Soil resetting: a Dutch approach with a focus on reproducible results

H. Meints
Soil resetting is a patented approach of anaerobic soil disinfestation (ASD) that uses carbohydrates and proteins as a probiotica that is called Herbie. Herbie products were discovered in 2007 in the Netherlands. Due to disappointing reproducible research results in Holland with carbon driven ASD and biofumgiation it has met increasing interest from researchers, politicians and farmers since 2009. It is a chemotrophic crop rotation system using soilborne communities to overcome both soilborne diseases and non pathogenic replant fatigue. Ensuring (intensive) continuous cropping systems in a fully organic way. After 7 years of cooperation with Wageningen University Research, results of research programs from 2009 on will be addressed. It concerns an increase in reproducible results with ASD, shortening the ASD application time from 6 weeks to 5 days, shortening replanting time from weeks to several days and has proven to be highly efficient to all the tested pathogens so far.
