Magna-Bon has been serving the needs of the Florida citrus community for many years in the area of algae and bacteria control. As the needs of the citrus community grow and change, we too have grown and have diversified ourselves to better serve you. The rapid spread of Citrus Canker throughout South Florida has everyone concerned. As of yet there is no known cure.

It will be available in 1, 5, 30, 55 and 275 gallon containers.
