Cuprous oxide as an alternative to copper oxychloride

Copper oxychloride has been added to the FSC HH (Forestry Stewardship Council) (highly hazardous) list and as of June 2016 will no longer be allowed to be used in FSC certified nurseries without a derogation. A derogation is basically a permit to use under certain conditions and one of these conditions is always to investigate non-HH alternatives.
