This project was established in East Central NC originally in 2021 to evaluate the effects of TELONE ™ II and Chloropicrin (PIC) on nematode suppression in Tobacco, Granville wilt suppression, and tobacco yield and quality. Is it possible to stagger harvest between the products?Read More
This project was established in East Central NC originally in 2021 to evaluate the effects of TELONE ™ II and Chloropicrin (PIC) on nematode suppression in Tobacco, Granville wilt suppression, and tobacco yield and quality. Is it possible to stagger harvest between the products?
We established 2 multi-year field trials in Fresno County California, one trial taking place in Firebaugh, and the other in Caruthers, both led by TriCal PCA-Victor Rodriguez to examine the benefits of TELONE™ and Chloropicrin providing early rootstock establishment..
The Adelaide Plains region, outside of Adelaide, South Australia, is the largest greenhouse growing region in the southern hemisphere. This region suffers from soil pest & disease issues that greatly reduce the yields and quality of the crops grown.
The demand for sweet potatoes across the United States has increased dramatically for the last several years. Fumigation of the soil can greatly increase their yield and control pests like nematodes.
TriClor and TELONE™ fumigant treatments continue to demonstrate significant reduction in total plant-parasitic nematode (PPN) density across all 3 seasons compared to untreated control, shown in the graphic below.
By utilizing pre-plant fumigants in a vineyard – such as TriClor (Chloropicrin) and TELONE™ II (1,3-Dichloropropene) – growers can reduce the total parasitic nematode pressure within the soil where the grapes are being planted.
In California, nematodes can significantly impact crop production. They cause considerable damage to plant roots, disrupting the uptake of water and nutrients, resulting in reduced crop yield. For pre-treatment control soil fumigation is a vital management tool for growers.
It was an honor to get invited by one of our Scientists, Dr. Kristi Sanchez. It was remarkable to see her in action out in the field, doing what she does best: helping diagnose nematode issues and providing support to growers throughout the Central Valley.
Agricultural diseases can decimate your crop if you don’t take the proper preventative steps. Nematodes and other soilborne diseases need to be stopped in their tracks—and the right soil fumigation techniques can make all the difference.
Nematodes are incredibly diverse, thread-like roundworms that live in a wide range of soils. Mostly microscopic in size, nematodes have varied methods of survival. A majority of nematodes are microbial feeders found in the soil. They can feed on diverse food sources, including bacteria, fungi, and even other nematodes!
Cucumbers are one of the most pest and disease susceptible vegetable crops and are sensitive to Nematodes, Rhizoctonia and Pythium levels. Moderate numbers of each detected on the SARDI DNA tests will cause economic damage and result in yield losses.
A long time ago, when Sam stopped using Telone for 4 years, he found that nematodes and diseases increased and nematicides did not control the cycle of nematodes. With further agronomy testing they found the exact and were able to tackle the issue head on.
