Soil Borne Diseases

Last year was one of the wettest years on record. What that means is that the amount of disease pressure was at alarmingly high levels for longer periods of time than we would typically have to deal with. One of the most common complaints we heard about here at Fertrell was the diseases and how bad they were and how we could help contain the issue. A fair amount of what we were dealing with were the soil borne diseases. To which there are several types that can be substantial damage to both yield and quality. Nearly all of these can make or break a produce growers season if let unchecked. There are different types of soil borne diseases and I want to familiarize you with them and how we at Fertrell can help deal with them.

Preparing your Orchards

Growing peaches in the Northeast organically has presented a challenge to orchardists for years. Peaches, in my opinion, are the perfect example of what it means to farm organically. It is all about preventing a problem rather than reacting to one when it arrives. The trouble with growing peaches is that typically by the time you see an issue, it is already too late to fix it. Here at Fertrell we realize the hardships that growers are having with not just peaches but apples, stone fruits, and grapes as well and we’ve worked hard to figure out a complete program to give the farmer’s a fighting chance to produce these commodities organically.
