Effects of Benomyl Root Storage Treatments on Longleaf Pine Seedling Survival and Brown-Spot Disease Incidence

A benomyl (Benlate®) fungicide treatment applied to seedling roots at the nursery during the packing operation generally promoted field survival of seedlings stored in four packing materials for different storage periods. Seedlings stored in clay slurry and peat moss had the best field survival, seedlings stored in Terrasorb®(a water-absorbent material) had intermediate survival, while seedlings stored in hydromulch (a by-product material of paper production) had the lowest field survival. Best field survival occurred on seedlings stored for a period of 6 weeks or less.
