Abstract/Contents:It is desireable to have a seed bed that is free of unwanted plant and disease organisms. You can do this by using Methyl Bromide. Advantages can take place within hours of fumigation. No unwanted seed heads. New grass can quickly be established before weeds. One disadvantage is some of the beneficial soil organisms are killed. "The speed of the operation and the subsequent re-seeding, combined with the certainty of success, make this process a very attractive proposition for anybody involved in turf production."
