ACUROSIL NANO + NANO SILVER PEROXIDE HORTICULTURE Horticulture is one of the main agricultural practices





ACUROSIL NANO + NANO SILVER PEROXIDE HORTICULTURE Horticulture is one of the main agricultural practices in

Horticulture is one of the main agricultural practices in a nation. It is basically the science of cultivating gardens or orchards, that is, it refers to the process of cultivation of fruits, vegetables, flowers and ornamental plants. It involves increasing the area and productivity of farming lands, bringing technological aspect in agriculture, raising the farmers' incomes and their standard of living, being a source of employment opportunities, etc. India is bestowed with a varied agro-climate, which is highly favourable for growing a large number of horticultural crops such as fruits, vegetables, root tuber, aromatic and medicinal plants, spices and plantation crops. It is the second largest producer of fruits and vegetables. India has a large variety of fruits in its production basket and account for almost 10% of the world's total fuit production. Some of the important fruit varieties grown in India are Mango, Banana, Citrus, Pineapple, Papaya, Guava, Cheeku, Jackfruit, Apple, Leechi and Grape. More than 40 kinds of vegetables belonging to different groups are grown in India - including tomato, cucumber, capsicum, onion, brinjal, cabbage, cauliflower, okra, etc. A wide range of bacterial, fungal, viral diseases and nematodes affect horticulture crops in India. Most of these diseases and nematodes can be controlled or treated by using Acurosil Nano

Acurosil Nano is a multi-component complex formulation containing Hydrogen Peroxide (H2O2) and Silver (Ag) in nano form. Hydrogen Peroxide is known to have a strong germicidal effect. Silver is well known to posses anti-senescence properties.


Hydrogen Peroxide and nano Silver are mixed, bonded and complexed

Application & Dosage:

Pre Plantation: Soil Fumigation or Sterlization


Pioneers of greenhouse cultivation recommend ACUROSIL Nano as a soil steriant. It provides good control over soil fungus and weak weeds, leading to visual plant health improvement in crops grown in sterilized beds.

1. Wet the beds with neutral pH water up-to 75% water holding capacity of soil.

2. In irrigation water mix 35ml ACUROSIL Nano in 1ltr of water.

Foliar Spraying


Applying ACUROSIL Nano to the foliage is widely practiced in flower production. It helps as profile active control measure in disease-pest and pathogen infection.

Dosage: 2-3 ml per liter of water

of good storage and transportation linkages. These losses could be minimized by suitable post-harvest measures to increase the shelf life

Drip irrigation, also called trickle irrigation or micro-irrigation, is a localized irrigation method that slowly and frequently provides

growth. Straight forward washing of harvested or cut flowers after harvest may simply redistribute organisms from infected to healthy

water directly to the plant root zone. Favorable environmental


conditions in drip irrigation systems can cause rapid growth of several species of algae and bacteria resulting in slime and filament buildup, which often become large enough to cause biological clogging, which is quite difficult to control.

Washing with fungicides/chemicals can leave bad odour and undesirable residual toxicity on the produce which can lead to consumer rejection. With strict environmental regulation and controls imposed by most importing countries on pesticide residue levels in force, it is imperative to adapt to eco-friendly treatments.
