The effect of benomyl on the symptoms of apple proliferation

, : The effect of benomyl on the symptoms of apple proliferation. Acta Horticulturae (44): 23-27

In an experiment with 8 apple trees infected with apple proliferation in 1965, 4 were treated intensively with benomyl during the growing season of 1970, 1971, and 1972. On these trees only 6 out of 101 shoots developed witches' brooms in 1971 compared with 24 out of 109 shoots on the control plants. In 1972 the control plants produced 23 witches' brooms but the benomyl-treated plants produced none. These results are a further indication that apple proliferation is not caused by a virus.

Compared with high volume (2240 litre/ha) sprays, low (560 litre/ha) and ultra-low volume (45 litre/ha) sprays of benomyl were less toxic to earthworms. The decrease in populations was proportional to the quantity of fungicide deposited on the gro...
