NEUDORFF'S COPPER SOAP ACTIVE
INGREDIENT : COPPER OCTANOATE 10 %
This product is a patented, fixed copper
fungicide, made by combining a soluble copper fertilizer with a
naturally occurring fatty acid. The copper and the fatty acid
combine to form a copper salt of the fatty acid, known technically
as soap. The copper soap fungicide controls many common diseases
using low concentrations of copper, down as low as 90 ppm. The net
result is an excellent vegetable, fruit and ornamental fungicide. It
decomposes to form soluble copper, and fatty acid, both of which can
be used by microbes and plants. The copper soap is suited for use in
domestic circumstances, both indoors and outdoors.
The National Organics Standards Board of the USA
allows fixed copper to be used in organic crop production for
controlling plant diseases. This product controls diseases of a wide
range of plants, including many vegetable, fruit and ornamentals. As
with most fungicides it acts to protect plants from infection.
Therefore, it is important to have the copper soap on the leaf,
flower or fruit before the pathogen is able to cause an infection.
This product will control fungal diseases such as
: powdery mildew and downy mildew on vegetables and ornamentals,
rust on ornamentals, late blight on potatoes and tomatoes, and
Peronospora and downy mildew on grapes.
Application rates : 500 ml – 1 500 ml per 100 L
water, use the higher dosage under high infection periods.
Packaging : 500 ml, 5 L, 10 L, 25 L

NEUDORFF COPPER SOAP
Description: Soluble concentrate copper fungicide.
Copper Octanoate is a fungicide and bactericide used to
control a wide range of plant diseases. The formulation
known as a soap is made by combining a soluble copper
fertilizer with a naturally-occurring fatty acid. It
decomposes to form soluble copper, and fatty acid, both of
which can be used by microbes and plants. Copper soap is a
preventative spray and therefore it is important to have the
spray covering the leaf or fruit before the pathogen is able
to cause an infection.
Benefits from applying Copper Soap:
Most copper fungicides do not control powdery mildew, the
combination of fatty acid and copper will control both
powdery and downy mildew.
No residue limit, therefore no pre-harvest interval.
Contains only 18g / kg of metallic copper equivalent, as
compared to other copper fungicides:
Copper Oxychloride 500 g / kg
Copper Hydroxide 350 g / kg
Therefore less copper contamination and more sprays can be
sprayed in organic production, where the limitation is 6kg
metallic copper per hectare per season.
No visible residues.
Manufactured from only natural ingredients. It is odourless
and very easy to clean out spray equipment.
Controls a whole range of diseases.
Active Ingredient: Copper Octanoate 100 g / kg.
Directions for use: The spray tank should be filled with
