Abstract

Seed treatment of lima beans with fungicides—effective protection against seed decay caused by soil-borne fungi— does not protect against the attacks of wireworms, seed maggots, and spring-tails. Wireworms bore into the parts of the germinating seeds and into the roots, causing stunting, disfigurement, or death of the plants.
