(UP)—Some 25 former . war pilots are operating converted Army and Navy training planes In what Is probably the largest crop - dusting campaign in the world. -i The 25 planes can dust 25,000 acres * day and the 500.000 acres j in Imperial Valley are dusted at least once each yenr. Some sections are dustea twice and even three times a j'ear. The work is dangerous because the pilots fly only two or four feet above the ground, but only three planes have cracked up In the past year and no pilot" has been Injured. The poison used In the spraying Is the war-time developed DDT powder, which is used in five and JO per cent strengths. I Attack Successful | The planes can apply the spray j nt the critical moment when the I soil is wet a,nd other equipment ran't get on the field. The aerial attack on the millions and trillions of bugs, worms and insects that inhabit this rich agricultural district Is successful in all but one case. That is the aphis which carries mosaic, a virus that attacks melons. The problem is the object of research by California universities and experimental stations. The pilot miist do all the dusting either in the early morning or late In the afternoon. Hs starts »l dawn and flies till 7 a.m. and again at 4 p.m. until! dusk. About 500 acres can be. handled in one shift, with a cost t.o the former of about $2.^0 per acre. Three Dustings for Lettuce Lettuce Is dusted first for cutworms, then for green worm and loopers, and a third time for thrip. The thrip is also dangerous to the melon. Flax requires one application per season to control the beet army worm. Beets require three treatments per season. Most of the cereal grains require no dusting. Recently, 3,000 acres ot cotton were dusted below the border In Mexico. The treatment was so successful that next season 40,000 acres of,cntton will be given the aerial treatment. I NOW!
