Hydroxycide 527

Hydrite’s Hydroxycide 527 is an effective liquid biocide formulated to eliminate harmful nonpublic health microorganisms that negatively impact crops, agricultural equipment, and water distribution systems. Hydroxycide 527 works immediately on contact with any plant surface for control/suppression of plant pathogens and disease; and immediately targets destructive nonpublic health microorganisms such as fungus, algae, molds, and bacteria. When used as directed, Hydroxycide 527 breaks down into non-harmful, nontoxic byproducts. EPA registered nonpublic health fungicide, nonpublic health bactericide, and nonpublic health algaecide for agriculture uses.

Hydroxycide 1522

Hydroxycide 1522 begins working immediately on contact with any plant surface for control and suppression of plant pathogens and disease. Hydroxycide 1522 can also be used to clean slime and algae from drip system filters, tapes and emitters removing blockages in micro irrigation systems and unplugging blocked emitters. Hydroxycide 1522 can be used in water or ice that contacts raw or fresh, post-harvest or further processed fruits, vegetables and raw agricultural commodities for the control of spoilage and decay causing bacteria* and fungi* in commercial operations and packing houses. Hydroxycide 1522 is used to clean harvest equipment such as but not limited to pickers, trailers, trucks (including truck body parts and tires), bins, packing crates, ladders, power tools, gloves, rubber boots, pruning shears or other hard, non-porous equipment. Hydroxycide 1522 is an effective sanitizer against microorganisms such as Staphylococcus aureus, Salmonella enterica and Xanthomonas axonopodis (citrus canker).

Fungicides and bactericides are important tools used in agriculture to protect crops from fungal and bacterial diseases. 

It's important to note that bactericides only target and control bacterial pathogens, while fungicides only target and control fungal pathogens. Therefore, it's crucial to identify the type of pathogen present in order to apply the appropriate solution.  

Bactericides can be applied as a preventative measure or as a treatment for an existing infection. When used correctly and in conjunction with other cultural practices, fungicides and bactericides can help to produce high-quality crops and protect their investments.
