Marketable Carrots (quality fit for market versus crop damage)

The untreated Verano block showed signs of being quite infested with root pathogens. The quality of this block was by far the worst of the tested areas. This was in spite of conventional preventative action. The quality and yield of the carrots in ExploGrow™ treated Verano block is a triumph under these circumstances.

On this particular farm, the soils have high concentrations of crop damaging Root-knot Nematodes.
