About Soil Fumigation

Soil fumigation is an effective way to control soil-borne organisms, pests, and diseases such as nematodes, fungi, bacteria, insects, and weeds.

During the fumigation process, fumigants dissolve into the film of water surrounding soil particles as they move through the soil airspace, where nematodes and disease-causing organisms (pathogens) live.

Pre-plant soil fumigation, is commonly relied upon to mitigate the risk of crop loss. With the right conditions and correct application, your soil will remain pest-free and produce consistent, better results.

Our machines

Leicester’s offer precise application of soil fumigants, through use of the latest GPS guidance systems and computerised flow control systems installed on its tractors. Bringing the safest and most technologically advanced application service to our customers.

Why fumigate soil?

Limited crop rotations and intensive soil use promote the increased occurrence of certain soil-borne pathogens, pests and weeds. Even the slightest attack by pathogens can reduce yield and quality. Control of soil-borne pests will increase plant aesthetics, plant quality and vigor, crop yields, and ultimately profitability.
