Soil fumigation is a critical step to ensure that your orchard gets off to a good start. Chloropicrin is a pre-plant soil fumigant and is the foundation for a successful pest management system. Targeted pathogens include soil-borne diseases and nematodes. Fumigation helps to create a healthy soil environment that allows the plant’s root system to flourish. A healthy root system leads to enhanced trunk, shoot, and canopy growth.
Studies repeatedly show that soils fumigated with Chloropicrin produce healthier roots that allow the trees to establish themselves faster and more uniformly. This allows fertilizer and irrigation inputs to be utilized more efficiently, saving you time and money on the front end, and maximizing your harvest yields and profits on the back-end.
