TRUMP SPRAY OIL
Trump Spray Oil is a blend of highly refined paraffinic oil and nonionic surfactants that is suitable for the management of pests in a range of crops as specified on the product label.
The purity of the paraffinic oil (USR not less than 98%) reduces the potential for phytotoxicity compared to many other oil based products while ensuring a highly effective method for managing pests.

of certain pesticide products. It can also provide some fungicidal
Trump Spray Oil kills pests by direct contact. Typically it coats the
insect and causes suffocation however it can also cause death by
interacting with the insect’s fatty acids and by interfering with
feeding and excretion.
Deposits of Trump Spray Oil can also
prevent settling of scale crawlers and by repellency, reduce the
number of eggs laid.
When the spray solution contacts the plant surface, the water
separates from the oil and evaporates. This leaves a thin layer
of oil over the surface of the plant and insects.
