Controls a wide range of diseases on fruit, vegetables and ornamentals. Yates® Liquid Copper is an easy to use, broad-spectrum, copper fungicide and bactericide.
The unique formulation provides real advantages over conventional copper fungicides - the ultra-fine particle size provides a denser, more impenetrable protective barrier to disease infection, without the unsightly blue residue.
It doesn't crystallise in the sprayer tank like conventional copper options, so it won't sludge up your spray nozzle.
It's easy to use and 100% water soluble - Yates® Liquid Copper forms an 'aquagel' with its own built-in spreading and sticking ability.
Yates Liquid Copper Fungicide is a preventative spray and generally should be applied before or at the first sign of disease. Many diseases infect plants before symptoms occur, applications should preferably begin before symptoms appear.
Shake the bottle well and add the required amount with water as per the detailed instructions on the back of pack, to a garden sprayer or watering can. Make sure that the spray is kept agitated during use and must be applied within 1 hour of mixing the prepared spray solution.

|HOW TO APPLY|
|Roses & Ornamentals||Leaf spot, black spot (roses)||5mL||Spray at first sign of disease and repeat every 10 -14 days as required. Do not use on copper-sensitive varieties. To test apply 2 sprays at 14 day intervals.|
|Beans (including Broad Beans)||Common blight||5mL||Spray at first sign of disease or as a preventative spray. Repeat every 7-14 days as required.|
|Bacterial brown spot||Spray within 21 days of emergence and repeat every 10-14 days depending on disease pressure.|
|Chocolate spot, rust||Spray at first sign of disease. Repeat every 10-14 days as required.|
|Halo blight||Spray every 10-14 days from when the plants are 15-30cm high, while conditions favour disease.|
|Beetroot||Downy mildew, rust||5mL||Spray every 10-14 days from seedling stage until maturity as required.|
|Brassicas (incl. Broccoli, Brussels Sprouts, Cabbage, Cauliflower)||Downy mildew, black rot, peppery leaf spot, ring spot||5mL||Begin spraying from the seedling stage until maturity. Spray every 10-14 days depending on weather conditions and disease pressure. Do not use on copper-sensitive varieties.|
|Capsicums||Bacterial spot, bacterial canker||5mL||Spray at first sign of disease. Repeat every 7-14 days as required. This product will reduce the spread of bacterial canker but will not control seed or soil borne infection.|
|Carrots||Leaf spot||5mL||Spray at first sign of disease. Repeat every 10-14 days as required.|
|Celery||Leaf spot||5mL||Spray every 7-14 days.|
|Cucurbits (incl. Cucumbers, Melons, Pumpkin, Zucchini, Squash)||Downy mildew||4mL||Spray when vines are developing or when disease is expected. Only use as a preventative spray. Product will not be effective once the disease is established.|
|Angular leaf spot, bacterial leaf spot||5mL||Spray at first sign of disease. Repeat every 7-10 days as required.|
|Lettuce||Downy mildew, bacterial leaf spot, anthracnose||3mL||Spray at first sign of disease. Repeat every 7-10 days as required. Do not use on copper-sensitive varieties.|
|Onions||Downy mildew||5mL||Spray at first sign of disease. Repeat every 10 days as required.|
|Parsnips||Leaf spot||5mL||Spray at first sign of disease. Repeat every 10 days as required|
|Peas||Ascophyta blight, bacterial blight||5mL||Spray at first sign of disease. Repeat every 10-14
days as required.
|Potatoes||Early blight / target spot||5mL||Spray from crop emergence to maturity every 7-10 days as required. Ensure that both upper and lower leaf surfaces are sprayed.|
|Rhubarb||Crown rot||5mL||Dip rhubarb crowns before planting|
|Downy mildew||Spray every 14 days from seedling stage until maturity as required.|
|Silver beet||Downy mildew||5mL||Spray from seedling stage to maturity every 10-14 days as required. Do not use on copper-sensitive varieties.|
|Spinach||Downy mildew||5mL||Spray at first sign of disease and repeat every 10-14 days as required.|
|Tomatoes||Bacterial spot, bacterial speck, bacterial canker||5mL||Apply as a preventative spray every 7-10 days. Ensure thorough leaf coverage and that both upper and lower leaf surfaces are covered. This product will reduce the spread of bacterial canker but will not control seed or soil borne infection.|
|Early blight / target spot||Begin spraying shortly after transplanting when plants are 15cm high and before symptoms appear. Apply every 7-10 days as required. Ensure that both upper and lower leaf surfaces are sprayed.|
|Late blight / Irish blight||Spray at first sign of disease and repeat every 10-14 days.|
|Apples||Black spot (scab)||5mL||Spray at green tip before tips are 1cm.|
|Apricots||Shot-hole, freckle||5mL||Spray at budswell prior to signs of leaf/bud movement. Also spray once after harvest.|
|Bacterial gummosis||6.25mL||Autumn: spray at 25-50% leaf fall and again at 90-100% leaf fall. Winter: spray in mid winter.|
|5mL||Spring: spray at first sign of bud movement. Repeat application 7-10 days later.|
|3.25mL||Spray 1 week after petal fall. Repeat 7-10 days later. These sprays control the high leaf population of the bacteria in mid to late spring.|
