Several field trials were conducted by CerSAA on 3 nurseries in Italy. Different dosages and lead times of treatment were applied for a number of vegetable crops.
Field trials on six nurseries in Italy were conducted by CeRSAA. Crops: baby leaf lettuce, tomato and strawberry. Control treatments: chemical fumigation and steaming.
In the study, a field trial was conducted at the Keijenberg in Wageningen; on a site with a heavy infestation of Japanese knotweed. 3 sites were treated with the Roots Reset method.
The research focused on the efficacy of Soil Resetting against various types of nematodes and Verticillium dahliae. The research was conducted in collaboration with Agrifirm and Eurofins. The treatments took place with three different dosages and with two different treatment durations (4 and 6 weeks respectively). The control treatment was carried out with Metam Sodium.
In this research, the efficacy of Soil Resetting was tested against Verticillium dahliae and root-knot nematode (Meloïdogyne hapla) at Van Schie Organic Tomato and Pepper Farm. Due to Verticillium and nematode infestation, production had declined to about 55% of normal levels in previous years. The company was in a dead-lock situation.
The research tested the efficacy of Soil Resetting against Tropical Race 4 (TR4) in banana - Fusarium oxysporum f.sp. cubense (Panama disease). This Fusarium poses a serious threat to global banana production. The research was conducted in the Philippines. Several field trials in a banana plantation were applied with 2 treatments on 3 plots.
