Surround WP

OMRI Listed. Derived from kaolin clay, a natural mineral, Surround WP forms a barrier film that acts as a broad spectrum crop protectant. It is labeled to control insect pests and disease, while protecting against sunburn and heat stress.


The kaolin clay coats the plants with a white powder film that acts in several ways to deter pests. It creates a hostile environment for insects and mites, the particles adhere to the insects acting as a strong irritant and the film creates a physical barrier to insects like psylla.

The material is porous, which allows the important process of gas exchange to occur. In addition, Surround WP helps prevent sunburn damage and can enhance fruit coloring.

Use on trees such as apples, pears, peaches, citrus, berries and some field crops.
Labeled for use with stink bugs, cutworms, Japanese beetles, leafrollers, thrips, codling moth, psylla, flea beetles, leaf hoppers, cicadas, Gypsy moth, June beetle, grasshoppers, Mormon cricket, and sharpshooters.

Surround® WP crop protectant forms a mineral-based particle film intended for protection of agricultural crops, plants in nurseries, and greenhouses. When Surround WP is applied to plants, a dry white film results. Many pests are listed as suppressed, which means that full control often is not achieved, and supplemental methods often are needed to enhance the level of control. Thorough, uniform, and consistent coverage is essential throughout the infestation or stress period.

Pre-harvest intervals (PHI): Surround WP may be applied up to the day of harvest.

For fresh market crops that will not be washed or for field packed crops where a residual white film is not desired, make applications early-season only. White residue at harvest may be minimized if applications to smooth skin crops like apples stop when the fruit is approximately 1/4 of its expected size.

Plant Response Precautions: Surround WP keeps plant surfaces cooler and an advance or delay in maturity may result. Pome and stone fruit may have maturity delays of 3 to 7 days, especially in cool regions.
