Disease control of Manglietia insignis

Damping off

1. Spray once every 10 days with 0.5% ferrous sulfate solution or 1000 times equivalent amount of Bordeaux liquid.

2. Has the disease of Manglietia insignis, can be used 800 times the special antibacterial liquid spray seedlings, every 7 days to spray a prevention and control.

Root rot

seedlings unearthed, in the case of not affecting the growth of seedlings, should be less watering, in order to not be conducive to the disease.

The infected strains, immediately with soil excavation, and in the infected strains around the 1 meter range of soil disinfection, agent can be used 50% of benzene to wet powder 1000 times the liquid irrigation.

Black cutworm

Weeding and insect control, to ensure that there are no weeds in the seedling, can eliminate part of the eggs and larvae.

Fresh grass trap, with juicy fresh grass or lettuce leaves cut short, with fresh grass, trichlorfon according to 99.5:0.5 mix into fresh grass bait, into the seedling seedling near, scattered a small pile at a certain distance, trap larvae.

Pesticide control, 50% phoxim cream 1000 times the liquid spray seedling.


1. Trapping and killing with black light before laying eggs in large numbers of female adults.

2. In the adult occurrence period, spray 90% trichlorfon 1000 times liquid.
