What disease does basic copper carbonate cure?
Basic Copper Carbonate is a broad-spectrum protective fungicide that can treat most fungal hazards and bacterial diseases of plants. Basic copper carbonate is generally used before or during the onset of the disease. It should not be mixed with stone sulfur mixture and pesticides that decompose with copper.
The mechanism of action is: after the agent is sprayed on the plant surface, the basic copper carbonate is converted into soluble matter due to the acidic liquid secreted by the plant during metabolism and the acidic substance secreted by the invasion of plant cells, and a small amount of soluble Cu2 +, Cu2 + After entering the germ cell, the protein of the cell is coagulated.
At the same time, Cu2 + can damage certain enzymes in the cell, which prevents the normal progress of metabolism. Cu2 + can also exchange and adsorb with cations (H +, Cd2 +, K +, NH4 +) on the plasma membrane of the cell and poison it.
