Stock plants of tea [Camellia sinensis (L.) Kuntze cv. Chin-shin Oolong] were sprayed three times at weekly intervals with benomyl before taking cuttings. The survival rate of cuttings was increased from 3.3% in the nontreated controls to 76% in 1986 and from 6.4% to 83% in 1987. The treatment also greatly improved the subsequent growth of cuttings. Soaking cuttings in benomyl solution before sticking slightly improved survival and subsequent growth of cuttings. Chemical name used: methyl[1-[(butylamino)carbonyl]-1H-benzimidazol-2-yl]carbamate (benomyl).
