San-O-Agri is a scientifically formulated Hypochlorous Acid (HOCl) solution that is completely safe, non-toxic, non-corrosive, non-dehydrating and anti-pathogenic. The active ingredient, HOCl, is naturally in ones white blood cells, as the first line of defense against bacteria, fungi, spores, viruses, biofilms and other pathogenic micro-organisms. It is completely safe for application on plants and animals while posing no threat to animals/humans that may come into contact. HOCl is broken down when it comes into contact with any organic material and is therefore 100% biodegradable. It is not necessary to wipe or rinse the area of application after spraying, dipping, wiping or submerging it in San-O-Agri and it will not cause burning/damage to sensitive plants or parts thereof and poses no threat to any persons or animals and/or equipment in the vicinity.
Applications: General Sanitation
In any greenhouse there is bound to be areas that are both warm and damp, this leads to the build up of algae. HOCl is effective at stopping the build up of algae as both a treatment and/or as a preventative measure.
HOCl will destroy any dangerous pathogens and will subsequently break down quickly allowing it to be used to treat surfaces inside a pack house without leaving damaging residues.
HOCl can run through systems to disinfect areas that cannot be moved. In other words HOCl is an effective agent in Clean in Place situations without causing the build up of any damaging residues.
EMPLOYEE HAND SANITATION
HOCl is not damaging to human skin at all. When compared to ethanol, HOCl out competes ethanol in terms of its anti-pathogens effects as well as it’s safety to mammalian tissue. This makes San-O-Agri an invaluable hand sanitization solution.
If there are any pathogenic breakouts, any worker uniforms that have worked with the affected individuals can be washed in a solution containing HOCl to ensure that they will be free of pathogenic micro-organisms, preventing any spread of the diseases throughout the facility/farm.
Applications: Animal Husbandry
HOCl is highly effective at neutralising bacteria such as vibrio and E. coli (common fish born bacteria) this will lead to safer products for consumers.
HOCl can reduce the bacterial count of wastewater, leading to less contamination of the surrounding environment.
HOCl can increases vitality, resistance and improves fertility. Residue free treatment of mastitis, diarrhea and other infections.
Completely safe for placement in animal feedstuffs. To ensure that your animals are eating foods that are free of dangerous pathogens. This will allow the formation of a healthy gut because HOCl will be broken down, leaving no residues that could damage the animals natural gut microbiome.
HOCl generators are ideal for on-board ship sterilization solutions. HOCl can also be added to ice making machines for the fishing industry to ensure safer products right after the marine species are caught.
FRUIT AND VEG TREATMENT (INCREASED SHELF LIFE)
HOCl will not leave dangerous residues on fruit or veg and is able to destroy bacteria and fungi that are responsible for making foods go off. This will help increase the shelf life of foods without affecting taste or food quality.
HOCl is completely safe and effective as micro particles in a foliar spray. This allows San-O-Agri to be used in irrigation watering systems and this will protect plants against typical air and waterborne pathogens
International HOCl Approvals
- Food and Drug Administration (FDA) granted it the highest possible safety classification: Generally Recognized As Safe (GRAS)
- Food Safety Inspection Service (FSIS): Non-toxic and recognized as a food Additive
