Toxicity Responses of Herbaceous and Woody Ornamental Plants to Chlorine and Hydrogen Dioxides

W. E. Copes, G. A. Chastagner, and R. L. Hummel

March 2003

Research

Regular and excessive rates of the disinfectants chlorine dioxide and hydrogen dioxide were sprayed on 8 bedding plant and 9 shrub species to determine if plant damage would result. Rates of ClO2 and H2O2 were found that did not damage most plants tested and that should control some of the more chemical-tolerant pathogens.
