Antibiotics trials inconclusive after multiple years
According to the most recently published figures of the CRDF Bactericide Field Trials, antibiotic treatments are found to take multiple years to show positive results, “Evidence suggests that multiple years of treatment are necessary”. CitruSaver trials which began in June of 2017 already showed dramatic measurable improvements in tree health and fruit quality at harvest in mid-November 2017 — only 4.5 months!
Antibiotics lose effectiveness over time
Antibiotics are the end of the line are required to allegedly show results. However, in other agricultural applications, antibiotics and synthetic pesticides have been shown to produce superbugs and superweeds which are immune to the treatments. This occurs not only in agricultural but in medical products.
Antibiotics require expensive equipment
Oxytetracycline is applied to the trees with expensive spray equipment in a time consuming, labor intensive process. CitruSaver fertilizer is applied directly to tree roots using existing irrigation systems. It can be poured directly into water storage tanks at a 1:100 ratio – requiring no extra equipment or labor costs.
Antibiotics have strict application windows
Due to their harmful nature, some antibiotic treatments can’t be applied within a 60 day period before harvest. CitruSaver can be applied with no restrictions – at the grower’s discretion. The number of treatments is limitless.
Oxytetracycline is the end of the line
CitruSaver Fertilizer is a completely natural product – using ingredients that are safe for human consumption. Oxytetracycline is the most powerful antibiotic currently available – and can cause severe side effects in humans. Our plant-based ingredients have been used for to promote human and plant health effects for millennia.
