees and shrubs, it depends on the plant. With citrus trees, you should see results within 30 days or with the next flush. With other woody plants, you should see results (ie, new growth) in less than 30 days.
Why do I have to keep spraying every week or month? Pathogens are being constantly reintroduced to your plants via pests, wind or contamination from other sources. You need to reapply Simix AgPlus™ to protect your plants from the ongoing invasion. During periods of high heat and humidity, you may need to apply Simix AgPlus™ every 3 days on trees and shrubs and every two weeks on other plants.
Why do I need to apply Simix AgPlus™ to the soil? Pathogens found in the soil spread easily on the plant or tree. Plants absorb what's in the ground. Eliminating pathogens from the soil will improve your odds of producing more fruit and vegetables. Your fruits and vegetables will be stronger and tastier, and last longer on the shelf.
How does Simix AgPlus™ help the plant? Pathogens that are airborne or are brought to the plant by insects are not able to get a foothold due to the high alkalinity of Simix AgPlus™. Most plants are veritable buffets for pests and microbes. Simix AgPlus™ makes plants less hospitable to microbes and pests.
What makes Simix AgPlus™ safe? You may remember from science class that any substance with a high pH could be considered dangerous to humans, plants and animals. That's where Simix's breakthrough technology comes into play. Using nanotechnology, Simix AgPlus™ maintains a completely safe high pH. Simix has been laboratory tested on humans and found to be completely safe.
How long has Simix AgPlus™ been in use? More than ten years. Simix AgPlus™ is the same formula that Simix has been using to remove algae on rooftops, bacteria in hospitals, and germs in laundry for more than a decade. It has been thoroughly field tested in the United States, Peru, China, Canada, and Australia. It has been shown time and time again to remove algae, bacteria and germs without hurting a single tree, plant, person, fish or pet when used as directed.
Why does Simix AgPlus™ contain titanium dioxide? Titanium dioxide is recognized by the EPA as an environmentally biofriendly biocide. It is a safe ingredient that is consumed daily by billions of people and is found in millions of consumer products including milk, cheese, instant mashed potatoes and sunscreen. Simix AgPlus™ contains nanoparticles of titanium dioxide that work as a photocatalyst, interacting with the sun to keep your soil and plants clean and free of pathogens.
