“Dieldrin was the major pesticide used against Banana weevils. However, its use was stopped when there was a widespread destruction of Banana plantations in Masaka [central Uganda]. The destruction of banana plantations was attributed to the use of either adulterated Dieldrin or the use of an entirely different chemical imported as dieldrin. Dieldrin was then substituted with furadan and, so it was claimed, the unused dieldrin stocks were subsequently dumped in the environment by farmers.” Wasswa et al. Chemosphere 82 (2011) 130-136.
