Easy To Kill Dandelions.
The dandelion, most vicious enemy
of well kept lawns, isdoomed. Experi
menters at the University of Wiscon
sin Agricultural station today claim
ed that methods perfected recently
will completely eradicate without
great effort the pestiferous weed.
Spraying the lawn infested with
dandelions with a mixture of iron sul
phate solution, a comparatively cheap
chemical, is the answer to the pro-I
tests against the weed.
Three applications during a year |
will obtain the best results, A. L.
Stone of the experiment station, de
clared. One in the spring just before
the dandelions blossom (early May)
one a month later, and one just be
fore the frost appears in the fail.
Sprays of the iron sulphate should
not be applied during very dry weath
er, or immediately after mowing the
lawn, the experts warn, as much dam
age may be done to the grass thereby.
Iron sulphate is commonly known
as green vitriol or copperas, and costs
about one and one-halt cents a hund
redweight .
Fertilizations and weeding out by
hand are also urged as supplementary I
measures in campaigns to eradicate
the dandelions.
