Pre Plant soil fumigation has been proven to have a significant positive influence on tuber production. The STRIKE™ product line is currently one of the most effective soil fumigants to manage soil- borne fungal pathogens in potato production. Research and on-farm trials have demonstrated the wide-spectrum of fungal pathogens, bacterial pathogens, and plant parasitic nematodes suppressed by STRIKE™ formulations. Among the most damaging pests in potato production are Verticillium wilt (Verticillium spp.), black dot (Colletotrichum coccodes), common scab (Streptomyces scabies), and lesion nematode (Pratylenchus spp.). Strike fumigation works to manage all these diseases and pests that negatively affect quality and yield production.
STRIKE™ suppresses the following soil-borne diseases and pests:
- Common Scab

The STRIKE™ family of products are the most effective soil fumigants to manage soil-borne pathogens in root crops such as onions. STRIKE™ fumigation allows plant roots to develop in a healthy environment where disease pressure is managed. This allows young crops to develop healthy root systems, which leads to earlier bulb growth, a longer harvest window, and a more efficient use of water and nutrients. The results are vigorous, healthy roots that provide growers the highest yields and quality in onion production.
STRIKE™ products provide outstanding pest control for carrots because soil fumigation creates a large zone of soil around the root area where diseases are suppressed. No current cultural practice in carrot production provides more benefits than soil fumigation. Fumigation with Strike products allows plant roots to develop in an environment where nematodes and certain soil-borne diseases are managed. This results in extensive, healthy root systems, which lead to earlier harvestable root growth, a longer harvest window and better utilization of nutrients and water.
A vigorous, healthy root system gets the crop off to a superior start resulting in larger, quality crop yield. Let us show you how effective the STRIKE™ formulations can be on your Carrot Crops.
