**Note: Sq. foot conversion to number of beds in the table below is approximate. The range of how much Kaolin to apply per sq. foot is wide and therefore extreme accuracy in space application isn’t crucial.**
Mix in bucket first. Then put in sprayer. Shake often while using!!
Add the powder slowly to approximately 1/4 of the water you will be using, stir and mix well by shaking vigorously for 30 seconds.
Add the remaining ¾ of the water and shake for an additional 30 seconds.

Derived from Kaolin clay, a natural mineral. Forms a barrier that acts to control insect pests and disease.
Tiny particles of the kaolin clay powder attach to insects when they contact it, agitating and repelling them. Even if the particles do NOT attach to their bodies, the insects find the coated plant/ fruit unsuitable for feeding and egg-laying.
Protects against sunburn and heat stress.
Protective white film cools plants by up to 15°F, which can help to reduce heat and water stress.
