Champ DP is a protective copper fungicide for the control of many diseases of fruit, vegetables and forestry.

  • Easy mixing and handling
  • Low dust formulation
  • Stops the germination of fungal spores and kills bacteria
  • Multi-site inhibitor and protectant fungicide


Active Ingredient: 375g/Kg Copper as Copper hydroxide


Formulation: Dry prill


Directions for use:

Champ DP may be applied through standard ground or aerial spray equipment. For recommended dilution rates for Champ DP please see label. The volume of water applied per hectare will depend on the crop being sprayed and where necessary should increase during the season to ensure complete coverage of all stages of the crop. In conditions of severe disease pressure use the higher recommended rate and reduce the spray interval.
