An Article about Spraying for the Amateur Fruit Grower
This vintage book contains a complete guide to spraying fruit as a method of pest control, with information on machinery, ingredients, preparation methods, and more. Profusely illustrated and written in plain language, this book is highly recommended for novice agriculturalists, and would make for a worthy addition to collections of farming literature. Contents include: "Bordeaux Mixture", "Fighting Insects", "Paris Green", "Arsenate of Lead", "Lime-Sulphur Wash", "Self-Boiled Lime-Sulphur", "Soluble Oils", "Kerosene Emulsion", "Dust Spraying", "Spray Machinery", "The Spraying Campaign", etcetera. Frank Albert Waugh (1869 - 1943), was an American landscape architect whose career focused upon recreational uses of national forests, the production of a highly natural style of landscape design, and the implementation of ecological principles. Many vintage texts such as this are becoming increasingly rare and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now, in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on fruit growing.
