It stinks! But we could learn to love it.
Researchers at Montana State University say a stinky fungus from Honduras may provide farmers with an environmentally friendly soil fumigant.
The fungus, called Muscodor albus, emits a number of gases that kill or slow pathogens harmful to certain crops.
The musty-smelling fungus could be an alternative to methyl bromide, a fumigant known to damage the ozone.
Primarily used by thousands of California and Florida farmers, on crops including strawberries …
a federal law requires methyl bromide be phased out by the year 2005, except for limited purposes.
