ENTO-456NP This publication compares the use of pumpkin seeds pretreated with insecticides and fungicides with the use of foliar sprays on pumpkin plants. It also compares yield data from plots with seeds treated with fungicides only to seeds treated with both insecticides and fungicides. Seed treatments likely cause less harm to bees and other pollinators than foliar sprays do.
