- Salicylic Acid



Aloe-Tech is a whole-leaf Aloe Vera concentrate (500% stronger than standard aloe extracts). This makes it a powerful botanical activator and plant growth promoter that improves overall plant health. Aloe-Tech is also an ideal adjunct for microbe multiplication in the soil, on the leaf or during the brewing of Fytaforce biofertiliser.

Aloe-Tech contains salicylic acid for improved immune responses. Salicylic acid is an antioxidant that plays a role in defending plants and fruits against pest damage or disease. It improves long-term or 'systemically acquired' resistance and makes use of communication between damaged tissue and the rest of the plant. Plant hormones (such as salicylic acid) play a role in this process. Their presence leads to changes in the plant, inducing genes which protect against any further spread of the disease within the plant.


  • Improves overall plant health.
  • Stimulates a state of increased readiness in the plant, switches on its self-defence mechanism.
  • Improves long-term resistance to diseases and insects.
  • Promotes soil biology.
  • Combines well with Fytaforce biofertiliser. This encourages more micro life on the leaves and boosts the uptake of Aloe-Tech.

  • To prevent microbiological activity in the packaging, it is important to store in a cool dry area out of direct sunlight.
  • Minimum storage temperature: 5 °C.
  • Shake or stir well before use.
  • Do not exceed the stated rates: higher rates can inhibit the growth of certain beneficial fungal organisms.
  • Avoid applying just prior to harvest to any crops intended for animal consumption due to the bitterness of the aloin content.
  • Compatibility and/or performance can not be guaranteed when combined with other products. Check compatibility on the Product Compatibility Chart on or perform a jar test.
  • For performance Soiltech recommends a spraytest on a small area before wide-spread use.
