Field of use

DD® may be applied prior to planting or sowing both outdoor grown crops and crops grown under protection. Depending on the severity of the soil-borne pest or disease problem, full area treatment or strip application can be chosen. The DD® range is perfectly suited to use in a single operation combining soil preparation, fertilization, soil disinfectant, plant or sowing bed shaping, installation of drip irrigation lines and soil sealing with plastic film.

For large field crops, rolling fine crumbled soil after injection and subsequent moistening of the upper soil layers can be substituted for sealing with plastic film.
