Sil-Matrix

Sil-Matrix is a unique two-in-one organic fungicide & insecticide.
  

Sil-Matrix is a unique combination of both a preventive fungicide and a contact miticide/insecticide. Sil-Matrix controls mites and insects that it contacts, controlling their populations. It forms a physical barrier within the leaf cuticle that prevents penetration of fungal diseases.
