Abstract:
Methyl bromide/chloropicrin (MB/C), a soil sterilant, was deep injected into cotton beds 6 days before planting in 1988. Application rates were zero, 300, 400, and 500 pounds of MB/C per acre, injected 18-inches deep into the sandy loam soil. Short staple lint yields in all of the MB/C treatments were significantly higher than the untreated check. MB/C at all application rates was 100% effective in preventing the plants from dying from the disease, while 86% of the plants in the untreated check plots died.
