Crops such as carrots benefit greatly from soil health. All plants benefit from a healthy root system, but in the case of this crop the root is also the usable product of the plant. Healthy roots directly impact yield and profit. And healthy soil supports growth of a healthy root system.
Start cleaning out nematodes and other soil borne diseases and you have healthier plants resisting disease and reducing topical pesticide use. Soils treated with Strike promote healthier plants with stronger root systems that are better at mining nutrients.
Benefits of Soil Fumigation:
- Extensive, healthy root system
- Better utilization of nutrients
- Requires less irrigation
- Longer harvest window
- Greater marketable yields
- Higher crop quality
Common Carrot Diseases and Pathogens:
- Root Knot Nematode
- Root Lesion Nematode
- Common Scab
- Phytophthora Root Rot
- Pythium Root Dieback
Soil fumigants are applied two to four weeks before the crop is planted. Formulations can be used on their own or co-applied with other fumigants. One pass and you are done – helping with residue management for erosion control, reduced application costs, lower pounds of active ingredient which can positively affect bufferzone allowances, a shorter plant back window, and broad-spectrum efficacy.
