How Are Copper Sulfate Pentahydrate Fine Crystals Used?
Copper Sulfate Pentahydrate Fine Crystals, are regularly used to prevent the development of algae in potable water reservoirs. The salts are employed to control green slime and similar algal scums in farm ponds, rice fields, irrigation and drainage canals, rivers, lakes and swimming pools. Another well-known use for copper compounds is as a molluscicide for the control of slugs and snails.
Copper Sulfate Pentahydrate Fine Crystals also serve as the main ingredient for manufacturing Bordeaux and Burgundy mixtures that are used as algaecides, both on the farm and to ensure safe water supplies. Bordeaux mixtures are employed to adjust and maintain copper deficient soils to optimum levels
