An evaluation of thiophanate-methyl for the control of crown rot of banana hands
Australian Journal of Experimental Agriculture and Animal Husbandry
12(55) 185 - 187
The efficiency of thiophanate-methyl was compared with that of S.P.F. (a Japanese formulation), benomyl, and thiabendazole when used as post-harvest treatments for the control of crown rot of banana hands artificially inoculated with Gloeosporium musarum. The fungicide treatments all provided some control but differed in the concentration required for equivalent effectiveness. Benomyl was the most effective with thiophanate-methyl being less efficient than either benomyl or thiabendazole, but superior to S.P.F.
