Some field crops require broadcast applications of fumigants for nematode control. But the tap root of a sugarbeet allows growers to concentrate the fumigant right in the seed row. In-row applications of Telone are commonly used in Idaho, Nebraska, Colorado and Wyoming.

"Telone remains the standard for nematode management," said Brad Young, Telone specialist based in Idaho. "The in-row applications allow lower rates to be used, which makes treatment more economical."

In-row applications of Telone can be made with a
variety of equipment.
