Abstract:Two liquid plastic adjuvants were tested at 2 concentrations as residual extenders with 4 insecticides on the stems of young cacao, Theobroma cacao L., seedlings. Both 10% and 100% concentrations of Plyac® generally increased the residual effectiveness of the toxicants through 56 days. An initial masking effect was apparent with Estab® but 100% concentrations combined with 1% toxicants permitted measurable insect kill at 224 days with washed stem samples.
