Unlled I'n-ss Science Writer NEW YtaK, May 15. <UP>—A soil co perl siiU\ tod;iy Unit certain types of plants ran he "vaccinated" agiilnsl .sonic insects, thereby open- Ins 1cm of pest control. Tins newly developed "vaccine 1 !•> socliinn sclonatc. a. while, crystalline, m'Jif;uiiic coinpiiind which readily dissolves In wal'jr. Tt is administered by apllcallou to the soil and then is absorbed by the roots of ulunlK. Reports of the new experiments wore made by Ci!en Puller, of Uat- lelle Mciuiirial Insti'iile, C..lnnil;us O., in the ehnmiHic digest, lie em- iiot \n u>cd on lood plants as It is poisonous lo man and domestic an- mals. What makes the development Important, I'ullci 1 .said, Is that It "SUB- Kests n new and promising ap- pinaeli not only to pcs( control problems, but |X)sslbly to the eon- irol of plant discuses as well." "It seems probable," he said, "thai other materials, of cither natural or synthetic origin, may eventually prove capable of being introduced into Hviim plants through the roots for lhe iini' of rendering them cither repcllant or toxic to insects, or resistant to disease. "Instead of remaining "Inm- <-ent i>ysl;viHlpvs,' plants uuty cvcn- diiaiils in man's continuing warlUoir, can 'm safe again for edible | aijainst both Injurious insects anJ plant, diseases." In the experiments so far. Fuller reported that Hie best, results were obtained on flowers, including chrysanthemums and carnations. ••ft should not be looked upon as a cure-all for pest control problems, belli,; limited in application to certain .-.pce-ifi: crops," Fuller reported. "It should be emphasized that selenium or its compounds .should in no ease be used on crops which ultimately may bu used as foi;d for humans or domestic animals." Soils, once treated with Hie solu- plants, Fuller pointed out, This can be clone, he said, by vigorous wash- ini; of Hie soil with water. He said Unit the soil may also be treated with gypsum or some form of sulfur. Fuller said that the recommended rate of application for carna- lions and chrysanlhcmums in soil was one-fourth gram of sod'uim selenate p?r square fool of soil, or one pound p'jr 1800 square feet. Such nlants in the "vaccinated" area will IK immune to spiders,, iipiiids and certain other insects. Even new sprouts that spring from thc ground arc immune.
