Pro-Biome Indigenous Microbes 5 (IM•5)

While Pro-Biome Indigenous Microbes 5 (IM•5) does have foliage fertilisation properties, it is specifically made as a pest control solution. IM•5 contains esters formed by mixing acetic acid and alcohol, which provokes intestinal intoxication in pests. IM•5 is made by fermenting plant material, such as chillis. peppers, garlic, African garlic, mint. lavendar, eucalyptus and neem, in IM, white spirit alcohol, white or apple cider vinegar.

Using IM, IM•5 and FPE prophylactically and curatively

Prohylactic Programme: On a weekly basis, alternate between spraying IM (1:250), IM•5 (1:500) and FPE (1:500) onto plants - ensuring that all exposed sections of the plant are reached (top and bottom of leaves and stems) as a disease and pest control preventative measure.

Curative Programme: On a daily basis, alternate between spraying IM (1:250), IM•5 (1:500) and FPE (1:500) onto plants - ensuring that all exposed sections of the plant are reached (top and bottom of leaves and stems) if an outbreak of disease or pests is detected. Do this for 14 days and then revert to the prophylactic programme.
