Protects wood from mold growth when water intrudes. Copper Hydroxide is sprayed on as a water suspension, shake sprayer vigorously to keep product in suspension. Product adheres strongly when dry and becomes active against "dry-rot" when dampness increases. I have also used it to protect orchid leaves from fungal attack. Even though the persistent blue stain is distracting, it becomes active when wet which is when fungus attacks. Avoid contact with orchid roots, they will be damaged by this very alkaline product. Pay particular attention to safety notes. Do Not Allow Contact with Eyes.
I can't really comment on the fungicide itself. How do you really know if its working or not? What I can say is that the rep on the phone was very knowledgeable and helped me to figure out the correct fungicide and concentration amounts based on the disease that my tree had. Also pricing was very competitive and shipping was fast. Great experience dealing with this company.
How much CuPRO 5000 DF Fungicide do I use per gallon to treat roses?
I purchased CuPRO to use both as a preventative and to treat blackspot. I am not able to determine from the label how much I should use per gallon of water. Actually, I find the instructions hard to comprehend--since it uses acres an so forth. Have others said the same thing? My concern is that I do not want to use too much or too little.
How much CuPro 5000 do I add to a gallon sprayer to treat Leyland Cypress?
According to the CuPro 5000 Fungicide Product Label, for Leyland Cypress you would use between 3-5 lbs of the product per acre in 20-50 gallons of water. This comes out to just over 1 ounce(2 TBSP) per 1000 square feet in no less than 1-2 gallons of water.
I have a 4gal backpack sprayer and want to spray Cupro 5000 on a magnolia that needs some help. Is 1 1/2 tablespoons the right amount per 4 gallons? Or, can I mix a concentrated batch and put it in a "dial n' spray" type sprayer for greater coverage? Thanks
CuPRO 5000 DF Fungicide should be mixed at approx. 1 oz per gallon water. You want to use approx. 3-4 ounces per 4 gallons.
