This results, of course, in more weeds in the rows. Be Careful Be careful in applying these Chemical sprays, as they can injure growing corn. You can minimize the chances of injury by using nozzle extensions to confine the spray to the soil and base of the plants by using proper nozzlp tips and maintaining correct pressures to apply the spray at th proper rate. To reduce drift, main tain a pressure of 30 to 40 pound per square inch. 2.4-D will control susceptlbl broad-leaved weeds, but it will no affect 'annual grasses. Until th corn is three or four feet tall, ap ply no more than '4 pound of th ester form of 2,-5-D or '/a pound o the amine form per acre. For tal er corn, you can increase the rat if you use the proper nozzle ex tensions and apply the spray at th base of the corn and to the soil. • If you expect a dense growt of weeds after the last cultivation follow with an application of pound of 2,4-D acid. To preven injury to the corn, use a boom extension and apply directly 1 the soil. Do not spray corn wi 2,4-D from the time it starts t tassel until after the kerne reach the soft dough stage. Stalk Brittieness Spraying with 2,4-D can caus stalk brittieness. It is most like! to occur when spraying is don after daytime temperatures 85 degrees F. and higher. It i usually most serious when th corn is growing rapidly. If storm occurs or the soil Is cu tivated before the brittieness dis appears, stalk breakage may b serious. This danger can be min imized by applying no more tha Soybean Damage Many more fields of soybeans are being severely damaged by liase of the plant to tip of the de- grape colaspis. a small white grub that feeds on the roots.
