InLine® soil fungicide and nematicide is a multipurpose, liquid fumigant only for use in drip irrigation systems. InLine offers superior control of nematodes and provides the best foundation for disease management in preplant treatments of soil. For more information, such as references to symphylans and wireworms, see the product label for more information.

  Telone® II soil fumigant is a preplant soil fumigant for control of all major species of nematodes, including root-knot, sting, lesion, stubby-root, dagger, ring, and cyst nematodes. Telone II is injected into the soil as a liquid and immediately converts to a gas, resulting in a nearly nematode-free zone that allows tomatoes to thrive. As a fumigant, Telone moves throughout the soil profile on its own, rather than requiring water or incorporation for movement. View the product label for more information. 
 

Telone® EC soil fumigant is an emulsifiable version of Telone II for control of all major species of nematodes. Special emulsifiers in the formulation allow Telone EC to mix with water and be applied through drip irrigation lines. The fumigant moves through the soil in the applied water, reaching the soil particles where nematodes live, and resulting in a nearly nematode-free zone that allows tomatoes to get off to a fast, healthy start. View the product label for more information.

 

Telone® C-17 soil fungicide and nematicide has fungicidal properties that can help you manage diseases such as Granville wilt and black shank and control nematodes at the same time. Telone C-17 improves uniformity of plant height by moving as a gas both laterally and vertically through the soil, reaching target pests in the process. View the product label for more information.

Telone® C-35 soil fungicide and nematicide is a true multipurpose fungicide and nematicide that is superior on nematodes and provides the best foundation for disease management. Telone C-35 is injected into the soil and then converts into a gas, which results in a nearly nematode-free zone that allows tomatoes to thrive. Visit the product label for more information.
 

Pic-Clor 60 fungicide and nematicide provides an additional option for tomato producers for the control of nematodes.
