Chloropicrin application increases production and profit potential for potato growers

Chloropicrin was first used on potato in 1940 as a wireworm suppressant and then in 1965 as a verticillium suppressant. Farmers stopped using it on potato for many years, but over the last decade, it has seen a resurgence in popularity — and for good reason, according to Chad Hutchinson, director of research at TriEst Ag Group, Inc., in his webcast ‘Chloropicrin Soil Fumigation in Potato Production Systems.’
