In Western Australia, seed wheat has, for many years, been dusted before planting with copper carbonate or other fungicides—a treatment usually referred to locally as dry-pickling. This term was first coined when the dry dusting technique superseded the older method of wet-pickling the seed in bluestone or formalin solutions.
