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

Location: Citrus and Other Subtropical Products Research

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

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

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

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.
