Methyl Bromide Fumigation of Containers Filled with Growing Media

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.
