Additional experiments with paradichlorobenzene dissolved in high-test gasoline and applied around the bases of the peach trees were conducted in the spring and fall of 1927. Results of the tests appear to indicate that the solution form of treatment, even without preparation of the soil before treatment and without banking with soil following the application, is as effective as the application of the crystals made in the usual way. The use of varying proportions of the solvent in excess of 50 c.c. to 1 ounce of paradichlorobenzene apparently decreases the efficiency of the treatment.
