Soil Treatment

EDN™ is a non-ozone-depleting answer to today’s fumigation challenges. Its active ingredient – ethanedinitrile – is an ozone-friendly substance. EDN™ limits the impact of pests and disease in agriculture. It can be used to disinfect soil and control insects, diseases, nematodes, weeds, and other parasites before planting fruit, vegetables, and ornamental crops.

Comparable to currently available soil fumigants in terms of efficacy, EDN™ has a shorter fumigation period with improved penetration characteristics and enables faster plant-back times (14 days). All of which combine to increase productivity and profitability. Follow the product label recommendation to achieve maximum control of the target organisms.

Product Benefits:

  • Viable alternative to ozone-depleting methyl bromide
  • Drop-in replacement for methyl bromide and other currently available fumigants
  • Pre-plant solution to manage risks and protect investments
  • Low environmental impact. EDN™ degrades rapidly in air, soil and water
  • Ease of use with dedicated, innovative dispensing solution
  • No phytotoxicity to plants
  • EDN™ can be applied at low soil temperature
  • Shorter plant-back period than currently available fumigants for easier planning and greater productivity
  • Backed by our extensive consulting, installation, safety training and support services
  • Application of EDN™ can occur using drip/chemigation, shank and broadacre application processes.
