Abstract
Preliminary tests indicate that Kolofog, which is made by the adsorption of fused sulfur into bentonite, is a mild spray as compared with liquid lime sulfur. Evidence is presented from the greenhouse which shows that Kolofog-sprayed leaves were larger than leaves sprayed with tap water, in the absence of insects and diseases. Apple leaves sprayed in the field with Kolofog were larger than leaves sprayed with liquid lime sulfur, and somewhat larger than those receiving Kolospray in which only a portion of the spray is made by the adsorption of fused sulfur into bentonite.
