1. How Often u can use Actinovate as drench and foliage spray specifically on
cannabis .( i did read instructions but i feel cannabis could be different)

2. How long before harvest i should stop, and is it really safe to use on super late flower buds?

3.Should i do bigger doses then the ones in instruction or no?

4. there was a mention of using soap in foliage spray should i do it?Or it might hurt more then it helps? ( i have special agriculture soap that was ment for neem oil) 5. When i use Actinovate as foliage spray can i after aplay neem oil as well? ( for spider mites)

6. Bonus question = if i do evrything good and the end product dosent have any pm on buds, can it still pop up when i start drying, curing?

Hi, so i am in my early flowers and there are still at least 5 to 6 weeks left till harvest, and i have a quite big PM problem.

As suggested in forum i used NEEM oil as a preventive method to not get pm but with no success ( Both drench and foliage spray) Why ? because my plant Is in a war zone with PM all around him with no way to change the environment.

So after reading few reviews i decided to go for organic fungicide Actinovate lawn and garden.

Tough i have few questions i cant seem to find answer to.

+ i already did first soil drench, + with it i aplyed some nutes aswell, bud size doubled in one night. No idea was it actinovate or the fertilizer

Actinovate is expensive but, good stuff!

Everything it tells you is good for Cannabis.
Increasing the ratio’s will not do better – so don’t.

Neem, neem? Oh fuck Neem!

You got a problem? No? Why use an oil on your plant then?
Did you know that Neem is being found to be far more toxic then once thought?
I have found Neem to be one of the most overrated crap piles there is to growing. This will stir the pot. Ther are those that swear by it. One claims to eat it. Tends to explain some things.

Once the plants are gone. You have to sanitize the whole grow area and everything in it! Under, over, ceilings, walls, floors. Every surface in the area, including all things in it. Must be sprayed down with a sanitizing bleach mix. 1 part bleach to 9-10 parts water.

Now run your, RH at 40-45% and get control of the temps to only change by like 5 deg (F) during lights on (the natural swing between lights on and off – don’t count).

Any clones coming into your grow that you did not do. Need to be treated with an anti PM dip – Green Cure, mix at 1TBL per gallon and dip the plant in it, spray on the media surface and the cup it’s in – all over it.

Thanks, ye i prob wount use neem to much anymore.
But sure enough i have problems, Its an outdoor grow and it looks like this ibb.co/mFZrK5
+ Spider mites and 10 – 15 other species of unholy weed vampire fly’s

So i cant possibly clean all garden and even if i would it wouldn’t make a difference. i just have to fight it all the time thats exacly why i wanted to know the precise dosage so i can apply it as often as possible to ensure that final product inst contaminated .

You actually can apply it at much heavier rates if you believe the conditions for PM are perfect, and this will increase the effectiveness. Then again it was the owner and chief sales guy that told me this. He said double the dose if you’re in an outbreak and put it on as much as you like. I have noticed crystallized sugar on my leaves after I have done this (99% sucrose, some small percent bacteria), but I switch to H2O2 and Green Cure once I have an outbreak now.

No problem applying up to harvest.

I agree on the neem comments, I don’t touch the stuff anymore.

Canadian growers turn to biological crop protection

Currently, the Canadian government’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) has approved of 20 pesticides that can be used on commercial cannabis. This list is not static. Last May, there were 17 registered products. In April of this year, it was updated to 21 products. It has since dropped to 20. The pesticide removed? Monsanto’s Actinovate SP, a fungicide. A government spokesperson said this decision was made because the manufacturer requested Health Canada remove the use on cannabis from the product label. In turn, Health Canada removed‎ Actinovate SP from the list of approved pesticides.

The pesticides that the PMRA has approved are biological in nature—bacteria, fungi, protozoans, bugs that eat other bugs. There are no chemical insecticides approved for use. The culprits that LPs are looking for include thrips, aphids, spider mites, fungus gnats, whiteflies, and more.

Keeping them at bay takes a combination of pest control techniques, says Upeksha Nanayakkara, who works in quality assurance at 7Acres, a subsidiary of Supreme Cannabis. “You can’t just rely on the products that Health Canada has approved,” she says. “None of these products are effective in eliminating a disease or a pest on their own.”
