Phytoclean Specialised Disinfectant Cleaner & Sanitiser

PHYTOCLEAN is a highly effective general purpose micro biocide and algaecide. No need to use those harsh and damaging bleaches or chlorine-based products anymore.

PHYTOCLEAN IS A REVOLUTIONARY NEW DISINFECTANT CLEANER and SANITISER, SPECIALLY FORMULATED FOR THE CONTROL OF Phytophthora Cinnamomi, and similar organisms, in the agriculture, horticultural, plantation, construction and mining industries.

Phytophthora Cinnamomi is a severe soil borne plant pathogen which attacks a wide range of plant species. It is known to cause dieback and death of susceptible plants in native forests, plantations, farms, nurseries, home gardens and food production. It can be a severe threat to plant producers to both the survival of seedlings and to the possibility of contamination of stock passing out of the nursery and into gardens, farms and forests.
A major source of the spread of the disease is via soil adhering to vehicles, machinery and tools and footwear for which adequate hygiene and washdown procedures have not been taken.

With the growing pressure on nurseries to raise their hygiene standards, it has become necessary to produce effective and safer products to kill Fungi and pathogens such as Phytophthora cinnamomi.
Previously, bleaches, sodium hypochlorite, and phenolic based products have been recommended, but have been found to be far less effective and more hazardous than quat based products. In independent testing of four quat based products, Phytoclean was found to be the most effective in inhibiting growth of and killing the fungus when in contact with the chemical. Phytoclean has been used extensively in the Forestry and Agricultural industries in Australia now for more than 10 years.


Phytoclean is a hard surface application treatment which is non- hazardous, Non-Acidic, Non-Caustic, Biodegradable, and Non-Bleaching.

  • Phytoclean is the only hard surface disinfectant that is registered for the control of  Phytophthora cinnamomi. APVMA approval No. 64562/48624
  • Phytoclean is classified as a non-hazardous product which is safe for users with health concerns  in the work place. It is non corrosive on the majority of surfaces, and it is not necessary to wash off residue which assists in maintaining a pathogen free environment.
  • Phytoclean is highly concentrated making the product very cost effective and thus more effective and economical to use than sodium hypochlorite or phenolic based products.
  • Phytoclean is high in detergency and washability ensuring there is no residue when used in washdown situations.
  • Phytoclean is unique in its rapid performance and kill time as compared to other products, and is effective in as little as 30 seconds.
  • Phytoclean is also an effective antimicrobial for general use as a fungicide and anti bacterial agent. It has also been tested for effectiveness against Didymo – ( Didymosphenia geminate ), chytrid fungus and Mucor.
  • Phytoclean is also effective in controlling algae and moss


The following are the guidelines for mixing and applying Phytoclean in various situations. If your particular application is not listed, you can use the following as a guide or contact us for more specific information.
