This paper discusses tests on the adherence of some dust materials to growing and mature foliage. The addition of lime to lead arsenate greatly increased the loss of arsenic. Lead arsenate adhered better than did calcium arsenate. In adherent properties drying oils were superior to non-drying oils. The relation of leaf expansion and meteorological factors to arsenic concentration and adherence is discussed.
