Abstract:Preliminary tests to determine the resistance of planting material and its parasites to various dosages of gases applied in a vacuum fumigator. Planting material proved to be quite intolerant to carbon bisulphide, considerably more resistant to chlorpicrin and withstood, without injury, heavy charges of hydrocyanic acid gas. The last also gave satisfactory control of the parasites within the tolerance limits of the host.
