Fumigation and planting of pineapples

Fumigation and planting of pineapples

Information Bulletin, Citrus and Subtropical Fruit Research Institute (129): 2

Following pre-plant soil fumigation with EDB at 220 litres/ha or D-D (dichloropropane-dichloropropene) at 300 litres/ha, Smooth Cayenne pineapples were planted either immediately afterwards or up to 21 days later, and the effects were assessed on plant weights 11-54 weeks later and yields at harvest. Planting shortly after soil fumigation reduced the initial rate of growth, but after 40 weeks there was little difference between treated plants and untreated controls.
