This study throws new light upon the problem of the use of sulfuric acid as a disinfectant in forest nurseries. It emphasizes the importance of the concentration of the solution, its rate of application, and the modifying influence of several soil properties which may be responsible for failure of the treatment or destruction of nursery stock. Experience in several Wisconsin nurseries has shown that sulfuric acid is the cheapest and one of the most reliable disinfectants for the control of damping-off disease, provided it is used on suitable soils, in adequate amounts, and in proper dilution.
