Abstract: Anaerobic soil disinfestation is an organic amendment-based management practice for controlling soil-borne plant pathogens. It is under study for adoption in tree crops as a replacement for pre-plant chemical-fumigation. Pathogen suppression appears to be carbon-source dependent and mediated by microbes that grow in response to the treatment. I will give an overview of the process of ASD and microbial community responses to ASD implemented with different carbon sources.
