The Brown-Spot of Corn with Suggestions for Its Control

Date: 1920
Creator: Tisdale, W. H. (Wendell Holmes), 1892-
Description: "The purpose of this bulletin is to familiarize the farmer with the appearance, distribution, nature, and economic importance of the brown-spot of corn and to offer certain helpful suggestions for its control.... High temperature in combination with high humidity favors the development of the disease. For this reason the damage is greater in the South, where high temperatures prevail throughout the summer and the rainfall is rather heavy. The disease is caused by a minute fungus parasite.... Careful field sanitation, crop rotation, and seed selection aid in controlling the disease." -- p. 2

Control of Apple Powdery Mildew

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

The Control of the Root-Knot

The Control of the Root-Knot

Date: 1915
Creator: Bessey, Ernst Athearn, 1877-1957 & Byars, Luther P.
Description: "Attention should be directed to the continual spread of a common disease of plants generally known under the names of root-knot, root-gall, big-root, etc. It occurs as an out-of-doors pest in all except the most northern Sates, but it is most abundant in the South and Southwest and is everywhere prevalent in greenhouses. It is the cause of serious damage to many crops. The extent of this damage is difficult to estimate, since it is both direct and indirect and in many cases is overlooked entirely. The direct damage is that caused to the growing crops. The indirect damage results from the fact that the presence of the disease makes it impracticable to grow certain crops." -- title page
