100% EDTA chelated micronutrient - copper

CHE-COP 7.5% chelated micronutrient is fully chelated and in a form readily available to plants. It is recommended for use as an additive in dry or liquid fertilizer. CHE-COP 7.5% is also compatible with most pesticides. Use the standard jar test to determine compatibility. CHE-COP 7.5% is most effective when placed in the root zone during planting or moved into the soil by irrigation, tillage or rainfall. Soil application is the preferred method of application, although CHE-COP 7.5% may also be used as a foliar spray. It is important to treat the copper deficiency before visual symptoms appear to insure proper yields. Rates of application will vary depending upon the severity of the deficiency, climate, soil type, and method of application. Consult your State Agricultural Experiment Station or Extension Specialists for advice in selecting treatments from this label to best fit local conditions. Avoid applying this product when plants are suffering from moisture stress.

  1. SOIL APPLICATION: CHE-COP 7.5% can be applied alone or in combination with dry or liquid fertilizer for preplant, starter or side dress applications. For most effective treatment of row crops, make soil application in a band at planting time or as a side dressing shortly after planting.

  2. FOLIAR APPLICATION: CHE-COP 7.5%, when diluted with water according to label recommendations can be applied as a foliar spray. Thorough coverage and use of wetting agents often enhance nutrient uptake from foliar sprays. After the correct dilution has been made the spray solution should be buffered to a pH of 6-6.5. CAUTION: Foliar sprays of CHE-COP 7.5% should not be considered a substitute for soil application but rather a supplement or temporary measure to correct the copper deficiency. If label instructions are not followed for foliar application, phytotoxicity may occur.


Copper (Cu)

Directions and Usage

FIELD CROPS (including alfalfa, beans, corn, forage grasses, potatoes, rice, safflower, sorghum and sugar beets):
Soil: Apply 1-3 quarts per acre.
Foliar: Apply ½-1 quart per acre in a minimum of 25 gallons of water.
TREE AND VINE CROPS (including almond, apple, apricot, avocado, berry, cherry, citrus, grape, mango, olive, pear, peach, pistachio, plum and walnut):
Soil: Apply 1-4 quarts per acre. Spread material uniformly around the tree and vines and water in thoroughly for a rapid response.
Foliar: Apply ½-1 quart per acre in a minimum of 25 gallons of water. For all crops except citrus, apply as a dormant spray before bloom, then again after full bloom. For smooth skin fruits (peach, pear, apple, etc.) use the lower rate in 50-100 gallons of water per acre. For citrus, apply as a cover spray in a minimum of 100 gallons of water, anytime except during bloom.
VEGETABLE CROPS (including beans, carrots, celery, corn, cucumbers, lettuce, melons, onions, peas, peppers, potatoes):
Soil: Apply 1-2 quarts per acre.
Foliar: Apply ½-1 quart per acre in a minimum of 25 gallons of water.
