Evaluation of Wood Preservatives Using Crushing Strength. E. Richard Toole, Assistant Technologist, Forest Products Utilization Laboratory, Mississippi State University, State College 39762; Phytopathology 61:182-183. Accepted for publication 9 September 1970. DOI: 10.1094/Phyto-61-182.

Laboratory evaluation of pentachlorophenol as a wood preservative by the weight loss method was compared with the reduction in crushing strength method. Both methods gave similar results, but incubation periods of at least 6 weeks were necessary to obtain results comparable with those previously published.
