Nemguard is a nematicide made from an extract of garlic. As a plant protection product based on a food grade plant extract it harnesses natures own defences against plant parasitic nematodes which every year cause massive damage to both crop yields and quality across the world.
A conservative estimate is that plant parasitic nematodes cause $100bn of crop losses every year. (Source: Society of nematology 2015).
Ecospray in-depth research has demonstrated that the substances found within the garlic extract that are active against nematodes are called polysulfides.
Ecospray have developed a unique process to stabilise a specific range of polysulfides so that performance is optimised each and every time. This is key to gaining regulatory approval in many countries around the world to market Nemguard as a biopesticide.
