A successful season
starts with TELONE™
Managing nematodes and improving crop health begins in the soil
H
ealthy crops start with healthy
soil. It's a simple equation, but
growers face many obstacles
when it comes to preparing
their soil ahead of planting. One of the
biggest challenges a grower faces is
often unseen, but incredibly destructive
- nematodes. Nematodes are tiny
parasites that can take a significant toll
on your crops by stunting their growth,
leading to reduced plant health, and
ultimately, reduced yield. And because
nematodes are so small, by the time you
realize you have a probably it's already
too late. Microscopic in size, this pest is
tiny but the damage it leaves in its wake
can be epic in proportion. In the United
States alone, the economic impact of
nematodes adds up to an $8 billiondollar
loss annually!
The World's Best Defense
Against Nematodes: TELONE™
So how can a grower defend against
nematodes? Simple - before planting,
prep the soil using TELONE™. TELONE™ is
a pre-plant soil fumigant for controlling
all major species of nematodes -
including root-knot, lesion, dagger,
stubby-root, ring and cyst. TELONE™
creates a zone of protection around
developing roots by injecting into the soil
as a liquid and immediately converting to
a gas. TELONE™ then moves throughout
the soil profile without requiring water or
incorporation for movement, and can be
row-applied or broadcast, for maximum
application flexibility. Nematodes and
pathogenic soil organisms are found
throughout the soil profile making it
difficult for some soil fumigants to
reach, but TELONE™ is injected 18 " deep
into the soil, ensuring even the deepest
nematodes are properly controlled.
Using a TELONE™
+ Chloropicrin
Blend for a One-Two Punch
Depending on what part of the
country you're growing in, you might
want to consider using Chloropicrin in
addition to TELONE™. " Using a blend
of TELONE™ and Chloropicrin offers
growers additional benefits because
while TELONE™ targets nematodes,
Chloropicrin helps combat soilborne
diseases, and is especially helpful in
combatting prunus rootstock disease, "
says Greg Roberson, TELONE™ Specialist
for the Mid-Atlantic Region. TELONE™/
Chloropicrin blends are available
pre-mixed, or the two individual products
can be co-applied at the time of
application. Your TELONE™ Specialist will
work with you to help you analyze your
soil, understand your specific areas of
concern, and create a custom integrated
pest management plan that fits your
specific needs and budget.
The Importance of Soil Health
Using TELONE™ to help control
nematodes before planting also has
additional benefits for growers concerned
with soil health. A groundbreaking
study published in the well-regarded
Phytobiomes Journal reveals that plots
treated with 1,3 Dichloropropene, or 1,3D,
(sold under the brand name TELONE™)
were richer in beneficial bacterial
communities than plots left untreated,
showing that TELONE™ targets
nematodes while letting beneficial
organisms rebound quickly. TELONE™
targets crop-destroying nematodes,
while creating a carbohydrate-rich
environment allowing healthy bacteria to
thrive, resulting in improved soil health.
The study demonstrated that 1,3-D
fumigation did not negatively affect
overall microbial community profiles nor
microbial richness and diversity.
" Soil health is everything. Without proper
soil health, good bacteria and good
fungus can't thrive, and the plant cannot
grow because the root system cannot be
fed, " says Robin Matson, PNW TELONE

Specialist. " Proper soil health enhances
feeding of the root system by making key
nutrients more available and increasing
the plant's ability to capture water. "
Additionally, in December 2021,
University of Florida plant pathologists
released a meta-analysis analyzing the
impact of fumigants on non-target soil
microorganisms. Their report concluded
that, while fumigation can decrease
biological abundance and diversity by 10
to 50% immediately after application,
the effect is temporary: according to
their findings, populations rebounded
within 4-6 weeks following fumigation
with chloropicrin/1,3-D (TELONETM
)
mixtures. That means you can feel good
knowing you're targeting nematodes
while prepping your soil to rebound back
healthier than before.
