Kocide® 2000 is a product from DuPontTM that offers numerous benefits. The characteristics of the copper hydroxide used in Kocide® 2000, combined with formulation technology, produce a product that is more efficiently retained on the plant surface. Kocide® 2000 provides a high level of activity – more than 2.5 times the bioavailable copper of Kocide®DF. Small sub-micron particles mean better leaf coverage,
optimizing the performance of the product without resulting in phytotoxicity. Kocide® 2000 provides excellent residual control, even after rainfall. It can be applied at lower rates (0.32 kg/ac to 0.65 kg/ac) than previous formulations, meaning less copper in the environment.  Kocide® 2000 wets immediately and disperses completely as soon as it is added to the spray tank. It mixes quickly and easily with excellent dispersion and better, longer suspension.
