A Bioassay To Investigate Movement of Wood Preservatives From Poles Into Soil A Research Note

T. C. Scheffer, R. Inwards

Abstract


A promising method was found for investigating migration of preservative from preservative-treated poles into surrounding soil. The presence and relative amounts of preservative are indicated by suppression of decay (weight loss) in birch coffee-stirring sticks buried at various distances from the pole.
