Ingredients

We develop products using natural ingredients. Each product has one or more components, each of which is of natural origin and has the same purpose: to help plants make effective use of their own immune systems. We therefore do not add chemicals to treat the plant but provide the plant with the boost it needs to do this naturally. And with result!

Each of our ingredients is produced using our own production method. As a result, the dissolved particles do not lump together and the product remains stable for two or more years after production. The metal particles also stay stuck to the leaves like magnets. Copper salts (incl. copper oxychloride) are washed away after rain or sprinkling, but the PlantoSys copper particles in Cuprum remain on the leaf and keep on dispersing ions, extending their plant-strengthening properties.

The ingredients described below form the natural basis of all our products. Depending on the crop for which the product has been developed, the application method and/or other practical requirements, they are applied alone or in combination.

List of ingredients

  • Salicylic acid

    All plants produce salicylic acid (SA) following infection by a bacteria and/or biotrophic fungi. SA is a plant hormone, not an antibody, and triggers the production of defence proteins in the plant.
  • Colloidal silver

    Colloidal silver (Ag) strengthens the plant’s natural defence against bacteria. It is an ethylene blocker, working like a sunscreen on a sunny day.
  • Micro copper

    Micro copper (Cu) strengthens the plant’s natural defence against fungi.
  • Micro manganese and zinc

    Micro manganese (Mn) and zinc (Zn) strengthen the plant’s natural defence against insects, including Drosophila suzukii, red spider mite and wasps.
  • Silicon (orthosilicic acid)

    Silicon (Si) strengthens the leaf cellular walls and leaf surface, considerably reducing the chance of fungal infections in the leaf.
  • 97% Lime

    Lime (Ca(OH)2) raises the pH of a crop to more than 12, causing physiological changes to take place on the surface of the plant.
