Nursery Crops: Strawberry & Raspberry
Seedlings and the young plants in berry nurseries are hit the hardest by disease and pests, and they are in the most need of healthy, fertilized soil where they can develop a nurishing root structure in order to produce a strong, viable plant and a profitable business.
Soil fumigation with Trident controls common fungal diseases including Fusarium, Pythium, Phytophthora, and Cylindrocarpon. Disease and Weed control also addresses intra- and interstate plant shipment requirements for 'clean' plants.
