GLACIER is a tool, among many tools, to decrease frost or freezing damage to plants. Don’t let this happen to your crop this winter!
Our specialty product, GLACIER, is your answer! GLACIER is a systemic material and is taken into the plant structure, acting as an “anti-freeze”. GLACIER also acts as an ice formation inhibitor, reducing surface ice markings on fruit.
Modes of Action
GLACIER is a systemic material and is taken into the plant structure, acting as an “anti-freeze.” GLACIER also acts as an ice formation inhibitor, reducing surface ice markings on fruit. GLACIER enters green tissues and certain flower parts. Care must be taken when applying GLACIER. Please consult the label. There is a direct and inverse correlation between the speed of plant growth (related to temperature) and the duration and degree of protection provided by GLACIER. In other words, faster growing plants will be protected for shorter periods of time.
Applications & Uses
GLACIER begins to enter the plant almost immediately, but usually 6 to 8 hours are required for any benefit from GLACIER applications. The best results are obtained when GLACIER is applied at least 24 to 48 hours prior to freezing. Long periods of low temperatures can cause damage despite the application of GLACIER but the damage is often reduced when GLACIER is used. GLACIER may need to be reapplied if it rains 1/2″ within 24 hours of application. GLACIER may be applied by ground or air. GLACIER should be applied in sufficient water to cover all foliage. GLACIER should not be sprayed to runoff as phytotoxicity may occur. Consult the label for application instructions. NOTE: For banded application (treated-acre or sprayed-acre) adjust rate accordingly. For backpack spray application, refer to the product label.
