Soil insects had attacked root systems. Results: Tangled rows, missing hills, and poorly developed corn. But the story was different with the aldrin-treated rows! Root destroyers such as wireworms, white grubs, rootworms, and other soil pests were effectively brought under control. Plants developed healthy root systems. Result: Bigger yields of top-quality corn. You, too, may increase yields and stop corn lodging by using aldrin for soil insect control. All you need for effective kill is a few ounces of aldrin. Aldrin can be used as a spray, as granules, or mixed with fertilize* It is easy to apply as a row or broadcast treatment. Aldrin is available under well-known brand names from your insecticide or fertilizer dealer.
