Tuber Crops such as carrots, potatoes and onions benefit greatly from soil fumigation. All plants benefit from a healthy root system, but in the case of these tuber crops the root is also the usable product of the plant. Ensuring that your soil is free of pest and pathogens will directly increase your crop yield and your overall profit.
Soil Fumigation has a significant positive influence on tuber production and Chloropicrin is one of the most effective soil fumigants to manage soil-borne fungal pathogens in carrot production. Research and on-farm trials have demonstrated the wide-spectrum of fungal pathogens, bacterial pathogens, and plant parasitic nematodes suppressed by soil formulations.
Douglas Ag works to manage all these diseases and pests that negatively affect quality and yield production.
