Trace amount of copper that will get into your soil have an antiseptic and antifungal prosperities, helping to protect your plants from dieses and snails, as snails do not like copper.  

Benefits of using copper tools:

Easy-care & energy-saving work

It is customary to call them copper tools, but with a few exceptions, they are made of an alloy of copper and tin ? bronze, where 86%-94% is pure copper. Bronze is a durable but flexible material, therefore the risk of tool breakage is low. If small deformations occure they can be brought back to the original shape without much effort. With regular use copper and bronze tools, become hardier over time. Sharpened edges stay sharp for a long period of time and can be resharpened. Nonetheless we recommend using only some of those tools on stony, hard, uncultivated soils. The copper hoe "Lada" will work good on such terrain. Copper tools are easy to care for, they do not require cleaning as they do not rust. Over time, a natural patina appears on the surface, which is a protective layer, therefore we do not recommend removing it, as it prolongs the life of the tools. However, special care should be taken to avoid contact with vinegar, fruit, uric acid or sulfuric acid to prevent the development of verdigris. We also recommend that you avoid leaving tools in the rain or in full sun.  


Trace elements of copper get into the soil

Copper has antiseptic and antifungal properties, thanks to which it helps protect plants from diseases. When using copper tools, trace amounts of copper get into the soil, having a disinfecting effect, resulting in easier and faster soil revitalization.Copper will also be used by your plants to build cell walls, thanks to which they will grow faster and be more resistant.

In addition, copper also has a positive effect on the surface tension of water in the soil, making it easier for plants to access and absorb water and preventing rapid evaporation.Iron tools can have the opposite effect, as the trace amounts of iron that get into the soil when you use them can form a thin layer of rust that forces water to sink deeper and makes it harder for plants to absorb it. Unlike iron, copper is also non-magnetic and therefore does not destroy the natural stress field of the soil.

However, be careful with copper-based fertilizers. These should only be used on the advice of a specialist, as too much copper in the soil can be problematic for your plants. The problem of supersaturation does not occur even in the case of long-term use of copper tools, as then only trace amounts of this element get into the soil.
