Hi Bryonet,

I am looking for a pre-emergent herbicide that will kill spores (and
vascular plant
seeds) before or immediately after germination. I am conducting a study
to determine
the rate of dispersal into freshly disturbed plots of soil, so I am
trying to find a
way to sterilize the soil of plant propagules. The herbicide needs to be
water soluble,
biodegradable, non-adsorbant to soil particles, and non-persistant
(degrade in under a
month). Any help would be great,
