Banana Spray Oil
Safe, Reliable, and Cost-Effective
Banana farmers rely on many technologies – some old, some new – to keep their crops protected from disease and pests. Spraying crops with pesticides, fungicides, and insecticides is one of the most reliable and cost-effective tools at their disposal, and most of these require a spray oil to act as a carrier.
Protection Against Fungal Banana Plant Diseases
Banana plants are at constant risk of contracting diseases like Black Sigatoka, also known as "black leaf streak," and Yellow Sigatoka. Two particular strains of fungus cause these diseases: Mycosphaerella fijiensis and Mycosphaerella musae. Left unchecked, Black and Yellow Sigatoka can wreak havoc on a banana plantation and severely affect crop quality and yield.
When mixed with carrier spray oils like Resolute Oil's MaxPar BSO, fungicides are a frontline defender against fungal diseases and help keep plant-to-plant spore propagation to a minimum.
Effective Barrier Against Many Pests
Banana spray oils are excellent carriers for fungicides and pesticides and ensure that chemicals remain on plants long enough to be effective. An oil's distillation midpoint is a measure of how long it takes the oil to evaporate, and 400 degrees Fahrenheit is considered the lowest level before a spray oil is deemed ineffective. The average midpoint for MaxPar BSO 75 is 418° F (214° C).
MaxPar BSO is an odorless, tasteless, and colorless highly-refined mineral oil that, when used as a carrier for fungicides, pesticides, and insecticides, has been proven effective in the fight against disease and pests. MaxPar BSO has an ultra-high unsulfonated residue content level, which ensures low phytotoxicity when applied to plants.
Resolute Oil offers MaxPar BSO in bulk and packaged quantities and services customers domestically and internationally.
