Disinfection is of great importance in horticulture, because diseases and bacteria spread quickly in greenhouses.

Importance of hand disinfection in horticulture

In recent years, more and more new plant diseases have emerged, with all the major consequences this entails. In order to prevent the spread of these plant diseases, optimal company hygiene is of great importance. Humans are an important disseminator of diseases and bacteria. That is why it is very important to think about personal hygiene as well as disinfecting materials and surfaces. Especially hand disinfection is an important point of attention. Using the right hand disinfection reduces the risk of penetration and spread through the hands. It is very important to disinfect the hands both upon entry and during various activities. Upon entry is especially important, because visitors have been at different companies and can easily transmit diseases and bacteria. An optimal hand disinfection can be done with both dry and wet hands. However, there is a big difference in the application of disinfectants.

Cleaning wet hands

Hand disinfection of wet hands is suitable for washing hands on the sink, for example. A protocol for washing hands has been written for this purpose. By washing the hands with hand soap, you remove the dirt and grease from the hands, so that the hand disinfectant can then reach the bacteria on the hands. A disinfectant does not remove this layer of grease and dirt, so only disinfection (i.e. without first cleaning) has little effect.

Disinfecting dry hands

Hand disinfection of dry hands is mostly used during crop handling, but this step can also be added after washing your hands. This reduces the risk of diseases and pests entering or spreading by people. After all, you can't take any risks when it comes to hygiene. Enno Rapid is the best solution for a quick hand / material disinfection in horticulture. In addition to ethanol, this product also contains a proportion of Benzoic acid, just like Menno Florades. This extra ingredient ensures that potential plant pathogens are killed.

Enno Rapid = benzoic acid + alcohol solution + caring components; it consists for the most part of alcohol for a quick drying. The benzoic acid is meant to kill off plant pathogens, something that will not go as well with only alcohol disinfection. Hence a better disinfecting effect in our sector than the commonly used alcohol-based products. A product like Virkon is also not meant for contact with the naked skin. Enno Rapid also contains skin care products to prevent dehydration by alcohol.
