DescriptionA preliminary evaluation of the effectiveness of injecting solubilized benomyl into oaks for prevention or cure of oak wilt disease is presented. Symptom development was greatly reduced or prevented in trees injected with fungicide before inoculation. Symptom development was markedly arrested in diseased trees by fungicide injected before more than 10 percent of the crown was wilted, but treatment of trees with more advanced disease symptoms was not effective.
