Dazomet is a pre-planting soil fumigant, acting by decomposition to methyl isothiocyanate. Used as soil sterilant, applied prior to planting out crops, at 200–600 kg/ha. Controls soil fungi (Fusarium, Pythium, Rhizoctonia, Sclerotinia and Verticillium spp., and Colletotrichum coccodes), nematodes, germinating weed seeds, bacteria and soil insects. Also used as a slimicide in pulp and paper manufacture, and as a preservative in adhesives and glues. Phytotoxicity Highly phytotoxic to all green plants. Treated soils should not be planted until shown to be free of dazomet and its degradation products.
