    Description

    Basamid® G is a granular soil fumigant containing dazomet, which has activity on weeds, insects, nematodes, and diseases. Basamid® G was compared to methyl bromide:chloropicrin and was equally effective as a weed control material in forest tree nurseries. Pine and hardwood plantings were treated with both materials in replicated and nonreplicated trials with various weed species, and both fumigants were highly effective. The recommended rate for Basamid® G is 350 to 530 lb/ac (390 to 595 kg/ha), and plant-back interval for tree seeds is 14 to 28 days. These may vary slightly due to local environmental conditions (rainfall, soil type, percentage organic matter, available soil moisture). Basamid® G gives the grower an alternative to methyl bromide, which has equal efficacy and grower-friendly application procedures. Basamid® G is halogen free with no ozone depleting components and will give the nursery grower effective, easily applied, and environmentally safe weed control for the future.
