TEH FRIDAY, JULY 25, 1952 FARM NEWS Spraying Rigs Should be Calibrated For Better Insecticide Distribution Rr H. If.

Too little or too much water in relnlion i Spred of Spray Rig to the amount- of Instctlrlcte will t Mi]ps Pfir HflHr result In your spray rig pimmp out too little or too much Insecticide per acre. To determine how much Insecticide and how much water to mix, you must first know DIP capacity of your spray ris. in gallons of spray that it puts out per acre. Under a gix'en set of opera tine conditions, your spray rig puts out a definite amount of spray per acre. Four factors affect the capacity of the spray rig. They are: <n number of nozzles per row.

Assume a recommendation ot toxaphene at (he rate, of 3 pints per acre. Assume further that 32 acres of cotton are to be sprayed. To determine the amount of, insecticide and the amount of water (total spray* necessary (or the assumed 32 acres, multiply the en- parity -of the spray rig (l.fi3 gal. per acre> by 32.

Subtracting the 12 gallons of In- ticidfi from the 49 gallons of mixr-d spray, gives 37 gallons, tti« amount of water to mix with the 12 gallons of Insecticide to give 49 gallons of spray for the 32 acres of cotton For accuracy, old nn/./le tips .should be thoroughly fore using Her? is a (prick. easy way to check the. accuracy of your nozzle tips.

Then, repeat this test on your other no7zles.

As the twlUvorm season approaches, every cotton grower wants to know "What's the oe.^t insecticide?" Actually, no ono chemical so far tried will provide top control of bollworm. But . . . field tests prove that certain combinations of chemicals tier give effective control. A mixture of dlcldrin and DDT is one of the most deadly boll worm killers of all . . . more lethal than either insecticide alone. Used as a dust or a spray, the combination provides excellent control with relnlively small dosages. The same dust or spray gels tha boll weevil, fleahoppor, tarnished nnd rapid plant bug. grasphopjx?rs nnd a host of other pests. Where large areas of cotton must bo protected from bollworm damage, and low cost is a primary consideration, olHrin-nnf mixtures provide profitable control at the lowest cost i«r aero. Whichever combination 13 used, the timing and form of application (dust or spray) should follow the practice proved best in your area. See your insecticide deafer SHELL CHEMICAL CORPORATION P. O.
