Effectiveness of Busan 30 treated birch blocks in a soil medium

IRG/WP 3409

H C Konabe

TCMTB based formulation has been anticipated for use in dip-diffusion treatment in Papua New Guinea to replace BFCA Wood preservative. One such formulation is the Penacide (TCMTB + MBT Boron) which is currently being tested against fungi and insects. Accelerated laboratory test in soil exposure was employed to test a related formulation (Busan 30) to determine its effectiveness against soil inhabiting organisms. In general the formulation was effective at a toxic threshold limit of 3.8 kg/m³.
