Stimulation to deciduous fruit trees has been noted from a number of different sprays, but the greatest amount has occurred after using the heavy types of Miscible oils.

Stimulation is due partly to the heavy oil base and partly to the emulsifiers in them.

The condition of the tree and soil and time of spraying are factors in the amount of stimulation to be obtained from the oil spray. The spray must be applied between December 15th and February 1st to be certain of it.

Although there may be some disadvantages, the advantages are many such as: 1. The early bloom makes the fruit set early, thereby corning ahead of the emergence of the Thrips, insuring more and cleaner fruit. 2. Causes early formation of large green leaves, covering small fruit, protecting it from sunburn and frost. 3. The fruit gains much of its growth before natural moisture evaporates. 4. Causes tree to function properly, producing larger crops and larger fruit, and 5. Fruit will be harvested earlier, insuring better prices.
