It used to be possible to cover the soil with plastic and fumigate
it by injecting methyl bromide. I'm not sure it's legal any more. Steam
sterilization might be your best bet. You may be able to rent the steam
room at a commercial mushroom plant. Commercial mushroom growers use a
sterilized culture medium to maximize mushroom yields. That's the only
place I can think of that would be all set up to sterilize tons of soil.
