WHAT IS COFRE®?
COFRE® is a nutritive solution based on copper (Cu2+) that provides an excellent penetration and systemy through sap vessels (xylem and phloem), quickly reaching all points of the plant.
COFRE® is complexed with and organic molecule of plant origin, forming a new complex, copper pirrolate, that polymerized forms a set of rings whose structure is known as porphyrin, being chlorophyll precursor .
Copper as a micronutrient is essential for plant metabolism. Its presence in plant tissues allows, among other properties, increase chlorophyll synthesis and enhance the resistance of the plant against various fungi (downy Mildew, Monilia spp., Phytophtora spp., Cycloconium oleaginum, …) and bacteria (Pseudomona, Xantomona, Erwinia amylovora, …) .
MECHANISMS OF ACTION
COFRE® is a special compound that acts as a regulator. It joins the sap flow penetrating plants tissues through the interstitial fluids.
Its formulation contains a copper complex with a strong link, which facilitates the transport of the metal ion into plant tissues, the sap and the cell cytoplasm.
Inside the cell the complex becomes chlorophyl, due to various enzymes and metalloproteins, and this reaches the chloroplasts chlorophyll which is involved in photosynthesis.
During chlorophyll synthesis reactions, the cellular machinery replaces the Cu2+ by Mg2+, and copper remains free in the cytoplasm. Excess of Cu2+ is removed from inside the cell and passes to the sap. The amount of copper that has penetrated into the intercellular spaces in the sap and the cells ensures the copper levels suitable for the development of a healthy plant.
Copper pirrolate Complex
- Fast mobility of copper ions Cu2+
- Unlock of sap vessels.
- Chlorophyll synthesis activation in cells (energy saving).
- Assimilation and systemic through the photosynthetic pathway. (+Synthesis of substances of self-defense – Capsidiol, …)
- Acts as antioxidant capturing free radicals and oxygen reactive species.
- Organic and residue zero product.
