Avold;all kinds of filth, especially undrained cow lots deep in manure. ··'· ; ' 3. Avoid milking machine damage by seeing that cow has let the. milk down before the machine is attached and removed as soon as the m i l k flow slops. 4. Milk infected cows last, and dip the milk cups in chlorine between each milking. · ·· There are many other precautions, t h a t one should ctiidy ' closely especially the precaution of beginning with a clean herd. The United States today has one pel- cent less milk per person than it had one year ago. The future of dairying is still brlg-ht. Now is the time to make plans for 1953 and 1854 and. · among those plans should be a . plan to rid your herd of mastitis. Dr. Peterson' says it can be done. . Various Insecticides Prove Effective For Control Of Curculios, ^^Specialists Find Some Far Better Than Others There are several Insecticides now-'~- available to. fruit growers that will satisfactorily corMl curculios irtiroperly ;use«i. ·No tn- scctlcide wil Icpritrol curculios unless properly, applied. The : basic schedule as given in Leaflet No. 81, "Spraying Peaches, Plums and Cherries," ip still sound.

Where heavy populations occur special applications for their;.control may need to be added to the schedule. Where extra sprays are applied using organic insecticides, zinc-lime may be omitted unless needed^ for bacterial spot control. Many of the organic insecticides are reduced in effectiveness when used with lime. When organic'in- secticides are used, fixed zinc; if available, used in place of zinc-lime. Examples of fixed zinc are Tennessee Nu-Z or SHerwin- Wi'lliams Zinc Oxide. These materials are no more effective for bacterial spot control than zinc- lime but they do not need lime in the mixing.

We've Been Serving You 20 Yeart SMITH RADIO SHOP satisfactory insect control in the past may wish to try different insecticides. The following gives current data regarding insecticides that have been employed for curculio control and those that have been promising in experimental plots: Lead Arsenate . Many growers continue to get excellent curcullo control with lead arcenate. It is extremely slow in killing curculios and for that reason may not be entirely satisfactory against overwintering adults. Even-if it .Is not used in the early sprays you may wish to use it against'first generation adults in the month before harvest period. Use of lead arsenate at that time appears to'help relieve the Oriental fruit moth problem, presumably by its effect in .checking tree growth. !H should not be relied upon for Oriental fruit moth control, however. Pertinent information regarding its use Is given in Leaflet No." 81. Methoxychlor Tests the past three years have shown methoxychlor to b« very effective in killing curculio adults. The results have been better against .overwintering a d u l t s methoxychlor has proved to be ps effective as parathion. One of the Rrcatcst assets of mcthoxchlqr is its relative safety. It is only one- tenth as hazardous to use as DDT. However, it is a relatively expensive materials at the usual dosage. It has some effect against Oriental fruit moth, but Is not as effective as DDT and should 'not be relied on for control. Where methoxy- chlor is used it is suggested that it be tried at the rate of three! · ' * ' * . , three seasons in Arkansas tests. It has'--long,^residual. action and coniftl should not be used within 60 days ·Nd'in- of-hirveit.. According to some re- portj it is one-fifth as toxic to the operator as parathion at the usual dosage, but it may accumulate, in .the system, making continuous exposure highly -dangerous toy.the operator Dieldrin is not effective against Oriental fruit moth. Lave! claims, for-use of dieldrih on fruit insects have not been accepted by the U.S.D.A., .but it is available and will be used by some '. fruit growers'this year. If you plan to try it, use necessary precautions, in handling it. Is shou!d:b,e'used at the rate.of four ounces of actual dieldrin (ie. one pound of 25 per cent wettable powder) to 100 gallon ot water. It should not be 1 used later.than the 1 two weeks'spray. Parathion ." . ^: !J . . X A number .of growers have usec parathion the.past two.yers both on peaches and apples. Extension service has not recommended anc still does not recomrntnd'- para thiorf (or other organic phos abates) on fruit · because of th :oxicity to the operator. Where safety precautions-are strictly ad- lered to parathipn can .be use safely, barring accidents. It is ef- ective in killing adult curculios but has very limited residual action. This is. a distinct''.disad- vantage especially where curcu- lios continue to enter-an orchart over a long period. Parathion is .said to control scale and Oriental fruit moth as well as curculio Much caution should be exercised in substituting parathipn for .-trie measures now successfully" employed, fo rthe control .of these pests. If parathion is to be used all safety precautions advocated by the manufacturer should be strictly followed. Other organic phosphates--A number of organic phosphates besides parathion are on the market. Some like EPN are claimed to have longer residual action than parathion. Others are claimed to be somewhat less hazardous to use than partition. If any of these materials are used the some precautions should be followed as with parathion. BHCr-BHC is not very, effective against curculio adults . at the dosage used. It docs have'an advantage over some other materials in that it kills immature stages in the" fruit. Two serious disadvantages of BHC are the likelihood of its causing off-flavor in the fruit at harvest and the fact that cover crops can't be grown in some areas where accumulation of BHC from fruit spraying has occurred. Most peach growing areas appear to have eliminated BHC entirely from their schedules. If BHC is to be used at all three gamma dust in one or two applications not later than one week after shuck split as a supplement to a spray schedule may be beneficial.
