There is a ver inexpensive common health food product called "Citricidal"
(Grapefruit Seed Extract) about which best selling Books have been written.
It is reputed to be a Panacea for animal ills from Colds almost to Ebola.
In my incessant wonderings it occurs to me that it might be a cidal or a
discourager for anything which likes plants as hosts. For non-valuable
plants could it be worth experiments? If successful, maybe sell
Agrochemicals and get shares in Citrus?
