Trusted Efficacy, Lasting Protection

With concerns over cross-contamination and worker health, growers seek an eco-friendly hard surface disinfectant solution with ongoing microbial prevention. When used with a Pace cleaner, it offers a cleaning solution from the greenhouse to the breakroom.

Sustainable Microbial Control

KleenGrow is a quaternary ammonium disinfectant that controls algae and liverwort as well as diseases such as downy mildew, powdery mildew, Alternaria, Botrytis, Clavibacter, and bacterial blights caused by Erwinia. KleenGrow is approved for use on greenhouse ornamental, foliage, and flowering crops. Used as a preventative and curative measure, KleenGrow can be used at propagation to finished crops.

The mode of action is through membrane disruption which prevents buildup of pathogen resistance, enabling broad spectrum control. KleenGrow’s active ingredient is longer-lasting than other fungistats, providing superior crop protection.

Safe for use in environments where harsh chemicals and fumes can have an adverse effect on plants and soil, KleenGrow is a trusted and effective workhorse in the horticulture industry.

Take control of your pest management to maintain healthy crops by improving environmental situations that could compromise plant health.

Refer to the product label for the most up-to-date disease control information.

KleenGrow is often used in tandem with Strip-It or Horti-Klor, cleaners employed by growers for the removal of dirt, biofilm, algae, and mineral build-up. When applied to a clean surface, KleenGrow offers lasting protection from viruses and hard surfaces.


Contamination Issues

Managers of a nursery discovered some contamination issues resulting in product loss. They found it was associated with the inadequate disinfecting of trays and bins. Hard work surfaces also needed disinfecting, so operators sought an economical solution.

Formulated For Greenhouses & Nurseries

Upon a recommendation from another nursery, managers contacted a Pace product distributor. Following the Pace ACBD System®, nursery staff washed hard surfaces with a cleaner, rinsed and applied KleenGrow.

Prevention & Control

After several months of using KleenGrow, the contamination issue was eliminated and product loss was mitigated. Nursery managers reported a cleaner and more efficient work environment and have since implemented Strip-It Pro into their day-to-day cleaning & disinfecting procedures by implementing the Pace ACBD System®.



How does KleenGrow kill microbes?

KleenGrow disrupts cellular membranes which provides broad spectrum control.

Will KleenGrow control bacteria?

Yes, it will control all microbes on hard surfaces and on plants upon contact.

Why should I use KleenGrow instead of Bleach?

KleenGrow has residual up to 30 days on a hard surface, therefore it continues to control microbes and algae. Bleach dissipates quickly without residual microbial control. It also takes up 8oz/gal of bleach for effective hard surface control, but only 1 oz/gal of KleenGrow.

What is the REI (Re-Entry Interval) of KleenGrow?

We have created a chart to explain KleenGrow rates and REI below:

48 HR 0.06 to 0.38 Spray or drench application over crops for disease control
12 HR 0.03 to 0.20 Intermittent chemigation for disease control on crops
0 HR 0.003 to 0.014 Continuous chemigation- for water borne pathogen control
0 HR 0.12 to 2.0 Hard Surface Cleaning & Disinfection
Can KleenGrow be used for continuous injection into water source AND as a weekly or biweekly over-the-top treatment?

Yes, there are specific rates for each use:

  • 2-5ppm injected continuously controls algae and diseases in the irrigation lines and water
  • 40-175ppm weekly or biweekly, as a spray or drip, depending on crop or if being used on greenhouse crops controls diseases and algae on crops.
Does the KleenGrow label permit use of the product on food contact and greenhouse areas safely?

Yes, KleenGrow can be used to disinfect indoor and greenhouse growing areas for all crops including flowers, vegetable, herbs, and hemp. For packing areas, KleenGrow can be used at 200ppm on surfaces that come in contact with produce.
