“Inimitable fungicides with broad crop usage and reliable disease control”

 

Product Category: Fungicide
Active ingredient: Copper Hydroxide
Formulation: Available in WP Formulation (Wettable Powder) with 77% w/w concentration

 

Mode of Action:

  • The copper ions of “Champion 77%WP” linked to fatty acids or other organic molecules in plants. The spray solution is actually a suspension of copper particles, and those particles persist on plant surfaces after the spray dries.
  • Copper ions are gradually released from these copper deposits each time the plant surface becomes wet. The gradual release of copper ions from the copper deposits provides residual protection against plant pathogens. At the same time, the slow release of copper ions from these relatively insoluble copper deposits reduces risks of phytotoxicity to plant tissues.
  • Copper ions denature proteins, thereby destroying enzymes that are critical for cell functioning. Copper can kill pathogen cells on plant surfaces, but once a pathogen enters host tissue, it will no longer be susceptible to copper treatments. Thus, “Champion 77%WP” sprays act as protectant fungicide/bactericide treatments, but lack post-infection activity.
