Heads Up® is a patented proprietary composition based on naturally occurring plant extracted biochemicals; unique biochemicals that have been selected, concentrated and enhanced to elicit specific systemic plant defense pathways.
Studies have shown Heads Up®, while not being active on the disease itself, uses a different mode of action (M.O.A.) known as Systemic Acquired Resistance (S.A.R). When Heads Up® is applied as a seed treatment it enables the germinating seed to inhibit the attacking disease through it’s own defense mechanisms. This M.O.A. offers systemic, full season protection against yield robbing pathogens. Heads Up® is a natural source plant defense activator and is EPA registered as a reduced risk bio-fungicide.
Heads Up® is available and sold as a 58 gram (0.13 lb), concentrated, water soluble dry powder that does not contain any living micro-organisms. Because Heads Up® contains no living micro-organisms, it is a stable product with a long shelf life.
