History of Bordeaux

Bordeaux was first used in France in the 18th century, and has been the back-bone of disease control in vineyards for centuries.

In more recent times, the number of crops relying on this product have increased, and despite it's relatively old technology and active ingredient, it has remained one of the most reliable tools for disease control.
