The Use of Chemicals in Brush Burning
Blister rust control men have experimented with chemicals to accelerate the burning of brush piles made difficult to burn because of moisture and earth mixed in the piles as they are made by the bulldozer. The method involves the use of an active oxidizing agent, such as sawdust-nitrate-chlorate, or a cheap auxiliary fuel, such as lump charcoal soaked in Diesel oil. The method may have application in the burning of slash piles during wet weather, or when slash, heaped up by tractors, contains much earth.
