Effect of additive and carrier type on potato sprout suppression by dust formulations of tecnazene
Tecnazene formulations, with kaolin and alumina as carriers respectively and with some containing Triton X-405 (15% w/w) or, Tween 80 (15% w/w) as additive, were applied on potatoes stored at 10°C and 15–18°C respectively. Tween 80 enhanced sprouting inhibition by alumina formulation while Triton X-405 reduced that with kaolin as carrier. Formulation with kaolin as carrier produced greater sprouting inhibition than that with alumina as carrier.
