Abstract:Phorate was readily absorbed by the roots of loblolly pine seedlings and translocated throughout the plants. Control of adult pales weevils, Hylobius pales (Herbst), and adult pine aphids, Cinara watsoni Tissot, for 480 days following application of the toxicant to the soil indicates that this insecticide could be used to protect pine seedlings from excessive insect attacks in forest tree nurseries and outplantings.
