Abig's Pesticide Peak manufactured by ZAO Selkhozkhimiya (RF) is better known as a broad-spectrum contact fungicide (poorly targeted), but successfully copes with a number of bacterial plant diseases. Its distinctive feature is a very low price for this class of drugs of agrochemistry, less than 500 rubles per liter in the summer of 2018, combined with a rather high efficiency. The degree of safety of the drug allows it to be used in LPH (including with an apiary), without spending on expensive specialized PPE. Registration of this drug in the Russian Federation is valid until 2026.
Pesticide Abig Peak and its active ingredient - copper oxychloride
Not so simple
Experienced private farmers advise newcomers persistently: “May you read these clever names! Do not get fooled by advertising promises! Look, what is DV in this tool (active ingredient), study its properties, and follow them! ”And so it turns out that DV Abig Peak ... has long been a well-known copper oxychloride (HOM) in the form of 40% aqueous suspension (VS) , the formula in fig. Oh (oh) these manufacturers! They just have people to fool! Powder something HOM is sold in the same stores and is cheaper! I will buy it and add it myself (a).
The chemical formula of copper oxychloride and its spatial model.
Not so simple. Abigac Pick's fungicide is just the case when the preparative form means more DV, and the difference in the price of this drug and its original substance is more than justified. "Raisin" in additives: surface-active substance (surfactant) and adhesive. As a result, compared with the XOM, the advantages of Abig Pik are:

Characteristics of the drug
The drug Abiga-peak is used to combat a variety of diseases in plants.
It is a fungicide of contact action, used for the processing of vegetable and fruit crops, ornamental garden and houseplants, grapes, forest plantations. The active substance that forms the basis of the drug is copper oxychloride, at a concentration of 400 grams. per liter of finished solution. How and when can plants be processed?
Abiga-peak is used to treat:
- anthracnose, mildew and oidium on grapes,
- brown and black spot,
- powdery mildew,
- scab on apple and pear,
- white rust,
- late blight,
The effect of active copper on carrier spores leads to inhibition of their growth and development.
Composition, action, purpose
The chemical formula of copper oxychloride (otherwise, copper (II) chloride, copper chloride) - CuCl2· NH2O - salt of hydrochloric acid.
Copper containing compounds in gardening apply against a wide range of pathogens. Abiga-Pik belongs to the category of contact drugs that have a detrimental effect on the spores of fungal pathogens, as well as bacteria.
When interacting with microorganisms, the active substance is converted into the active form of copper, which inhibits the synthesis of amino acids necessary for the synthesis of proteins. As a result, pathogens cannot develop normally and die.
Fungicide is effective against a wide range of plant diseases, since:
- Powdery mildew on different types of crops,
- Many types of spots,
- Late blight,
- Mildew (powdery mildew of grapes),
- Oidium (downy mildew of grapes),
- Scab on pear and apple,
- Varieties of rust and some others.
Without restrictions it is applied to all types of garden, fruit and berry and ornamental plants.
Positive drug properties:
- The best results are obtained in preventive protection and treatment in the initial stage of infection,
- It operates in different weather conditions, even at low temperatures,
- The probability of resistance is relatively small,
- Well fixed on the surface of plants, providing an economical consumption of funds
- Not washed off by precipitation and irrigation,
- Fungicide is easy to prepare.
- The working solution can be stored for a long time, which will not affect its medicinal properties.
One of the greatest advantages is effective use at low temperatures; the effect is observed at +9 0.
To negative features drug can be considered mandatory compliance with the concentration of the solution and the rate of treatment. Over saturation leads to the accumulation of harmful substances in fruits.
What do they have in common?
First, the mechanism of action. Mushrooms, like animals, consume ready-made organic matter. But then they decompose them to mineral and already like plants, use them to build their bodies, because mushrooms and allocated to a special kingdom of nature. HOM does not allow mushrooms to mineralize organics, and they die from exhaustion. This immediately follows the broad spectrum of action of Abig Peak on pathogens, c. including bacteria. Some species of the latter, in their vital activity, “use mushroom technologies,” a number of biologists advocate that they also transfer bacteria from plant organisms to a special kingdom, especially since many of them do very well without photosynthesis.
Another consequence is the complete absence of Abig Peak's phytotoxicity: the physiological mechanisms that it destroys are simply not in plants. However, HOM is quite a chemically active substance, simply - quite caustic. If after processing it turned out to be a dry day, then the home-made sun HOM, drying out, leaves a micro-bud on the leaves and fruits. And if it rains again after that, the plant's organs will be point-damaged. Leaves are not dangerous, they are damaged by other natural causes more. But the fruits may lose marketability, and the content in them of the Far East exceed MPC / MRL, although for HOM it is quite high (2-5 mg / kg depending on the type of vegetable agricultural products).
Use of Abiga-pik fungicide
Processing is carried out by spraying, and it should begin at the first signs of the disease. In this case, the weather does not matter much. The main thing is that the wind should not be stronger than 5 m / s, and the temperature should not be below + 9-11 C.
Important. The drug has low toxicity to insect pollinators. Bees can be released on plants within 12 hours after treatment.
The working solution is prepared strictly according to the instructions, observing the prescribed dosage. All leaves, shoots and fruits of a plant are uniformly processed. Best results are obtained by preventive spraying before flowering and during the period of active growth.
