BREAKING: EPA REGISTERS KPHITE® RX FOR CONTROL OF “HLB” CITRUS GREENING
The Environmental Protection Agency gave KPHITE® RX full registration for control of Huanglongbing or “HLB” Citrus Greening.  The acceptance was granted based on research conducted by a panel of researchers demonstrating a reduction of the effects of Greening on citrus crops.

 

Researchers Link Greening to “Phosphate Starvation”
Florida and California researchers have published findings and positive results on HLB. KPHITE® bactericide, and ReNew®, manufactured by Plant Food Systems, Zellwood, FL, were the oxyanion and Polyoxyanion P solutions utilized in the research, which resulted in offsetting the effects of HLB. In the field study, yields doubled as the citrus trees recovered.
