Based on requests from several of our clients, Osorno has formulated two agricultural fungicides. We developed Fungicide #1 after observing the effects of specific chemicals on wheat seeds, vine leaves, and other plants.
Agriculturalists have used lime & copper compounds as fungicides for more than a century.
The best known copper-based fungicide is undoubtedly “Bordeaux mixture”, which is a mix of dissolved copper sulfate (“bluestone”) in a hydrated lime slurry.
Unfortunately, this mixture has its drawbacks, leading researchers to develop fungicides based on biocidal chemicals or micro-organisms that inhibit fungi and their spores.
In contrast, Osorno's fungicides comply with the requirements of organic agricultural production.
Osorno sells Fungicide #1 (a blend of hydrogen peroxide and peracetic acid) for treating mildew. With a single application, Fungicide #1 destroyed mildew that developed on grapes before they were harvested in a client's vineyard.
Fungicide #1 leaves behind no residue and is safe to use up until harvest.
We sell Fungicide #1 in 4 L bottles, or in 20 L delcans upon request.
You must dilute 1 L of Fungicide #1 with 100 L of water, or 1/2 gal with 50 gal water.
Osorno sells Fungicide #2, a fungicide and algaecide containing CuproCitrol™, an original recipe of classic copper-based additives. This product safely and effectively combats fungi in agricultural applications and algae in ponds.
We sell Fungicide #2 in 4 L bottles or in 20 L delcans upon request.
You must dilute 1 L of Fungicide #2 with 100 L of water, or 1/2 gal with 50 gal water.
