The potential of copper sulphate to control Phytophthora cinnamomi in bauxite mining operations
Howard, K., Colquhoun, I.J. and Hardy, G. (1997) The potential of copper sulphate to control Phytophthora cinnamomi in bauxite mining operations. In: 11th Biennial Conference of the Australasian Plant Pathology Society, 29 September - 2 October, Perth, Western Australia.
Phytophthora cinnamomi Rands is present in many areas prior to mining by Alcoa of Australia, Ltd. To reduce the risk of spreading this pathogen to non-infected areas the company employs a range of control measures at all stages of mining. There is a need to develop a treatment to eradicate P. cinnamomi from relatively small volumes <60m3) of soil. This study examined the efficacy ofCuS04 as a fungicide for rapid death <2h) of P. cinnamomi in topsoil and gravel soil taken from a mining area.
