Chloropicrin has been effectively controlling soil borne pathogens for 75 years and has been Trinity’s cornerstone product for more than twenty years. Through careful planning and dedication to our business, Trinity has become the world’s largest producer of Chloropicrin.
Chloropicrin is essential for the healthy growth of many crops including cut flowers, fruit and nut trees, grapes, lettuce, melons, peppers, plant nurseries, strawberries, tomatoes, raspberries, and potatoes.This beneficial pre-plant soil fumigant is essential for a robust pest management system, providing growers with an environment that supports increased food production.
Efficacy varies by crop, soil conditions and application methods. For more information or specific data on the efficacy of Chloropicrin, please contact us.
Following injection, Chloropicrin rapidly diffuses through the soil and immediately starts eliminating the target pests and pathogens while creating a healthy soil prepared for planting. Chloropicrin controls these pests and degrades before any crops are planted.
Chloropicrin is superior in performance compared to Metam Sodium and 1,3-Dichloropropene, as it provides a wider control spectrum than either of these products. Additionally, it demonstrates superior nematode control than that of Metam Sodium. It can be used alone, as well as formulated with other products that have high herbicidal properties, and therefore considered the best alternative to Methyl Bromide.
Chloropicrin reduces the need for crop rotation, thus improving land productivity.
The sse of Chloropicrin enables growers to produce a cleaner, greener, and healthier crop that greatly reduces the need for post-plant fertilizers, insecticides, and other pesticides. Chloropicrin also helps reduce water usage, as crop roots grown in treated soil are better developed and more efficient.
Chloropicrin rapidly degrades into carbon dioxide, nitrogenous compounds, and chloride into the soil. These are basic nutrients which not only foster healthy root and plant growth, but feed beneficial microorganisms found in the soil.
- Does not have a significant ecological footprint. In fact, independent analysis determined that Chloropicrin has a negative carbon footprint.
- Does not deplete the ozone layer
- Does not leave residues in plant tissue or harvested produce and vegetables.
- Does not cause cancer, birth defects, or impact fertility.
- IS a lachrymator (inducing transient, mild, and fully reversible sensory irritation; i.e. teary eyes), and thus serves as its own warning agent in the event of exposure.
