Dear Asharf Shalaby

The extracts are commercial products based in a blend of vegetal extracts (polyphenols). It was used in 0.5-1 Kg/ton but recommended doses depends on your particular challenge. This is not a new alternative, it has been used for more than 10 years now but this trial was used to compare cost/efficacy benefits of using just this phytochemical alternative. I strongly suggest to switch AGP programs to any of the available alternatives that would produce you similar benefits.
Please let me know any question that you would have.

How does it compare with a Carvacrol/Oregano and Cinnamaldegyde mix?
