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.
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.
yOU SAY "use 1 ounce(2 TBSP) CuPRO 5000 DF Fungicide per 1000 square feet in no less than 1-2 gallons of water..." That is a 100% difference in the strength of the solution. That is a lot. Can you be more definitive in the amount please. ONE VALUE.
When using CuPRO 5000 DF Fungicide water acts as the carrier. In fact, the more water the better to assist with the plant soaking up the CUpro. As long as you evenly apply 1 oz over 1000 square feet, you can use either 1-2 gallons of water.
