Alternatives to methyl bromide for Queensland strawberry production

Hutton, D. (2010) Alternatives to methyl bromide for Queensland strawberry production. Project Report. Horticulture Australia.



The reported research aimed to find effective replacements for methyl bromide in strawberry runner and fruit production. We compared the following new fumigants:
methyl iodide plus chloropicrin 30:70 in Year 1, and 50:50 in year 2, 1, 3 dichloropropene; chloropicrin 65:35 EC and 1,3 dichloropropene; chloropicrin 40:60 with the old standard methyl bromide: chloropicrin 50:50, chloropicrin alone, and dichloropropene; chloropicrin 65:35. Evaluations were conducted on Stanthorpe runner farms in 2007/08 and 2008/09, and a Nambour fruit production site in 2008.
Project data would support a national registration application.
