Differential Response of Timothy Varieties to Captain1

  1. L. W. Nittler and
  2. T. J. Kenney2



Seedlings of seven cultivars of timothy, Phleum pratense L., were grown in soil to which captan, N−[(trichloromethyl) thio]−4−cyclohexene−l,2−dicarboximide, was applied as a drench immediately after the seeds were planted. Stunted plants occurred in all varieties, but the number differed significantly among varieties. ‘Climax’ had the fewest and ‘Heidemij’ had the most. Effect of captan was much greater when applied as a surface drench than when mixed with the soil before planting. Excessive watering resulted in more stunted plants than light watering.
