It was found that spraying apple trees with 2% lime-sulphur and 1% lead arsenate preparation or with a new preparation containing no arsenic gave an increase of the chlorophyll content in apple leaves (10% to 30% more per unit leaf area as compared with the leaves of untreated trees). The result was similar to that obtained from ample application of nitrogenous fertilizers. Applications of nitrogen together with spraying resulted in a 30% to 100% increase of the chlorophyll content.
