Description: Carbofuran, a systemic insecticide, was applied to the soil under planted loblolly pines near Aiken. SC. at ages 2 through 5. The insecticide sharply reduced tip-moth damage and increased the height of 5-year-old saplings, compared with untreated controls. Treatment also reduced incidence of fusiforn rust, but carbofuran did not have a fungicidal effect.
