ORGANIC FUMIGATION OF SOIL Agrojay
Soil-borne pests and pathogens like Verticillium spp., Rhizoctonia spp., Fusarium spp., Pythium spp., Sclerotinia spp., basic scab and scope of nematodes influences the plants in open field developments and ensured Poly house and greenhouse development.
Fumigation is one of the actions to deal with these root related soil-borne pests and pathogens.
Despite the fact that chemicals might be utilized as fumigants, however, naturally, biofumigation has likewise beneficial outcomes to execute above plant foes. The biofumigant crops can be developed to a particular age and stature at that point fused into the dirt to the profundity of 15–20 cm [upper soil profile].
The mustard crop is outstanding amongst other choices to use as a biofumigant to deal with the previously mentioned soil maladies and root hitch nematodes. Mustard is an individual from the brassica family and produces some optional metabolites or biosynthetic compounds. Generally, the “glucosinolates” are the biochemical atoms created by brassica family yields and mustard crop. Isothiocyanate is the final result framed from the glucosinolates when responded with the water present in the soil.
Specifically, the natural compound produce by mustard crop deterioration is known as “Allyl isothiocyanate”. It is said that this compound carries on especially like the industrially accessible soil fumigant organosulfur compound, SODIUM METHYLDITHIOCARBAMATE which is utilized as a dirt fumigant, pesticide, herbicide, and fungicide.
So the mustard crop incorporation into the soil is another natural fumigant and will execute the dirt borne vermin and sicknesses referenced previously. The joining of the mustard crop as a biofumigant has additionally indicated a decrease in harm brought about by wireworm.
