WISCONSIN HORTICULTURE 
      WHEN DOCTORS DISAGREE 
  The use of lime sulphur as a sumi- 
mer spray is yet in the experimental 
stage. A few enthusiasts are now rec- 
ommending     its use exclusively   but 
xxe must await further trials.     Cer- 
tainly  every one who     Sprays  hopes 
that it may dlisplace Bordeatux and 
hone more fervently than those whose 
task it is to give out iniformutitint. 
Ilow   perfectly simnpe and e'isy     to

   Pie Control of the Apple Scab.- 
It will be seen from this table that 
the home-made linie-sulphur solution 
on I the Bordemix mixture both held 
the scabI down to about six per cent of 
the crop, while practically all of the 
unsprayed fruit was scabby. The plot 
sprayed with the eomniiercial solution 
hind the Io west percentage of Scabby 
fruit (2.2), hut this wtis probably due 
to a udifference in the plots and not in 
the fungicides. It wuhld seem      front 
these results    u and those obtained it,
