Chelated Copper is much more effective than copper sulfate to combat planktonic, chara and filamentous algae in fresh waters. As opposed to Copper Sulfate, it stays suspended in the water instead of sinking to the bottom. Copper Sulfate uses more elemental copper than chelated copper to get the job done.
- Chelated copper treated water may be used for fishing, swimming, irrigating turf or ornamental plants, or watering livestock after treatment.
- Chelated copper targets the algae biomass on multiple modes of action
- Chelated copper is effective in high alkaline waters (copper sulfate is not).
- Chelated copper is more effective than copper sulfate in colder temperature waters.

Cutrine Plus Algaecide is used for the control of pond or lake algae, such as the Planktoic Algae, Filamentus Algae, and Chara.
It uses copper ethanolamine, a chelated form of copper, to kill a broad spectrum of algae. It contains no corrosive chemicals so it is a lot safer for the environment than products containing copper sulfate..
Algae in lakes and ponds can be a serious problem, especially during the summer months. Maintaining a healthy balance in the ecosystem (between water, fish, flora and fauna) in the pond is important.Learn More

Argos Algaecide with 9% chelated copper controls a broad range of algae such as Chara Algae, Filamentous Algae, and Planktonic Algae. Compared to Cutrine Plus Algaecide, this formulation is much safer for the environment that copper sulfate. In fact, any body of water treated with Argos may be used for fishing, swimming, livestock watering, irrigating turf, or further potable water treatment after treatments.
Use at the average rate of 1-2 gallons per surface acre (see label for PPM Copper and Depth of Feet)Learn More
