Abstract:
A four-year trial was carried out in a district of Marsala, Sicily, to determine the best pre-plant soil disinfestation method using chloropicrin + 1,3-D, metam-sodium, and the eco-sustainable techniques of solarisation and biofumigation, the treatments being applied with and without organic matter. The results showed that soil solarisation with green polythene film could potentially be the best ecological alternative to chemical fumigation for local strawberry cultivation.
