Copper sulphate in gardening.
Used for spraying as a prevention or treatment of various viral and fungal diseases such as scab, late blight, various types of rot. You can also use pest control.
A solution of copper sulfate.
Prepare the solution immediately before use. The container for dilution of the solution should be glass or plastic, but not metal. The solution is prepared by 1% or 3%.In order for the crystals to be dissolved better you need to dilute the vitreous in a small amount of warm water, and then pour water to the desired concentration.
3% solution treats trees and shrubs in the early spring, until the buds bud, as well as this concentration is treated with sick roots, such as roses or gladioluses. Wounds on trunks of fruit trees are also better treated with 3% solution of copper sulfate.
To prepare 1% solution for 10 liters of water is taken for 100 grams of kumene and freshly-squeezed lime. First, in a small amount of warm water dilute sulfur, constantly stirring and adding water to bring up to 5 liters. Lime is extinguished in a small amount of water and we also bring up to 5 liters. Be sure to filter. Now the solution of sulfate should be poured with a thin thread in a solution of lime, stirring constantly. Properly cooked Bordeaux liquid has a heavenly-blue color.
But even if you have properly prepared the solution, the leaves and fruits can still burn out. It is necessary to process plants for processing either in the morning or in the evening. You do not need to exceed the cost per plant, copper accumulates in the soil, which then negatively affects the plants. Under no circumstances can the plant be treated during flowering. The last treatment should be carried out not less than 25 days before harvesting.
Do not forget that copper sulfate, the use of which is necessary throughout the season, refers to antidotes. Be sure to take caution when working with it!
