Barley: Growing the Crop

This bulletin gives directions for the best methods of growing and harvesting the crop. With the use of these methods there should be a marked increase in the yield and quality of the barley grown in the United States." -- p. 2

The Bean Ladybird and Its Control

Description: "The bean crop of the Southwest suffers severe injury from the bean ladybird, which sometimes ruins entire crops. It is restricted to beans for food and attacks all kind. Both beetles and their larvae devour all parts of a plant -- leaves, flowers, and pods -- but the chief injury is to the foliage. This pest can be controlled in small areas by hand-picking the overwintered beetles and by brushing the larvae or young from the plants during hot, dry weather. On a larger scale it may be controlled by spraying with arsenite of zinc, arsenate of lead, or arsenate of lime. Clean cultivation should be practiced and early and late planting." -- p. 2
