The mode of action of copper as an active substance in plant protection products is of high importance. As a so-called multi-side inhibitor, copper is an essential component of sustainable integrated crop protection systems of many economically important crops worldwide.

The well-known trade names Funguran®, Cobox®, Cuprozin® and Patrol represents high-quality formulations based on copper hydroxide and copper oxychloride made in Germany.

Both, as a single application and as a reliable mixing partner with other plant protection products and fertilizers, our products are your tool for reliable and high-quality yields.

Copper Hydroxide

The unique efficacy of copper hydroxide-based crop protection products results from the fine, elongated and predominantly acicular structure of the particles.

This particle shape provides optimal distribution, as well as permanent contact of the crystals to the treated surface. Together with other carefully selected ingredients, this results in continuous release of copper (II) ions and excellent rainfastness. Various products are available as WP, WG and SC formulation. Spiess-Urania Chemicals GmbH is your partner for crop protection solutions in organic farming.
