Advantages of using Nemasol soil fumigant in your cultivation program


Leaves no quantifiable residues

Nemasol is a solution to replace some of the commonly used herbicides, fungicides, nematicides and insecticides that can persist in soil and crops. Because Nemasol degrades into simple organic compounds, there is no quantifiable pesticide residue left in subsequent cultivated crops.

One-step control of weeds, soilborne diseases and pests

As a broad-spectrum solution, Nemasol acts on a variety of pathogenic organisms with a single application. Nemasol can decrease or even replace crop protection sprays, reducing labor and application costs. Growers can reduce the overall use of other crop protection products which further reduces the risk of residues.

Improved yield and faster turnover rate of land

By rebalancing the soil’s biotope and avoiding the post-plant stress of agrochemicals, Nemasol helps crops establish themselves faster and more vigorously. This results in a faster turnover of fields in year-round cultivating systems.

Pollinator protection

Metam is incorporated into the soil at pre-plant stage and does not interfere with pollinators such as honeybees.
