    ICC®: Ionic Copper

    Role of copper in organisms

    • Copper plays multiple roles in biological systems due to its high redox activity
    • It is a vital element for all live beings because it is part of a variety of proteins which regulate many biochemical processes

    In plants it affects:

    • Photosynthesis and electron transfer via respiration
    • Cell wall metabolic processes
    • Detoxification of drastic forms/radicals of oxygen
    • Ethylene sensing
    • Synthesis of polyphenols

    What is ICC?

    • ICC® (Ionic Copper Concentrate) is a liquid, acidic formulation of concentrated pantahydrated copper sulphate in an ionic cupric form (Cu++)
    • The content of metallic copper in ICC® is 5.2% w/v
    • It is a very effective and fast acting copper fertilizer which is used by both foliar application and fertigation throughout the whole vegetative period at low rates due to its highly drastic Cu++ ions.
    • It is fully soluble in water and it does not form agglomerates, crystals or sediment in the spray solution
    • It can be mixed with the majority of agrochemicals
    • Application rates for foliar applications range from 50-150 ml/hL while for soil applications from 2-8 L/ha, depending on the type of crop, the size and age of plants, and the training system of the crop.
