Guarda is the first EPA-registered, bactericide/fungicide with botanical thyme oil as the active ingredient. Its formulation has captured the power of thyme oil using its minimal risk inert HOLDit Technology, making it an effective, essential chemistry for crop protection. Without HOLDit, thyme oil is rendered inefficient because thymol volatilizes in the environment, never allowing for correct contact time to destroy microorganisms. Take advantage of up to 14 days of residual activity with Guarda and say “Cu” later to heavy metals.
