In many portions of Pennsylvania
tho fruit crop has been destroyed by
the freezing weather, and orchard
lsts are now writing to State Zoolog
ist, H. A. Surface, Harrlsburg, ask
ing If it would be worth while for
them to spray their trees this spring
whero tho fruit is frozen and there
is to be no crop this summr. Prof.
Surface does not think It necessary
nor especially advantageous to go to
the expense of spraying tho stone
fruits under such conditions, but
does recommend spraying the pome
fruits, or apple, pear and quince,
with a fungicide to keep the leaves
healthy, and thus to develop strong
healthy fruit buds for next year's
crop, as shown In tho following reply
which was sent to ono of the large
fruit growers In Cambria county,
who is also an officer in the Cambria
County Fruit Growers' Association:
" In reply to your Inquiry as to
whether you should spray your apple
trees, even If tho fruit Is killed, I
can say that It will pay you well to
spray tho apple, pear and quince with
a fungicide, such as a gallon and a
quart of strong lime-sulfur in 49
gallons of water, or the average Bor
deaux mixture, applying this spray
two or three times during the sum
mer, so as keep the trees healthy
and vigorous. If tho trees are kept
growing well, they will produce
good strong fruit buds which will be
the assurance of next year's crop.
The first spraying with tho fungicide
can be done at any time. This is
very inexpensive aafthe only element
that means much In the way of cost
in summer spraying, besides the la
bor, Is the arsenate of lead. If you
have no chewing Insects present, and
the fruit crop is killed, it is. not nec
essary to add arsenate of lead to the
fungicide for the summer spraying.
If I were doing it I should spray my
pome fruit trees with the boiled
lime-sulfur solution, either home
made or commercial, as directed
above, omitting the arsenate of lead
unless there is evidence of canker
worms, caterpillars, or leaf-eating
insects of other kinds present or
about to appear."
