Abstract
The sum of these results has clearly indicated that the dithiocarbamate type of preparation IS most likely to be successful as a preventative for damping-off under field conditions. Perenox may well prove unreliable on the face of the present evidence, while organo mercurial preparations, as they are generally formulated on a basis of less than 10 per cent active ingredient, do not appear to be likely to give a good standard of control. It is quite possible that organo-mercurials might be most effective if applied at higher rates, but this would prove to be uneconomical.
