1 best treatment against
apple scab and apple leaf spot. These
destructive diseases seriously affect
both trees and fruit, but can be effect-
ively controlled if directions are fol
lowed. The first spraying should be
made with a carefully prepared lime
and sulphur solution (not the home
kind) at a strength of two gallons to
fifty gallons of water, just before the
cluster buds open. The second spray
ing should take place two or three
weeks later, with the same solution
at a strength of one and one-haif gal- ^
ions to fifty of water, and the third
spraying with this same weaker solu
tion three weeks later still. The best
results can be obtained only by mak
ing sure to apply tlie first spraying
just before the cluster buds open.
Two birds can be killed with one
stone by adding two pounds of arse
nate of lead for the last
two sprayings for scab and
leaf spot, as the spray will
then also control the coddling moth.
Fertilization and clean cultivation
will always render trees more resist
ant to fungus diseases.
Bitter rot is another serious dis
ease of the apple, and is more difficult
to control than leaf spot and scab. It
is also of a fungus nature, and causes
the apples to rot before maturity,
usually beginning in July. It can be
remedied by the Same lime and sul
phur solution applied as before de
scribed, but for the most effective
control of it Bordeaux mixture shorn
