Harvesting Hay with the Sweep-Rake: A Means by Which Eastern Hay-Growers May Save Labor

Description: "The sweep-rake offers the possibility of reducing by the about 50 per cent the labor required in harvesting hay compared with the methods now commonly used in the East. This implement is used most extensively in the hay-growing sections of the West, but is entirely practicable under conditions prevailing in many eastern sections. It is comparatively inexpensive and costs little for repairs. It eliminates a great deal of irksome hand labor. With the sweep-rake a boy who can drive a team can do the same work as a man. Many eastern hay-growers are unacquainted with the value of this tool, and the purpose of this bulletin is to bring it to their attention and urge its consideration as a means of relieving the shortage of farm labor." -- p. 2

Spraying for the Control of Insects and Mites Attacking Citrus Trees in Florida

Description: "Under Florida conditions spraying is the most effective method for the control of citrus pests. In the past there have been many failures, and much money has been expended without adequate returns to the grower in better fruit and increased yields. These failures have been due to various causes, such as improper equipment, ineffective insecticides, and a lack of a proper spraying schedule. This bulletin gives information regarding the best equipment for Florida conditions, and directions for preparing effective homemade insecticides. There is also given a spraying schedule that has proved satisfactory after several years of practical experience and such other information as will enable the grower to control citrus pests in a satisfactory manner. Spraying improves the grades of the fruit and increases the yield of the trees out of all proportion to its cost, if the work is done properly." -- p. 2

Frost and the Prevention of Damage by It

Description: Revised edition. "All frost protection methods, from the simplest to the most complicated, can be carried on more successfully if the processes by which the earth's surface cools at night and the factors which influence the rate of cooling are well understood. In the first part of this bulletin an attempt has been made to describe in a simple, elementary manner the changes that take place at and near the earth's surface on a frosty night, so that persons protecting plants or trees may be able to understand how their protective devices operate to prevent damage and in what manner they are most efficient. In treating a matter of this kind it is practically impossible to eliminate all technical terms, but so far as possible these have been carefully explained in simple language. The larger portion is given over to a discussion of the various methods and devices now being used for protection against frost, together with a chapter on temperatures injurious to plants, blossoms, and fruit." -- p. 2
