Ag News: A blog to keep you updated on TriCal’s research and other agricultural initiatives. Launch

Just in time for the Almond Conference, we launched a new website to help growers better understand why TriClor is the best replant option for orchard growers. TriClor is a pre-plant soil fumigant and the foundation for a successful pest management system. For orchard growers, TriClor is used to effectively manage many common soil-borne diseases. The new TriClor website highlights the excellent orchard studies and field trials that our researchers, and others, are conducting. There are individual pages for Prunus, Citrus, and Vineyard specific information.

Prunus Replant Disorder, also known as Prunus Replant Disease or PRD, occurs from planting perennial crops into soils where a complex of nematodes and soil-borne diseases are present. Tree replants, even resistant rootstock varieties, are especially prone to replant disorder. Orchards suffering from replant disorder show poor, non-uniform growth and low vigor, often for the entire life of the crop. As root and vegetative growth suffers, so do yields.

PRD affects roughly 60% of Prunus-to-Prunus plantings

When you are getting ready to plant your orchard, the health of the soil in which you’re planting, has one of the most influential impacts on early tree growth and harvest yields. Studies repeatedly show that soils fumigated with TriClor produce healthier roots that allow trees to establish themselves faster and more uniformly. This allows fertilizer and irrigation inputs to be utilized more efficiently, saving time and money on the front end, and maximizing harvest yields and profits on the back-end.

TriClor Manages a Broad Spectrum of Soil-Borne Disease:

  • Prunus Replant Disorder (PRD)
  • Nematodes
  • Phytophthora
  • Root Rot
