In the webinar the presenters briefly review the development and use of anaerobic soil disinfestation (ASD) techniques for control of soil borne pathogens in various crops and regions around the world, and then focus on the current state of knowledge and use of ASD in California primarily for strawberry production. We discuss the latest research findings relating to the efficacy of the technique, mechanisms underlying disease suppression, and our experience with growers using the technique in their own operations.
