Jour Dept Agric Western Australia 25(3): 283-290

The control of root-knot or eelworm-gall disease by soil fumigation with D-D

Crops grown in the tests included peas, beans, tomatoes, silver beet, red beet, carrots, and parsnips. Results showed almost complete control. Recommendations, methods of application, and precautions are given.

Detailed methods are given for controlling root-knot in flue-cured tobacco, applying either D-D mixture or ethylene dibromide along the rows (4ft. apart) where the tobacco is to be planted. The D-D is used at 10 gal. per acre, and 40% ethylene dib...
