Research Project: Assessing Potential for Nitrous Oxide Generation from Anaerobic Soil Disinfestation

Location: Subtropical Plant Pathology Research

Project Number: 6034-22000-041-12
Project Type: Specific Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Jun 01, 2014
End Date: Jun 30, 2017

Objective:
To move research forward by establishing risk potential for the generation of nitrous oxide during anaerobic soil disinfestation for pest control.

Approach:
Field research trials will be conducted to determine if nitrous oxide is a significant concern during anaerobic soil disinfestation. Research will include fumigant standards and will test multiple organic inputs. Trials will be designed to optimize for gas collection.
