Increasing Latex in Pine Seed Coating Impairs Repellency and Germination
Abstract:The repellent currently recommended for protecting pine seeds sown directly contains 2 gallons Arasan 42-S, I pound Endrin 50-W, and 10 ounces latex per 100 pounds of seed. Weathering prior to germination causes some repellent loss but seed protection from rodents is not significantly decreased. Greater amounts of latex allow more depredations by several rodent species and decrease germination.
