A procedure for assessing the mechanical application of fungicides
Authors: Dodds, M. E.
Description: The mechanical application of fungicides, using farm type seed treaters, has been given a great deal of study because of the increased acceptance of the chemicals now available to farmers. Many reports have been published on the methods by which dusts and liquids have been applied for the control of smut (1). The procedure followed, in order to assess the effectiveness of the treatments, was a biological method (2, 3) of detecting the presence of mercury com pounds on grain. This method, which is based on the inhibition of fungal growth on an agar medium in the proximity of treated seed, and the laboratory procedure are described in this report. The statistical design (4) is also oulined.
