Are There Chemical Methods for Sterilizing Potting Soil?

hsparekh added on June 27, 2014 | Answered

General suggestions are that the soil be steamed (in pressure cookers or by other means) or heated in oven or microwave to a temperature of about 175 *F. I wish to know if there are chemical methods available for soaking soil in their solutions for killing harmful bacteria/germs etc. - may be for bit longer time than one may think of. hsparekh
