A Review and Assessment of Microwave Energy for Soil Treatment to Control Pests
Transactions of the ASAE
Reports of experimental work on controlling pests such as insectsy nematodesy weed seedsy and fungi in soil with microwave energy are reviewed. The assessment of the practicability of microwave radiation for soil treatment to control pests involves estimation of energy costs for heating soil to lethal levels for devitalization of weed seeds and consideration of parameters affecting microwave energy attenuation in the soily conditions for selectively heating organisms in soil, and other factorsdoi:10.13031/2013.27508 fatcat:rnfqlpz4x5bw3eizbrbwqbnbf4
