Plant treatments include fungicides mostly--just ways of treating
plants for insects, molds, etc. Generally, commercial products are recommended for these.
However, the movement toward supporting alternative means, especially via organic gardening
methods is a real benefit to horse owners.
Garlic, cornmeal and baking soda are common "organic fungicides".
I am continuing to experiment with these, and will let you know my results. Let
me know yours too!
One thing for sure--they sound a lot safer and/or easier than chemical products.
Below are some sites that I have found to be very informative on this subject.
This guy is GOOD! I found out about him via WBAP radio (in Dallas, TX, on
the Internet too--dial-up accessible; very informative 4 hour call-in talk show on Sunday mornings) and Dallas Morning News.
Just an incredible amount of information that is free--I have not tried the membership
only area, however just the free info is incredibly useful for a horseowner in particular.
Lots of info on Cornmeal, Baking Soda and Garlic alternatives.
