Sweet-Potato Diseases

Description: "Diseases of sweet potatoes are divisible into two classes, 1) field troubles, and 2) storage rots. Field troubles are divisible into root and stem diseases and leaf diseases. Root and stem diseases include stem-rot, black-rot, foot-rot, scurf, and root-rot; and leaf disease, leaf-blight, white-rust, and leaf-spot.... Control of the five storage rots described hinges on careful storage-house management. Sweet potatoes infected with field diseases should never be placed in storage, for heavy loss will follow. But this elimination of field diseases must be coupled with a well-regulated system of storage, the first requisite of which is a thoroughly disinfected house free from the numerous storage-rot germs." -- p. 2. There are many methods of control for field diseases which are also discussed.

Control of Cherry Leaf-Spot

Description: "The leaf-spot of the cherry seriously injures both sweet and sour varieties of that fruit in many sections of the eastern half of the United States. It is caused by a fungus which lives through the winter on the fallen leaves and infects the new leaves in the spring. The best control of this disease is obtained by spraying with a diluted lime-sulphur solution or with Bordeaux mixture 1) as soon as the petals fall, 2) about three weeks later, and 3) directly after the fruit is picked." -- p. 2

Control of Apple Powdery Mildew

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 Brown-Spot of Corn with Suggestions for Its Control

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

Milk Fever: Its Simple and Successful Treatment

Description: "Milk fever is a very common, and until recently a frequently fatal, disease affecting cows in all the large dairy districts of this and other countries. As it usually attacks the best milking members of the herd and at a time when the milk flow is the heaviest, the malady is one which has caused very severe losses to our dairy industry. It is therefore of the greatest economic importance that every milk producer acquaint himself with the present extremely successful methods of treating this disease, especially the injection of filtered atmospheric air into the udder. This form of treatment has been adopted within a comparatively recent time, and, in view of the uniform success that has followed, every dairyman should become familiar with its use and should provide himself with a suitable apparatus for it application, especially if he is located where the services of a competent veterinarian can not be secured. This method of dealing with the disease does not make the assistance of the veterinarian undesirable, in case it is obtainable, as the professional man may frequently be of the greatest assistance in treating complicated symptoms, should they arise." -- p. 3
