Surround protects plants in three ways, promoting higher yields and more high-value fruits and vegetables. First, the calcined kaolin particle film of Surround protects fruit against direct sunburn and heat stress damage. Surround can reduce sunburn losses by up to 50%. Surround also promotes plant health, which leads to more efficient photosynthesis and higher yields under extreme light and heat growing conditions.

Lastly, carefully timed treatments of Surround reduce insect activity, delaying or even eliminating the need to apply conventional insecticides later. No other sunscreen product provides this insect suppression capability.
For organic growers, the insect suppression properties of Surround provides a valuable tool in managing insect populations. Surround is certified for use in organic production systems by the Organic Materials Review Institute, also known as OMRI. Click here for OMRI certificate.
