Smith, W.A. and Kirkpatrick, T.H. (1960) Technical notes. Benzene hexachloride in pineapple fields. Queensland Journal of Agricultural Science, 17 (1). pp. 67-68.



Scarabaeid larvae have been found associated with root damage to pineapple plants in various coastal localities in Queensland. Where a recommendation of BHC in the soil as a control method might reasonably have been made from work on other crops in the same localities, a consideration of possible tainting of the fruit has prevented this.
