NORDOX products are approved worldwide for use in cocoa for disease protection and as a slow release source of micronutrients.
Disease Prevention & Control
NORDOX copper products applied at relatively low rates have been shown to prevent and control most common bacterial and fungal diseases in cocoa:
- Black Pod Disease (caused by Phytopthora palmivora)
- Black Pod Disease (caused by Phytopthora megakarya)
- Frosty pod (Moniliophthora roreri)
- Witches Broom Disease (suppression, Moniliophthora perniciosa)
Our VERNO FG products (Cu, Zn, & Mn) are formulated to correct micronutrient deficiencies and when applied at the right time, these products have been shown to enhance cocoa yield and vigor.
Please Note: Rates and timing of NORDOX and VERNO product applications are based on trials and experience and may vary based on crop size and growing conditions. Please contact your national distributor for updated label information and technical support.
