A recent experiment involved dipping Easter lily bulbs in fungicides after the lilies were brought into the packing house from the field, but before they were packed for shipping. The experiment demonstrated the usefulness of dipping bulbs in Benlate before packing, and substantiated a number of earlier experiments with chemicals for forcing Easter lilies and for controlling disease.
