In an effort to address the growing needs of the edible crop market, OASIS Grower Solutions recently announced its EPA-registered effective antimicrobial greenhouse disinfectant, Floralife MicroBLOC, is now approved for use in food preparation areas.

For edible crop growers who prepare their produce for market in their greenhouse, this product will provide them with a single-source disinfecting solution.

Floralife MicroBLOC disinfectant can be used to eradicat harmful bacteria like E. Coli on greenhouse surfaces where edible crops are handled.

“We’re excited to provide edible crop growers with a product that’s not only effective in disinfecting their greenhouse during traditional ornamental plant production,” begins OGS Grower Research Manager, Dr. Vijay Rapaka, “but can be used during edible crop production, as well. This is a huge deal, as we see the tremendous growth in hydroponic, aeroponic and aquaponic food harvest,” confirms Rapaka.

MicroBLOC is a quaternary ammonia which provides a quick pathogen removal, with residual action that lasts 14 days. As an EPA-registered effective antimicrobial disinfectant designed for use by wholesale and retail florists, shippers and greenhouses, MicroBLOC disinfects hard, nonporous surfaces such as flower buckets, tool, floors and walls of coolers, design and packing benches and counter tops. It is also formulated to effectively eliminate offensive odors caused by mold and mildew.

In addition to its expanded application for the food preparation arena, MicroBLOC can also be used as an overtop spray fungicide for ornamental crops. So plants like orchids that typically suffer from Botrytis, seedlings that suffer from Downy mildew, and even Dogwoods that suffer from Anthracnose can get relief.
