Spud Guard® 2 EC 


Spud Guard® 2 EC is an emulsified CIPC spray that prepares potatoes for shipment. The solution in injected right into the cold water flow of the pre-pack wash. Spud Guard® 2 EC's proprietary cold water formula contains a surfactant that enables the active ingredients to disperse uniformly over the surface of the potato.

  • Save on heating and electricity with the cold water formula designed to work in water as cold as 35°F.
  • Highly soluble for immediate injection into the water flow.
  • Produces higher residue uptake using less chemical.
  • Uniform coverage means higher absorption through the eyes of the potato, resulting in better residue levels and improved sprout control.
  • Works with a variety of application methods.
  • Remains liquid in transit and does not freeze at low temperatures.

Superior Coverage and Uptake

The cold water formula is designed to mix quickly with cold water for immediate use.  PINNIP’s proprietary formula contains a surfactant that enables the chemical to disperse more evenly around the surface of the potato.  Better coverage results in better absorption and residue levels.  The end result is more effective sprout control using less chemical.

Product Specifications

  • Chemical Name: Chlorpropham (Isopropyl N-[3-chlorophenyl] carbamate.)
  • Available in 5 gallon pails or 30 gallon drums.
  • One gallon of Spud Guard® will treat up to 2,000 CWT of potatoes.


Spud Guard® 2 EC is usually applied as a 1% emulsion spray on the drying table, or similar station, after the potatoes have been washed. Automatic proportioners or injection systems that apply an equivalent rate of active ingredient may be used. Equipment should be set to spray evenly across the rollers moving the potatoes. Rolling or tumbling action improves coverage compared to flat conveyor belts.
