Agricultural Research Review 43: 55-58


Grain of wheat, rice, millet and barley was fumigated for periods of 5, 10 or 30 days with carbon bisulphide at 0.1, 0.2 and 0.4 ml/1. or a mixture of ethylene dichloride + carbon tetrachloride at 0.175, 0.35 and 0.7 ml/1. With carbon bisulphide, no adverse effects on seedling growth were noted in maize Syrian Early and only limited effects in rice Japanese Selected and Giza 14 with any treatment.
