Ponderosa pine seedling response to planting-site soil fumigation and fungicide application

Documents and Media Posted on: December 07, 2018
Ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa Laws.) was used as a biological model to determine the effects of planting site soil fumigation and fungicide applications on stock planted in moderately-fertile soils of the Intermountain West of the United States. Five soil fumigation (Vapam) treatments, singularly and in combination with fungicide (triadimefon) applications, were compared to a control.Document Type: Other Documents

The history and future of methyl bromide alternatives used in the production of forest seedlings in the southern United States

Publications Posted on: March 24, 2014
This paper gives a brief history of the Southern Forest Nursery Management Cooperative’s (SFNMC) efforts in testing methyl bromide (MBr) alternatives for soil fumigation. In the southeastern United States, fumigation with MBr has been the most commonly used method for producing high quality, pest-free forest-tree seedlings in an environment that is conducive for soil-borne pathogens, nematodes, and weeds.
