Trifecta Crop Control works on molds, mildews, and pests, using food crop safe ingredients, and does it in novel ways using a nano sized soap molecule as a delivery vehicle to allow it to do its work. Nothing in our product is classified as carcinogenic, when used as directed, it will not harm workers, it will not harm consumers, it will not harm the environment, but your crops will test clean, free from mold, mildew, pests, pathogens, and pesticide and fungicide residues. Trifecta LLC is bringing novel solutions to an emerging industry at a time when new thinking is needed to ensure that the products consumers are enjoying are healthy and meet the stringent requirements of regulators, states and consumers.
Trifecta Crop Control is the perfect combination of science and nature engineered to protect your harvest with cutting edge nano-biotechnology to effectively stop and prevent crop infestation where it matters most!
Traditional approaches required highly toxic doses of chemicals where the negative repercussions due to exposure were often worse than the cure. Trifecta Crop Control is made of completely natural essential oils held in a nano sized colloidal suspension. Testing has shown that as an IPM program, regular use with Crop Control will prevent infestations of mold, mildew and pests. Using a hermetically sealed room, plants were grown from seed and treated biweekly with Trifecta Crop Control for three weeks and then exposed to rooms with broad mite and russet mite infestations. Untreated controls were exposed simultaneously. The treated plants showed NO SYMPTOMS of infestation after 72 hours of exposure time. Live bugs were found on controls after 10 minutes of exposure time.
Trifecta Crop Control is made with a unique blend of food grade essential oils including garlic, thyme, clove and peppermint oils, coupled with a nano-emulsifier made from saponified vegetable base oils that render the essential oils in the product water soluble.
This enables the plant to effectively receive the benefits from the oils that boost the plant’s immune system and growth cycle, while simultaneously allowing Trifecta Crop Control the ability to break down and disappear rapidly and completely.
Essential oils are made primarily of substances called terpenes and terpene alcohols. On the cellular level fungi and their spores have a lipid shell that protects the cells from external agents. Various essential oils contain unique terpenes that weaken the lipid shell on the cellular membrane of the molds, mildews, and their spores. This allows light and air to break those cells down from the inside out inhibiting respiration, energy production and spore reproduction.
Essential oils alone are prohibitively expensive and also exhibit significant phyto-toxicity, meaning that if one just sprayed essential oils all over their plants; mold, mildew, and pest issues would be mitigated, but the plants would also die because you would inhibit their ability to take up water and photons. Using our proprietary soap, an emulsifier made from the saponification of Coconut and Palm oil fatty acids the essential oils are rendered fully miscible with water as a nano-emulsion composed of a small amount of essential oils dispersed throughout a matrix of water as microscopic droplets.
The essential oils used to manufacture Trifecta Crop Control were also chosen for their ability to mitigate and repel pest insects. Similar to the action that occurs on the lipid shells of molds and mildews, terpenes and terpene alcohols break down the chitin in insect’s exo-skeletons. Using our technology the particle size of the essential oils in the water become so small that the respiratory systems of pests is also impacted by contact, essentially suffocating them. Most commercially available insecticides affect the endocrine systems of pests, and over time pests evolve resistances to these molecules. The respiratory system is different; there is no evolving a resistance to something that prevents the ability to respirate.

The respiratory system is different; there is no evolving a resistance to something that prevents the ability to breath, rendering arachnids such as Russet or Broad Leaf mites vulnerable to Trifecta Crop Controls.
Unlike many other solutions for mold mildew and pests, Trifecta Crop Control can be used in all stages of the growth cycle in outdoor, indoor and greenhouse operations!
As organic growers, we are always looking at new and innovative approaches to add to our IPM strategy. The Trifecta Crop Control checked a lot of boxes for us. We were not only pleased with the results but impressed. Fall of 2016 was a particularly bad year as far as powdery mildew and botrytis pressure. We used Trifecta Crop Control applied with a Spectrum electrostatic sprayer as a part of a preventative regime with unparalleled success. This product has become an indispensable part of our growing practices. These guys not only know cannabis but they understand the reality of the commercial scale grower creating a high quality craft product within a regulated industry.

Here at Trifecta we understand the deep importance of creating natural healthy solutions to increase, protect and save crops from weak yields due to mold, mildew and pests. Important new regulations for insecticides are changing the landscape of the cannabis industry across the nation. We are committed to providing all growers with a solution to produce clean test results and prevent pathogens, pests, chemicals, mold and mildew from destroying crops.
Trifecta has found the perfect intersection of science and nature by combining a cutting edge nano-particle formulation of food grade essential oils that is proven to be deadly effective against mold, mildew and pests for thousands of growers from hobbyists to large commercial operations.
In just a few years time, Trifecta Crop Control has become one of the top natural fungicides and pesticides being used in Northern California and is currently used by thousands of growers and sold in hundreds of stores...Why? Because it WORKS and those who KNOW use Trifecta!
