The concept of combining control methods emerged from the need to make use of the advantages of a given method while overcoming its limitations. The major limitations of solarization, include its relatively long duration—on the order of weeks—and its ineffectiveness at controlling heat-tolerant organisms that survive the solarization process. Several benefits are expected from combining solarization with fungicides, bactericides, insecticides, or nematicides: the activity of the heated pesticide and the propagule sensitivity to that pesticide are increased; the spectrum of controlled pests can be expanded; and the improved pest control may consequently lead to reduced pesticide dosages and treatment cost. When solarization is combined with fumigants, the fumigant is captured under a plastic tarp, resulting in longer exposure; the use of solarization combined with effective chemicals can increase the former’s effectiveness in pest control under certain limiting conditions. Furthermore, such a combination can shorten the required duration of solarization, making the disinfestation process more feasible for use by farmers.
