Title StatementField trials with tuba (croton tiglium) seed and polynactin against the snail internediate host and the larval stages of schistosoma japonicum
Physical Description350-355
Summary, Etc.Two small scale field trials were conducted to assess the molluscicidal activity of tuba seed (Croton tiglium) and polynactin molluscicide. Results showed that an 8 grams per 2 liters of water per square meter of tuba seed powder can compare favorably with bayluscide at 1 gram per 2 liters of water per square meter. Polynactin, however, showed poor results when applied at 1 milliliter in 2 liters of water per square meter. Preliminary assessment on the effect of tuba seed powder on the miracidia and cercariae of S. japonicum showed 100% immobilization for both at 8 ppm within one hour. With the promising results it is recommended that further studies and wider field trials be made while at the same time a practical method of preparing the compound from tuba seed for field application both as a molluscicide and/or cecaricide be worked out
