Cutrine Plus Algaecide

Cutrine Plus Algaecide

Cutrine Plus with copper ethanolamine complexes is a highly effective algaecide.  Controls a broad range of algae in lakes, ponds, fish hatcheries, irrigation canals, and drainage ditches. Effective on Hydrilla when combined with Harvester Liquid.  Cutrine Plus  is hard water stable. Far less corrosive than other common algaecides.

Begins to work immediately on contact to break down algae's cellular structure. Controls Planktonic Algae in 1 to 2 days, Filamentous Algae in 3 to 4 days.

Early treatment when growth first appears will reduce the amount of Cutrine-Plus  you need for season long control.  Early season treatment will also reduce the amount of dead growth.


Control algae in 1-4 days!

Control will last from several weeks to several months, depending on the type of algae and local conditions. Several applications will typically be required to maintain season long control on Planktonic and Filamentous Algae. Retreat as new growth reappears. Allow 1 to 2 weeks between consecutive treatments.

Heavy, out of control growth may require more than one treatment or physical removal to gain control.  Use under conditions of minimal water flow. For best results, apply early on the morning of a calm, sunny day with water temperature of 60 degrees Fahrenheit or warmer.  Contact time should be at least 3 hours.  Bright sunlight will improve effectiveness.

Use Cutrine Plus  to economically treat surface algae or the entire volume of a pond.

Cutrine Plus is ideal for treating surface growth of Planktonic Algae and floating mats of Filamentous Algae.  In ponds with little or no outflow, long term control of several months can be achieved on Filamentous and Planktonic Algae by treating the entire pond volume.
