The fungicide benomyl and the antibiotic rifampicin were screened at nine concentration combinations for effectiveness in controlling persistent bacterial and fungal contaminants of field-grown Camellia sinensis and C. japonica shoot tip explants. Following traditional disinfestation, a 24-hr culture in liquid medium containing benomyl at 1, 2, or 4 g·liter−1 and rifampicin at 10, 25, or 50 mg·liter1 reduced contamination with no phytotoxic effects. Chemical names used: methyl[1-[(butylamino)carbonyl]-1H-benzimidazol-2-yl]carbamate (benomyl); 3-[4-methylpiperazinyl-iminomethyl]rifamycin SV (rifampicin).

Maleic hydrazide (MH) is known to affect physiological and morphological responses in various plant species including tea. The role of caffeine, tannin, DNA, and RNA in various species of plants has been the subject of scientific investigation for many years. To date, this subject still has need of continued research in order to draw conclusions as to the relationship of caffeine and tannin to the taste, quality, and flavor of beverages (tea).
