Fungicide and Bactericide. For control of a wide range of fungal and bacterial diseases on fruits, vegetables and ornamentals.
Protectant copper fungicide used for the control of many diseases on fruit, vegetable and ornamentals. Copper fungicides work by preventing spore germination and can act at several stages in fungus development. Coverage is therefore far more important than the quantity of actual copper on the plant surface, and that is why particle size is important.
- Shake well before use.
- Apply via a pressure sprayer using nozzles and pressure which produce a fine to medium spray.
- Dilute at a rate of 3-4 ml per litre of water.; 15-20 ml per 5 litre pressure sprayer.
