Methyl Bromide Fumigation of Containers Filled with Growing Media
Garren, T.R.; Landis, T.D.; Campbell, S.J.
1989: Bismark, ND
Containers filled with peat-vermiculite growing media were fumigated
with methyl bromide/chloropicrin (98%;2%), which was more effective than heat
sterilization in controlling a soilborne disease. Because small volumes of growing
media are isolated in spacially separate containers, considerably lower fumigant
application rates were effective. Economic analysis proved methyl bromide
fumigation to be cost effective because seedlings grown in treated containers
were consistently larger.
