Abstract

Benlate, a new systemic fungicide, has recently given excellent control of Botrytis or “fire” of Easter lily foliage in northwest California. Benlate 50W, applied to lilies in 1968, at the rate of 2 lbs of the formulation per acre, produced control equal to, or better than, the standard Bordeaux mixture. Further trials were initiated in 1969 to compare Benlate with Bordeaux in a large scale trial and to test different rates of material in small experimental plots. In another test, bulbs were dipped prior to planting to determine if there was enough systemic activity to control Botrytis through part or all of the season. Disease control in these dipped bulbs was compared with the standard PCNB-Ferbam dip.
