Soil Fumigation Chemicals and Products


Leicester’s soil fumigants control all major species of nematodes, including root knot, lesion, stubby root, dagger, ring, pin, and cyst nematodes. The majority of our fumigants are injected into the soil as a liquid and immediately convert to a gas, creating a zone of protection around developing roots.

Leicesters formulations containing chloropicrin also provide fungicidal activity on many soil-borne diseases. Soil Fumigation is commonly used on a number of crops, including:

  • Vegetables, including potatoes, melons, tomatoes, and strawberries
  • Fruit and nut trees
  • Grapes
  • Nursery crops

As a fumigant, Telone II moves throughout the soil profile on its own, rather than requiring water or incorporation for movement.
