Biorend Copper is a formulation based on Chitosan and hydrated Copper Penta Sulfate plus an organic chelating base.
Copper has a direct effect on the sanitization of wounds and cuts on plants, such as leaf fall or pruning cuts. This action prevents the entry of wood diseases, both fungal and bacterial. This effect is achieved since copper is also a SAR ion, which induces the activation of indirect response mechanisms to defend against different types of diseases, in what is known as elicitation of the plant’s immune system.
Copper is also an important microelement, which participates in the synthesis of numerous enzymes. In addition to the action of Copper, Chitosan adds the activation of powerful complementary metabolic pathways to those activated by Copper. These complementary pathways converge to produce defense and growth-promoting substances.
Chitosan, in contact with plant tissue, promotes the transcription of defense proteins, such as phytoalexins, which are plant antibodies, as well as anti-stress proteins, which aim to provide stability in photosynthetic activity. and also produce the strengthening of the plant.
