The two are freely compatible; use lttpg. of Benlate and only ltpg. of Truban; both are expensive. A82-1178 -- used in small doses with each watering = it does no good to the plants because it must be used in effective dosage amounts as prescribed on the container, that is, l-l/2 tpg.; don't use it too aften as it is potentially harmful ; it is also expensive.
