Mustard Meal and Anaerobic Disinfestation Alternatives to
Fumigation for Replant Disease
Replant disease can cost growers more than $70,000 per acre in lost returns when it is not treated for. We initiated field-scale trials in 2017 to test alternatives to fumigation including mustard meal bio-renovation and anaerobic disinfestation. Join us to see the results in the orchard.
