SPRAYING A SUCCESS
We want to say to the fruit
growers, as we said in our other
article, that it pays to spray your
orchards. Spraying systemati
cally each year, at the proper
time, will repay the grower a
hundred fold, as' this stops the
damaging insect blight, scab,
bitter rot, rust, leaf spot, San
Jose scale, and many other things
that affect the apple crop and
causes the fruit to be of an in
ferior quality, not fit for the mar
ket. And if not fit to go on the
market of the world, how can the
growers expect to make any
money put of this project in the
fruit growing business?
If as many as ten orchardists
would organize themselves into a
fruit growing company and adopt
a resolution that they were going
to use every effort possible to at
tend to their orchards in a sys
tematic way, as they should be
in order to make the best out of
it, in the way of pruning, culti
vafcion and spraying this next
season; success would be the end.
One trial will prove our asser
tions to be true.
There canaot be too much said
on clean, thorough cultivation,
pruning and spraying. They all
go to help make up the life and
health of the tree, and with a
healthy well developed tree, you
get the very best grade of fruit;
fruit that will go on the markets
of the world at the top price, and
that means big money to the
growers with very little labor
and expense, if done at the right
time. This work can be done
and not conflict with other farm
work Then why not give it at
; least one thorough trial? Don't
set out an orchard and half tend
to it and let it grow up in filth
and bushes and then say to the
world that there is nothing in the
fruit raising business. How
about your corn" and all other
crops, treated' likewise? Where
there is but little done, little is
expected and if we expect more,
we will never get it.
Now, the first thing in order is
to give your trees a thorough
pruning, which should be done
in tne next two months; then you
, , have them ready for the cultiva
tion, that should be done as early
as possible and kept up at dif
ferent times during the spring
and summer season. If the or
chards are not too filthy, the cul
tivation should be done with a
heavy "A" harrow, but if the
