TELONE™ Soil Fumigant

Growing better crops.
Yielding better value.

TELONE™ II soil fumigant is a pre-plant soil fumigant for control of all major species of nematodes, including root-knot, lesion, stubby-root, dagger, ring and cyst. TELONE™ II is injected into the soil as a liquid and immediately converted to a gas, creating a zone of protection around developing roots. As a fumigant, TELONE™ moves throughout the soil profile without requiring water or incorporation for movement.

This product delivers effective pest control against:

Centipede // Cricket // Nematode // White Mold // Wireworm

Application flexibility

TELONE™ II soil fumigant can be applied broadcast, in-row and at bedding up. The application flexibility does not stop there as it can also be applied on bare ground or under tarp.

Efficiency and Variety

By increasing root health and strength, TELONE™ II allows for more efficient uptake of water and fertilizers. TELONE™ II also allows growers to plant varieties and a wider variety of rootstocks.


Dual-injection application allows farmers to adjust rates of TELONE™ II and chloropicrin when applied together, on the go, based on nematode infestation levels and disease presence. The result is more precise, efficient and effective application of both products applied together.

How & Why It Works

The quality and quantity of a crop depends, to a large extent, on what happens in the soil. The roots provide plants with nearly all of their nutrient and moisture requirements, yet are extremely susceptible to danger from soil pests, like nematodes, soil disease, and soil pests. Soil fumigation protects roots. TELONE™ II is a soil fumigant injected into the soil, then it quickly evaporates into a gas. The vapors move through the soil pores and eventually dissolve into soil water. The movement through the soil is fundamental and essential to the effectiveness of fumigation for pest control. TELONE™ II is a true soil fumigant, meaning it can move through the soil on its own, not requiring additional moisture, and therefore yields more consistent results as when compared to other nematicides. TELONE™ II provides outstanding pest control because it creates a large zone of protection around the root zone.

Additional TELONE™ Products

TELONE™ C35 Nematicide | Fumigant

Control of all major species of nematodes

TELONE™ C-35 soil fumigant and nematicide controls all major species of nematodes, including root-knot, lesion, stubby-root, dagger, ring, pin and cyst nematodes. The addition of chloropicrin allows TELONE™ C-35 to have significant activity on soil diseases, such as Fusarium, Verticillium, pink root, Phytophthora and Pythium. TELONE™ C-35 can be applied broadcast, in-row and at bedding up. It can also be applied on bare ground or under tarp.

TELONE™ EC Fumigant

Parasitic nematode control for drip irrigation systems

TELONE™ EC is a liquid fumigant for the preplant treatment of soil that controls plant parasitic nematodes and certain other soil pests. It moves through the soil in the applied water, reaching the soil where nematodes live, and leaves a zone of protection to allow plants to get off to a fast, healthy start. TELONE™ EC soil fumigant is labeled for use on most crops that utilize drip irrigation and provides superior efficacy on nematodes. TELONE™ EC is easy to apply by injecting in the drip tape and ensures the knockdown of pests in first crop along with a herbicide program.
