Buy Article:


The efficacy of a casein spreader (Kayso) in the commonly recommended sprays for apple and peach has been studied for the second season. These sprays, with al:\d without the spreader, were mixed by the writers and applied by the regular orchard force.

The seeond season's results parallel those of thc first year's work. There is no indication that the incorporation of the spreader with the usual sprays influenced the protection of the fruit from insects and diseases. The conclusion is that the use of a casein spreader (Kayso) in the apple and peach sprays under orchard conditions in Virginia is not justified from the standpoints of effectiveness and economy.
