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

Bracken is delighted with the project and happy to be working with Agra Tech again. “We go way back with Agra Tech and all of our greenhouses are from ATI, so when the time came for us to discuss this project 18 months ago, ATI was the only company we considered,” he said. “We are very happy with them and their entire team, because they bring so much knowledge and design skills to the table.”
