Copper compounds are effective in controlling the main leaf and fruit diseases in the olive tree, being repilo one of the most widespread and with the highest level of affectation.

Currently, however, the European Union has established a limitation on the amount of copper to be applied per hectare and year, which has motivated the search for alternative active materials to copper or formulations with a low content of this element.

The SinerJet®-Cu product manufactured by Bioiberica is an easily assimilable organic solution with a low copper content (5% Cu w/w) whose complexing agents are L-α-amino acids that facilitate the absorption of copper by the tree and its penetration in the reproductive parts of the fungus (spores and conidia).

In a macro-study carried out in several commercial olive grove plots in Andalusia, the efficacy of SinerJet®-Cu in controlling repilo compared to other copper sources or organic fungicides, with a contribution of Cu per hectare, has been demonstrated. much lower than the rest of the treatments, which fits with the current and future environmental limitations in the reduction of this heavy metal.
