Control of Apple Powdery Mildew

Date: 1920
Creator: Fisher, D. F.
Description: "Apple powdery mildew is a serious disease of nursery stock throughout the United States and occasionally is serious on orchard trees in the East. In the apple-growing districts west of the Rocky Mountains, however, and especially in the pacific Coast States, it has become an important orchard disease that annually causes heavy losses.... Pruning out infected shoots during the dormant season is an important step in control, but this treatment must be supplemented by spraying during the growing season. The most effective sprays are diluted lime-sulphur solutions and those containing sulphur in a finely divided form. This bulletin tells how to prepare the spray materials needed and how to apply them. A spraying schedule, showing concisely when and with what to spray, is included." -- p. 2
