What is EcoWorks EC and how can it benefit my garden?

Left Coast Wholesale now carries ECOWORKS EC, which is far more than just pest control – it’s full spectrum pest control that’s a 4-in-1 OMRI certified organic insecticide, miticide, fungicide and nematicide. This means it takes care of the pests that go after your healthy plants, like aphids, whiteflies, thrips, and beetles, as well as spider mites, fungus, and parasitic nematodes. In addition to these pests, ECOWORKS EC is an excellent means of combating and eliminating fungal infections and mildews commonly found in growing applications.

Aphids - destructive garden pests

Typically, growers would assume that something this effective would contain several dangerous, harmful chemicals, but nothing could be further from the truth – it achieves all this through cold-pressed neem oil which contains a broad spectrum of azadirachtins and neem triterpenoids. This neem oil allows it to work in a multitude of ways: it’s a repellent, antifeedant, insect growth regulator, as well as a pest life cycle disruptor.  When comparing its efficacy in relation to other azadirachtin based products currently on the market, ECOWORKS EC is as good if not better in nearly every category, and as a bonus is proven to be an effective fungal hyphal disruptor while the other products don’t have this capability.  This means that the oils from this powerhouse plant is effectively combating pests at every stage of their lifecycle!

Though it takes care of the insect pests in your garden, ECOWORKS EC is proven to be 95% safe for beneficial insects through direct and indirect contact, and 95% safe for soil biology and beneficial earthworms when used at recommended soil drench rates. If you’re growing hydroponically, ECOWORKS EC is safe for your system and won’t form a foamy layer when added.

ECOWORKS EC is different from your typical ‘leaf shine’ neem oil as well – its efficacy on pests and fungi have been thoroughly tested and vetted. Best of all, it requires no wetting or spreading agent to form emulsions and has excellent UV stability to prevent crop burn. Just add to water and shake to form an excellent milky white emulsion.

ECOWORKS EC is safe to use right up until harvest and has just a 4-hour re-entry interval when used in greenhouses. Compared to the use of chemical pesticides, this makes ECOWORKS EC a much safer option for both commercial and greenhouse pest control.

If there’s still any hesitation about the safety of such an effective product, ECOWORKS EC is EPA registered and produced in an EPA registered facility that is exclusively used to produce neem-based products. This ensures that no contamination or adulteration of the product can occur during processing, and all batches are tested for possible contaminants before they even reach the shelves.  This EPA registration ensures that the residual amounts of the product left after application is at non-harmful levels – separating ECOWORKS EC from the various leaf shine neem oil products on the market that can’t make claim for either their insecticidal effectiveness or residue.

7 tips on starting and supporting your clones!

Agriculturalists have been using vegetative propagation throughout history so they could continue cultivating the plants that have favorable traits in their grow – these traits can be hardiness, size, and pest resistance. This is done by taking leaf cuttings from the desired plant and growing it into a new plant, this creates a clone of the original plant because this new plant will have the same genetic makeup. This form of cloning is favored by growers because it bypasses the seedling phase, allowing the plants to mature faster, saving the grower money as it allows for a faster turnover in sellable crops!
