The use of large quantities of solid waste materials by chemical combination with pesticides is discussed. The associated expenditures and the disadvantages of the current methods of application for these pesticides are contrasted with the general advantages of the corresponding controlled release forms based on solid waste macromolecules. The preparation of such combinations is described. Theories which permit the prediction of the period of effectiveness of solid waste-pesticide combinations have been developed and validated. Solid waste-herbicide combinations based on 2,4-dichlorophenoxybutyric acid have been found to be capable of safely suppressing weeds and brush in the presence of conifers and field tests have shown that conifer growth is thereby substantially accelerated. The practicability of longacting controlled release forms of insecticides was also demonstrated. (Author)
