Product Overview

This product is intended for large bodies of water and cannot be used in small ponds containing koi or gold fish.

Cutrine-Plus is one of the most popular algaecides on the market today. It is a double-chelated copper solution effective against a wide variety of algal species. Due to its double-chelate it stays in the water column longer, and in combination with its greater amount of activity in the plant can be much more effective. Cutrine-Plus is the only chelated copper algaecide that is patented on the market today.

    Cutrine Plus Algaecide

    By Anonymous on 07/24/2013

    Verified Purchase

    We have used Cutrine Plus for our 1 surface acre pond for the past 2 years. We are very pleased with the results of this product. We combine this product with Reward in a sprayer (50/50 mix). The combination works well for underwater algae and floating algae. Within 24 hrs the algae is already turning brown and dissipating. This 50/50 combo always kills cattails very well.

    Works just like it said

    By Linda on 06/30/2017

    I have moss issues in my 1 1/2 acre pond. I have tried everything and raking was all that would get it out of the pond. I got the Cutrine Plus and sprayed according to directions. Got a rain after 24 hours of spraying and the moss left. When the water went back to normal moss was there but turned brown and no new moss is coming in. Still have some spots of the brown moss that has not left but nothing new.

    It's Working!

    By Al on 06/14/2016

    I found this to be the best price on the Internet for Cutrine Plus Algaecide. I was pleased that my delivery arrived well ahead of when I expected. I have applied several diluted gallons at the 9:1 dilution rate from a tank sprayer and have seen excellent results on our 2-3 acre pond. Thanks, DMOPC!

Questions & Answers

Have a question about this product?
  
Q
Can I use Cutrine Plus directly on algae mats?

I have a two acre pond with algae around most of the shore about 8ft out. Can I spray the algae mat directly to eliminate the algae without treating the entire pond? I would like to spray the algae in sections to eliminate any possible harm to the fish.

A

Yes, Cutrine Plus can be used on algae mats. You do not want to treat the entire pond all at once so that you do not harm the fish. You will use 1.5-2 gallons per surface acre of pond. You will treat 1/2 of the pond and wait 2 weeks and do the second treatment. Please see the product label for complete application instructions.

Q
Can I use Cutrine Plus to control out-of-control algae?

I have (2) 1/2+acre ponds which are overrun with bottom growing algea, which consumes the pond. There are several types of fish in the ponds and I have livestock in both fields where the ponds are, so it must be safe for animals and fish. I have tried numourous solutions, but all that is empty is my wallet.

A

Cutrine Plus Algaecide is one of our most popular algaecides, effective against the most popular varieties of pond algae. Please be aware this and other algaecides with copper should not be used in water containing koi, trout, or goldfish, or in water that sheep or goats may drink. We would encourage you to be sure that you have correctly identified the algae or plant that you are treating to ensure you are using the best products. You can find a good resource at pondplantid.com or by contacting your local Department of Natural Resources.
