  • Actinovate Expiration Date

    Created by Mrs. Reid on

    Hi there.

    1. How seriously should I take Actinovate expiration? The pouch I bought last year has been expired, so I’m wondering if I need a fresh one.

    2. Is it not a good idea to premix Actinovate in a jug to water seeds/seedlings over x days? Is this something that needs to be used within xx hours?

    Last spring we had received some product from the manufacturer that was 1 years expired, naturally we could not sell this to the public. Out of curiosity I took the items home to see how well it worked being out of date. I have found that it works well I had to increase the application from 1/2 tsp to 1 tsp for my application. It has taken care of the blight on my Grapes and Aspen trees. For powdery mildew in my Aquaponics system it has been the only product that works fast and won’t harm the fish.

    2. Is it not a good idea to premix Actinovate in a jug to water seeds/seedlings over x days? Is this something that needs to be used within xx hours?

    I would suggest to not store it for more than 1 day, I have not had nay experience past the 1 day mark. If you do store it for longer please mark the bottle properly for just in case.

    Over all I think this is one of the best products I have used to take care Powdery Mildew and Blight’s in my greenhouse and yard.

    Hope this helps!
