Fumigation tips online

GUIDANCE ON fumigating soils is on offer at www.certiscleanstart.com – a new website from distributor Certis.

Coinciding with the launch of the firm’s CleanStart programme, it shows how growers can use an integrated approach to pest, weed and disease control.

“The website is a useful technical guide for growers and agronomists in the high value horticultural crop sectors who are seeking an alternative fumigant to methyl bromide,” says the company’s Peter Hingley.

The site outlines the benefits of fumigation, describes the optimum conditions for best results, and provides detailed information on applying Basamid G (dazomet) fumigant.
