depending on the tip you spray with at 2 gallons per 1000 application rate it will dry pretty quick

the mode of action is, it hydrolyzes fungi on contact, it breaks down its exoskeleton and turns it to water. It also enter the leaf of the plant and is taken up by a receptor that signals that the plant is under attack by a disease, the plant in turn does something called SAR systemic acquired resistance, the plant begins to build its defenses (hormone production) against the attack. So it knocks out the pathogen and the plant builds its immune system, pretty cool

Great job explaining the Mode of Action... are you able to classify this as 'fungicide'??? I would think this product is favorable to chemical poisons or sterilants in that its residual effect is an immune system booster...

Next question of course is, What are the effects on beneficial organisms in the soil, and on the leaf???

ICT NPP is classified by the EPA as a Minimum Risk Pesticide and is exempt from registration under FIFRA regulation 25(b). http://www.epa.gov/pesticides/biopes...s/25b_list.htm
NPP does a good job controlling disease it is labeled for.

It can have negative effects on beneficials and a followup treatment with soil inoculants is a good idea.
