THE DAILY, MBSagMGBg, CAKAMPAIGUA, N, f, TUESDAY, JULY 26,1939. Ontario Escapes Brunt of Drought Parching Fields Alfalfa and Pastures Hardest Hit by Dry Weather; Late Set Cabbage Is Spotty As parched fields throughout the state have begun to show serious effects from the prolonged drought, Ontario County crops have suffered comparatively little from the searing rays of sun. County Agricultural Agent Rod- new W. Pease reported today that crops in this area have not been hit . as hard by the lack of rainfall as In other parts of the state, where the worst drought in 50 years has caused crop damage estimated at $50,000,000. Late set cabbage and beets and rrots are spotty, Mr. Pease said, this is due to the dry June |jcr than the recent drought. Aland pasture lands are the tlest hit of Ontario crops by the r drenching sun, he said. The county agricultural agent es- · timates the second cutting of alfalfa as 40 per cent of normal. Pasture lands are in extremely bad condition, with forage for grazing crops at low points. Rains Would Revive Crops Prolonged rains, he stated, will i give a .good late second cutting of alfalfa as well as revive the sun torown pastures. Prospects indicate a good crop of apples, with a comparatively small amount of disease, but insects have been plentiful. The dry weather has kept the disease down and the number of insects up. Because of the dryness. Mr. Pease said, aphis and thrips are doing considerable damage to cabbage plants. Thrips. a comparatively new insect in the county, feeds' on the lower part of the cabbage plant. It is more of a sucking insect than a feeder. Aphis is ! an insect which sucks the juices of the plants. ish color. Dust and sprays recommended by Mr. Pease to control thrips are made from these formulas: Spray -- 1 1-2 to 2 pints of nicotine sulfate; 10 pounds of arsenate of lead; use a prepared spreader or from three to five pounds of soap chips; mix in 100 gallons of water. Dust -- 4 per cent nicotine sulfate dust, 75 pounds; lead arsenate, 75 pounds. The thrips and aphis must be hit by the material to kill them, Mr. Pease emphasized, which must gei on the underside of the leaves to exterminate thrips. The best time tr. apply the dust or spray is during the clay when it is hot and there is no wind, he recommends. Spray and Dust For Worms A spray formula recommended for worms only follows: Lead arsenate. eight to 10 pounds; spreader, soap chips, three to five pounds, or thret pounds of skim milk powder; water. 100 gallons. Dust formula for worm? only follows: lead arsenate, 25 pounds; hydrated lime, 75 pounds. A survey of marketing shows that New York, which normally produces about one-third of the total kraut cabbage in the United States, has an estimated 4,600 acres for 1939. This is 13 per cent below last year and 34 per cent below the state's average production from 1934-1938. Reductions of 27 per cent in Ohio. 4 per cent in Indiana. 36 per cent ir Michigan and 6 per cent in Wisconsin are reported also from last year.
