Copper Fungicides - Copper Hydroxide


The active ingredient Copper Hydroxide [ Cu(OH)2 ] is a contact fungicide and bactericide with preventive effect against fungal and bacterial infections. According to Commission Directive 2009/37/EC from 23 April 2009, Copper Hydroxide was included in Appendix I of Directive 91/414/EEC as of 01 December 2009.


Copper Hydroxide crystals are present in all pesticides formulated with Copper Hydroxide as fine, elongated and mainly needle-shaped particles.


This particle form firstly results in lasting contact as well as optimal distribution on the plant surface and also ensures a continuous release of the effective copper(II) ions over a long period.


The excellent rainfastness of the products developed on the basis of Copper Hydroxide results from the innovative formulation.


The following Copper Hydroxide-based products are distributed:


    Funguran®-OH 250 SC (250 g Cu / L product)
    Funguran®-OH 300 SC and Patrol® 300 SC (300 g Cu / L product)
