Yes, SuffOil-X is OMRI-Listed in the United States and EcoCert verified in Canada.
SuffOil-X may be used on fruits, vegetables and ornamentals in field and greenhouse. See labels for details.
CEASE has been assigned a BM 02 FRAC (Fungicide Resistance Action Committee) code. BM denotes Biological with Multiple Modes of action, while 02 is classified as Microbial (living microbes, extracts, or metabolites). Bacillus subtilis was reclassified from FRAC Code 44 to BM 02 in 2020.
It is safe to use with most BCAs/beneficial insects. Remove or close bumblebee hives before application.
Research trials and grower experience have shown CEASE to be safe on sensitive foliage and open blooms. If tank-mixed, testing must be carried out to prove whether the mix is as safe as CEASE alone.
The active ingredient in CEASE is Bacillus subtilis strain QST 713. Synonyms for Bacillus subtilis are Bacillus amyloliquefaciens, Bacillus subtilis var. amyloliquefaciens, and more recently, Bacillus velezensis. The interchangeable names are due to the evolving taxonomic classification.
SuffOil-X is packaged in 9.46 liter plastic jugs. A case contains 4 x 1 gallons or 2 x 9.46 liters. SuffOil-X can also be purchased in 113.6 liter drums.
No. It must be mixed at the rates indicated on the label regardless of water volume. Higher concentrations than this will result in foliar phytotoxicity.
No, for three reasons. First, it is not a labeled application method. Second, the concentration cannot exceed 1 – 2% v/v. Third, the very small droplet sizes do not provide the necessary wetting of the insect and mite pests.
Use enough spray solution to completely penetrate the leaf canopy and cover both top and bottom of all leaves until wet without significant runoff. Monitor weather conditions. Apply when oil will dry and evaporate in 1-2 hours and when relative humidity is less than 90%. Spray early in day [...]
