A New Tool to Control Soil-Based Pests and Pathogens

Nonchemical and Nonselective Soil Treatment Using Pulsed Electricity

Boden BOLT is a banded soil treatment that uses pulsed electricity to control soil-borne pests in row and specialty crops.

BOLT uses an electrical pulse applied through soil to induce nonselective electroporation– an irreversible destruction of cell membranes– within an approximately 3" wide by 7" deep treatment zone.

BOLT can safely be applied before, during or after planting with no residual activity and no restricted entry interval. Farmers can introduce beneficials, fertilizer, seeds or transplants immediately behind the electrical treatment.


Save Time and Fuel on field passes by treating with BOLT at the same time as planting, transplanting, fertilizing and more.


Avoid Fumigants and dependence on chemicals by adding a new mode of action for control of soil-borne pests.


Field Trials Available in Spring and Summer 2024 for California farmers.

BOLT out-yielded the leading chemical inhibitors by an average of 6 bushels per acre and the untreated control by 15 bushels per acre.
