AbstractEvaluates alternatives to the fumigant methyl bromide in the production of Coreopsis verticillata 'Moonbeam'. Iodomethane (IM), chloropicrin (CP), 1,3-dichloropropene (1,3-D), metham sodium (MS), and MB in various combinations were evaluated. Most treatments gave complete control of annual weeds and none of the treatments resulted in visual injury to the crop species.
