Destructive pests such as nematodes, fungi, insects, weeds, and other pathogens can be devastating to a crop. Many common soil-borne issues can be controlled with fumigation.
Soil Fumigation can be generally described as the operation where volatile liquids are injected into the soil profile where they transition to gas. The gas then penetrates the soil by moving through the soil pores coming in contact with the target pathogen. Ultimately, Fumigation objectives are to manage targeted pathogens and promote healthy growth allowing growers to meet their cropping goals: Uniform Crops, Healthy Plants, Maximize Growth Potential, Production, and Economic Return.
