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

In order to set themselves up for a bright future, VandenLangenberg and his team worked closely with their Agra Tech’s sales engineer Jim Bergantz. “We started the conversation with Agra Tech back in 2015 and were immediately impressed by Jim Bergantz for his knowledge about the industry. We sat down and put together a plan that had everything we needed. The service that Jim provided was great and he really worked with us to get it done.”
