A Further Report on the Value of Dusting versus Spraying to control Fruit Tree Insects and Fungus Diseases



A Further Report on the Value of Dusting versus Spraying to control Fruit Tree Insects and Fungus Diseases



48th Ann. Rept. Entom. Soc. Ontario for Toronto, 79-85



A series of experiments is here recorded similar to those carried out in the previous year with dust sprays as compared with liquids. As regards cost, dust is considered on the whole cheaper if carefully used. Various tests on apple trees are described, the foliage on all dusted trees being nearly perfect, though that on sprayed trees was almost equally good. As regards the control of codling moth, there was little or no difference in the efficacy of the two methods.
