the last blending operation.
site: Build a soil heap of max. 6 feet (2 meters) height. Irrigate
while building the heap slowly to moisten the soil not
to saturate it. Then cover the heap with plastic sheeting.
When fumigation is complete (temperature

worked and aerated. A germination
test should be carried out before using the soil media.
If the soil media is not intended for immediate use keep
plastic tarp on to avoid the infestation with weed seeds
or fungi by air contamination.

order to activate Basamid G, irrigate until the moisture
has reached the bottom of the media layer, using fine
nozzles e.g. frost protection nozzles. To contain the
fumigant activity cover with plastic tarp when
irrigation is complete. If no plastic tarp is to be used
roll the new green and provide a water seal by
irrigating daily with a total of 0,25 inch (approx. 6 to
