The use of gas in nursery management

The various types of environments encountered within the nursery sector vary greatly from full sun outdoor to climatically controlled indoor environments. Subsequently the need to control all types of factors within the range of applications will also vary. Gasses in various forms have been used for many years to control, treat and fumigate all types of problems occurring. This paper is aimed at updating knowledge within the industry and perhaps opening aspects of control that have been over looked for many years and due to new pest and insect incursions.
