    Abstract: A protective coating for applying to a plant's foliage, branches and trunk for protecting against environmental stresses is formulated by combining a paint powder with at least one insect repellant oil and at least one rodent repellant oil in a water as a diluent. The paint base protects the plant against abiotic stresses by reflecting sun rays, mitigating damage caused by summer sunburn and winter sunscald, and retaining heat. The insect repellant oil and rodent repellant oil protect the plant against biotic stresses. The protective coating once assembled in an aqueous medium, is applied to the plant. The paint powder, when activated with water, has been specifically formulated to encapsulate the added oils and offer a gradual release of active ingredients that repels insects and rodents over several months under ideal conditions. The novel coating is united by a tacky binder material made from acid treated and methyl chloride rinsed methylcellulose.
