The section of increment core remaining after the treated wood and fumigant
assay segments were removed was used to detect the presence of decay fungi.
The soil was then immediately covered with plastic tarps designed to prevent the fumigant
toxicity of the oils and individual compounds, PI, were calculated according to the formula PI = ([N.
Hartwell Allen, an ARS soil scientist showed that this virtually impermeable film (VIF) can retain soil fumigants

In terms of value, fumigant
products dominate the nematicides market.
The most effective fumigant
, methyl bromide, was phased out in January 2005, although some uses are currently allowed under critical use exemptions (CUEs) and as treatments for meeting quarantine and preshipment (QPS) criteria.
