Copper sulfate also known as Cupric Sulfate, Copper Sulfite, chalcanthite or blue vitriol is an inorganic compound made of copper and sulfur combined in the form of a bright blue salt. Mainly used as fungicides and algicides in agriculture and industry.
Copper sulfate uses/applications:
1. Fertilizers and fungicides
Fertilizer grade copper sulfate is often used to increase the copper content of the soil. This helps improve peat and acidic soils, which create the right climate for plant growth. Additionally, copper sulfate can be used to combat mildew, leaf spot, blight and apple scab on fruit trees, nut trees and vegetables.
2. Pest Control
The Bordeaux Copper Sulphate Blend coating can be applied directly to tree trunks to kill snails and slugs, and copper sulphate also prevents mold and fungus from damaging plants.
3. Animal feed
Feed grade copper sulfate powder provides a water-soluble, readily available form of copper, an essential micronutrient for crops. For livestock, copper sulfate is a valuable dietary supplement in mixed feed for cattle, swine, poultry and other livestock. Copper sulfate is used as an additive in animal feed to promote animal growth and correct copper deficiency so that animals receive a balanced diet.
4. Water treatment
Copper Sulphate purifies water and safely eliminates weeds and the odors they cause. As an algicide, it is used in waters from swimming pools to lakes and reservoirs.
Copper sulfate is widely used in the mining industry as a reagent in the flotation process to separate minerals such as zinc, silver and lead.
Its many industrial uses include use as a preservative or additive in glues, paints, leather, synthetic fibers, textiles, hair coloring products, fireworks, chlorophyll, and fruit wrapping paper

What does copper sulfate do?
Due to its chemical composition, fertilizer grade copper sulfate is very beneficial in resolving overly alkaline environments, repairing plant fungi, unwanted root growth, algae growth and more.
The copper in copper sulfate binds to proteins in fungi and algae. This damages the cells, causing them to leak and die. In snails, copper disrupts the normal function of skin cells and enzymes.
Using tips on fertilizer grade copper sulfate
When using copper sulfate over large areas of land or water, be sure to follow the directions for the type of copper sulfate you are using. Different forms, such as liquids and powders, will have different measurements depending on the area in which they are used.
When handling copper sulfate, boots, gloves and goggles should always be worn to minimize the risk of exposure or ingestion.
