Stacks of raisin boxes occupying 15 or ft3 and sealed in sisalkraft paper covers were supplied with phosphine tablets at rates of 5 to 45/1 ft3. Data on phosphine concentrations in the stacks at intervals up to 6 days are tabulated. The phosphine penetrated readily among the fruit although the boxes were stacked closely, and in each stack all caged insects were : Howard D. Nelson. P.C.

A study was conducted to evaluate the effect of fumigation with phosphine at different doses, exposure times, and seed moisture contents, and after the seed has been treated with fungicides on seed germination and seedling vigor in rice (Oryza sativa L.). The fumigated seed was evaluated for germination and vigor, initially and after 90 d of. Rice fumigation is a method of pest control that uses a phosphine (PH3) or with low oxygen, treatment to exterminate pests in an enclosed space. The whole fumigation procedures take about ten days. After the fumigation is complete, the fumigator will have to aerate the fumigant from the structure and monitors the air for re-entering the area.
