Manica is specialized in the production of copper-based Plant Protection Products : Bordeaux Mixture, Copper Oxychloride, Copper Hydroxide and Tribasic Copper Sulphate, in various formulations. For over seventy years Manica has been marketing its products through a well-known and defined network in Italy and abroad. Recently Manica has invested in the production and formulation of fertilizers with a wide range of micro-elements products, almost all suitable for organic farming.
Manica can offer all its Copper based Plant Protection Products (covered by a European dossiers) in 3 formulations: WP, WG and SC.
Wettable Powders are the most traditional products still widely used for their cost-effectiveness. The formulations and packing have been increasingly improved over time by Manica in order to ensure a safer and easier use by the farmers.
WETTABLE DISPERSIBLE GRANULES
This formulation is produced on two production lines using the “fluid bed technology”. The granules obtained with this technology are uniform, highly porous and easily dispersible. The porosity of the microgranules favours the dispersivity, allowing its complete and immediate dispersion.
Our liquid formulations are characterised by a very fine particle size, a high viscosity and an excellent suspensivity, characteristics that make them stable over time. The liquid formulation makes these products ideal also for treatments that require low volumes of water (100-200 litres/ha).
Copper Oxychloride plays an essential role as a fungicide in many crops. The effectiveness of this copper salt is tested and endorsed by its widespread use throughout the world.all products
Bordeaux Mixture is produced by dissolving Copper Sulphate in water and neutralizing it with lime. Used with a preventive function on many crops, our Bordeaux Mixture can be mixed with the most common Plant Protection Products.all products
Copper Hydroxide based formulations are widely used in agriculture. This salt is characterized mainly by its speed of action. Copper ions are released very fast and therefore there is a high efficient fungicide action.all products
Fungicides can be formulations made with Copper combined with chemical active ingredients or a straight chemical. These products are preventive and curative with a high efficacy against downy mildew and bacteria (when combined with Copper).all products
Manica has a wide range of fertilizers, most of which can also be used in organic farming. These products are studied and developed by our innovative in-house Research & Development laboratory.all products
