Copper sulfate is used in construction, agriculture, food industry, medicine, metalworking.

In construction, it has found application for removing rust stains, salt release from plastered and brick surfaces. It is also used as an antiseptic to prevent wood decay.

In agriculture, it is used as a fungicide, antiseptic and copper-sulfur fertilizer. This is an excellent microfertilizer to compensate for the lack of copper in the soil (applicable to peatlands where there is little copper). Copper sulphate is also used for the prevention and treatment of diseases of fruit, fruit and berry, vegetable plants and urban green spaces, for the control of insect pests. As a fungicide, it is used for the preparation of additives, premixes for agricultural and domestic animals. Before sowing grain crops, they are treated with copper sulphate to eliminate mold spores.

In the food industry, copper sulphate (II) 5-aqueous is used as a food additive E519, as a preservative and color fixer. In medicine – for the manufacture of mineral paints. In the metalworking industry – to detect manganese, zinc, magnesium in stainless steel and aluminum alloys.
