Nursery Weed Control with Herbicides or Fumigation--An Economic Evaluation

The full text article is temporarily unavailable.

We apologise for the inconvenience. Please try again later.

Ten experiments conducted at seven southern nurseries over a 4-year period demonstrate that control of annual weeds with methyl bromide fumigation is economically unjustified. Total weed control costs with methyl bromide were 4 to 16 times more expensive than herbicides. Without exception, herbicides reduced weeding times, while fumigation reduced weeding times only in seven experiments. Methyl bromide fumigation can be justified when controlling pathogens or high populations of herbicide-resistant weed species.
