The advantages of using skim milk or milk powder in the preparation of certain sprays are discussed. A method is outlined for the use of milk in preparing a substitute for the different sulfur sprays used as summer fungicides. A mineral oil emulsion that may be prepared by using skim milk, and hydrated lime as an emulsifier is described. The use of skim milk, any of the condensed milks, or milk powder as a spreader is emphasized. These products will improve the spreading properties of the spray as well as calcium caseinate, and at a much lower cost.
