Orchard Soil Sterilisation using Chloropicrin reduces the effect of Specific Apple Replant Disease.

 Also known as Soil Sickness this problem is  caused by the the pathogenic organisms present in the soils in most mature orchards.

Lasting up to 20 years, these pathogens reduce the root growth of young fruit trees when the site is replanted.

Poor root development leads to reduced vegetative growth and poor fruit yields throughout the life of the replanted orchard.
