Field trials of anti-sapstain products. Part 1

IRG/WP 3675

L Nunes, F Peixoto, M M Pedroso, J A Santos

The results obtained in two field tests of anti-sapatain products, carried out in four locations in Portugal, are presented. Boards from freshly cut logs were hand-dipped, close staked and left to dry for periods from four to six months. The results obtained seem to indicate that some of the products tested performed at least as well and sometimes better, than a 3% NaPCP solution which was used as control product.
