Chemical potentially causing damage to greenhouse tubular/metal components

Our primary supplier of tubular steel has issued a warning about the use of Copper Sulfate to treat algae on greenhouse floors.

Copper Sulfate is produced by dissolving copper in sulfuric acid. The resultant metallic salt (copper sulfates) ions will oxidize the iron and zinc to rust and reduce itself to copper metal. The copper will try and selectively destroy metal surfaces over 50 times faster than common agricultural chemicals such as potash, ammonia or phosphates.

Please ask that you discontinue the use of copper sulfate in your greenhouse.

Agra Tech uses the finest quality tubular steel with acrylic coating for maximum protection. Greenhouse purchasers should be aware that some other greenhouse suppliers are not meeting NGMA standards for coated steel.

Client's Testimonial

This greenhouse is only the beginning of an ongoing relationship with ATI and AgCon that could last for many years. "The marketplace for greenhouses is really taking off, so the game plan is for us to work more with ATI on additional structures after we complete this one," Sawyer said. "We want to pursue this as much as we possibly can, because this technology is becoming so sophisticated and it's only going to grow from there. Before I was working here, I was building clean rooms for 25 years for electronic and pharmaceutical companies, and many of their synergies are very similar. When you take things such as air changes and temperature envelopes into account, both industries are very precise and the end results are indicative of that."
