Agricultural soil samples containing survival structures of the fungal crop pathogens Verticillium dahliae, Sclerotinia sclerotiorum, Sclerotium cepivorum, Pythium ultimum, potato cyst nematodes Globodera rostochiensis and G. pallida and weeds Chenopodium album and Agropyron repens [Elymus repens] were treated in the laboratory with aerated steam at temperatures ranging from 40 to 80°C in a specially constructed apparatus. Steaming at 50 or 60°C for 3min, followed by an 8-min resting period in… Expand

Control of Soil-Borne Diseases in Tomato by Use of Steam and an Exothermic Reaction
In 2005-2006 we tested pre-planting treatments applied using a self-propelled soil steaming machine designed for the release of steam after incorporation in the soil of a substance that causes anExpand
Effects of band-steaming on microbial activity and abundance in organic farming soil
Band-steaming of arable soil at 80–90 °C kill off weed seeds prior to crop establishment which allows an extensive intra-row weed control. Here we evaluated the side-effects of in situ band-steamingExpand
Eradication of plant pathogens and nematodes during composting: a review
The effects of temperature–time combinations and other sanitizing factors during composting on 64 plant pathogenic fungi, plasmodiophoromycetes, oomycetes, bacteria, viruses and nematodes wereExpand
Agricultural waste amendments improve inundation treatment of soil contaminated with potato cyst nematodes, Globodera rostochiensis and G. pallida
TLDR
It took 8 the authors weeks of inundation of non-amended soil to reduce nematode survival by 72 %, while in amended soils survival was reduced up to 99.9 % after 4 weeks, and higher concentrations of SCFA and carbon dioxide and lower levels of oxygen were detected in amended treatments. Expand
Effect of short‐duration high temperatures on weed seed germination
TLDR
Results of two experiments to test the effect of brief exposure to varying temperatures on seed germination of weed species' germination sensitivity to high temperature exposure demonstrate a relatively simple and generalizable methodology for use in other studies. Expand
Efficacy of different steam distribution systems against five soilborne pathogens under controlled laboratory conditions
TLDR
Injecting steam was the best technique to suppress F. oxysporum f. Expand
Indicator organisms for assessing sanitization during composting of plant wastes.
TLDR
Relationships between compost temperature during exposures of 2-10 days and subsequent viability of the above chlamydospores or seeds enabled the sanitizing effect of composting processes to be predicted within 2-6 days. Expand
Dynamics of mineral nitrogen, water-soluble carbon and potential nitrification in band-steamed arable soil
Steaming of narrow soil bands prior to sowing is a new technique that reduces the need for intra-row weeding in herbicide-free row crops. However, the steam treatment may eliminate both weed seedsExpand
Development of a systems approach for the control of diseases in organic greenhouse crops
The study aimed to develop integrated crop management (ICM) systems in organic greenhouse production for improved control of tomato corky root rot (Pyrenochaeta lycopersici), tomato verticillium wiltExpand
Soil steaming effects on weed seedling emergence under the influence of soil type, soil moisture, soil structure and heat duration
TLDR
Investigating the influence of soil factors and heat duration on weed seed mortality of soil steaming targeting 60–80◦C found steam application to the finely structured soil improved weed control efficacy relative to that obtained with the coarse soil of larger aggregate size. Expand

Influence of steam/air mixtures, when used for heating soil, on biological and chemical properties that affect seedling growth
TLDR
Heating naturally infested soils at 60d C eliminated attack by Rhizoctonia solani Kuhn and pathogens causing brown root rot, so increasing survival and growth of lettuce and tomato seedlings respectively. Expand
STUDIES OF THE BIOLOGY OF SCLEROTIUM CEPIVORUM BERK: HOST RANGE; PERSISTENCE AND VIABILITY OF SCLEROTIA
TLDR
It is concluded that S. cepivorum sclerotia persist in soil for many years, in the absence of the host plant, and that outbreaks of white rot on rested land could be due to such survival. Expand
Methods of screening Acer platanoides L. seedlings for resistance to wilt (Verticillium dahliae Kleb.).
TLDR
Several methods of challenging young seedlings of Norway maple with Verticillium dahliae were investigated to develop a method for screening seed provenances for wilt resistance, and root-dipping was the most severe test. Expand
Non-chemical approach to soilborne pest management – organic amendments
TLDR
The effect of solarizing organically amended soil as a control method was validated under commercial field conditions and a long-term effect of the combined treatments was also evident. Expand
Studies of the biology of Sclerotium cepivorum Berk. IV. Germination of sclerotia.
TLDR
It is concluded that under field conditions sclerotia are induced to germinate by a thermostable chemical substance from Allium roots. Expand
Survival of sclerotia of Sclerotium cepivorum berk. In muck soil as influenced by drying and the location of sclerotia in soil
TLDR
The proportion of viable sclerotia of Sclerotium cepivorum placed in field plots in Burnaby, British Columbia, decreased with time, but the proportion that remained viable in the not-dried buried, not-Dried surface, dried buried and dried surface treatments respectively did not decline with time. Expand
Survival of sclerotia of sclerotinia sclerotiorum in soil
TLDR
Recovery and viability were less, and incidence of Fusarium, Mucor and Trichoderma spp. Expand
The detection and estimation of Verticillium dahliae in naturally infested soil
TLDR
Wet-sieving was generally more effective in detecting V. dahliae and gave higher counts than a sucrose-flotation method and excessive sample-to-sample variability in the results of some experiments was attributed to non-random distribution of fungus propagules in soil, or to the difficulty of standardizing the sieving part of the analysis.

Production and manipulation of individual microsclerotia of Verticillum dahliae for use in studies of survival
TLDR
A method for the laboratory xulture of Verticillium dahliae and the harvest, isolation, and manipulation of single microsclerotia (MS) is outlined, finding that a single lot of MS could be used in long-term experiments on the effect of microbial interaction on MS survival. Expand

TLDR
The selective effect of heat treatment on the total numbers of bacteria, actinomycetes and fungi of a greenhouse soil (loam) was estimated and the fungi proved to be the most sensitive to heat treatment. Expand
