Stomp out 98 disaster
Title: Stomp out 98 disaster
A janitor at one of our school gardens sprayed Stomp Out 98 and laid waste to a large portion of the garden, trees, shrubs, etc. Stomp Out goes by other names of Wipe Out and Barren. It's a sterilizer with an active ingredient that has a half life of 40 days. My question is do we remove all the soil mix from the raised beds and start over or can we plant a cover crop this fall of rye and attempt to plant next spring? This is nasty stuff not to mention around kids.
