    Hello Mark,

    I have a limited vineyard with only three lines with grapes, mainly Frontenac. I intend to protect them with a solution of copper sulfate. I received different suggestions focused on its concentration. Please, are you so kind to tell me what about the best way to use it? I bought a bag of 40 lb. from our local farmer co-op, with an indication that is different from a small container I have from a nursery plant shop.

    Thank you,
