Disinfection with activated steam

Published on November 10, 2009

The most frequently used disinfection and disinfestation technique in the gardening-floriculture sector – due to excellent phytoiatric and productive results and for the relevant herbicidal action obtained – is certainly fumigation with methyl bromide (Martino, 1997; Nederpel, 1979). As is common knowledge, following the Montreal Protocol, the use of this fumigant was prohibited since January 2005 in economically developed countries and since 2015 it could also not be used in developing countries, due to the fact that it is held responsible for the depletion of ozone layer.
