OICOMB (Oil combination) – plant health promoter

Oicomb is a plant health promoter and a restorative which promotes plant health through nutrition in pip fruit, grape, berry fruit, vegetable and ornamentals.

It contains Fennel oil (component A) and herbal sodium silicate Equisetum Plus (component B).

Oicomb manages plants in an agricultural context by increasing nutrient uptake due to the fennel oil stimulating the plant metabolism and increasing numbers and activity of soil bacteria and fungi, fennel also has a drying quality.

As a consequence the healthy plants are more likely to withstand pests and diseases.
The silica component is hardening the epidermis of treated crops.
