Addressing algaes in greenhouses

According to Max Gilley, a Technical Sales Representative for BioSafe Systems, GreenClean® PRO has been a trusted product in the industry for over 20 years due to its versatility and effectiveness. It contains sodium carbonate peroxyhydrate, which makes it ideal for controlling a wide range of algae types, including filamentous and planktonic blue-green algae.

"Growers can use GreenClean PRO on various hard surfaces in the greenhouse, such as walkways, floors, walls, benches, fan blades, tanks, and coolers. It is particularly useful for eradicating liverwort and nostoc, which have become increasingly common pests in greenhouses and nurseries. Liverwort, a bryophyte, can be challenging to control, but our alkaline formulation is highly effective against it", says Max.

According to Max, using GreenClean PRO not only helps control pests but also creates a cleaner environment, reducing insect pest pressure. "The product has a zero-hour REI for granular applications and a one-hour REI for liquid and foam applications, making it convenient for daily greenhouse production. It can be easily integrated into a greenhouse sanitation and cleaning program, and regular light applications are recommended for preventing algae and maintaining a clean operation."

BioSafe says growers have reported excellent results with GreenClean PRO, praising its efficacy in controlling algae, nostoc, and moss while promoting a safer working environment.

"Additionally, it can be used to treat algae and other pathogenic organisms in water bodies like canals, lakes, ponds, and reservoirs. Overall, GreenClean PRO is a valuable tool for growers, providing long-lasting control and contributing to a healthier growing environment."
