Tri-Base Blue

Trusted by Aussie Growers for 20 years

For over a century, Nufarm Australia has been helping growers improve their crops through innovations like the superior copper formulation, Tri-base Blue.
Providing exceptional control and extended protection against various fungal diseases, Nufarm’s Tri-Base Blue’s unique liquid formulation makes measuring and pouring easy and dust-free. The perfect solution for use as an alternative to the traditional copper products, Nufarm’s Tri-Base Blue has an excellent crop safety profile. Plus with great storage properties and convenient 10L packs and 640L shuttles,  Tri-Base Blue should be in every growers’ shed.

Nufarm’s Tri-Base Blue uses less applied copper & provides superior efficacy on key diseases such as Downy Mildew (Figure 1) compared with other copper sources such as cupric hydroxide. Reduced copper loading in the soil and on the plants, coupled with more protection makes Nufarm’s Tri-Base Blue a copper like no other.

 
Plant surfaces need to have a complete coverage of copper fungicide to defend the plant against infection. Copper fungicides work by preventing spore germination and can act at several stages in the fungus development. Any plant surface left untreated remains a potential disease infection site. Coverage is far more important than the quantity of actual copper on the plant surface.

The key to successful disease protection with copper is two words – foliar coverage.

The ultra fine particles of Nufarm’s Tri-Base Blue, where 75% of particles are less than one micron, provide a greater surface area than alternative products with larger particles. This allows the copper to exert its full potential against fungi and bacteria.
