The dusting of orchards by helicopter in Visingso, Sweden



The dusting of orchards by helicopter in Visingso, Sweden



Vaxtskyddsnotiser, 4, 49-53



Caterpillars caused severe damage in the Crown forests and orchards of Visingso, Sweden, in spring, 1947, the winter moth being the most harmful of the orchard pests. The affected area, about 150 hectares, was dusted with DDT from a helicopter at the rate of 10 kg. of Gesarol per hectare. Preliminary counts of chrysalises in the soil towards the end of June did not give any indication of the result of the treatment, since all those found had begun to pupate before the dusting was carried out.
