Stronga’s FlowSteama and SteamaBoila equipment can be used to heat treat soil up to the temperatures required to kill or inactivate weed seeds, nematodes, fungi, bacteria, and viruses by destroying cell structure and proteins. Steam heat treatment can also be used to disinfect compost, potting soil, bark mulch and more.
Soil sterilization eradicates harmful organisms, weed seeds, and pathogens from mineral soil and potting mixes. Soil sterilization is particularly advantageous in conditions where soils are used repeatedly to germinate seeds, propagate cuttings, or grow juvenile plants. Steam sterilization provides a “clean” growing environment, preventing “damping off” and encouraging strong, healthy growth.
