Examine Camelias and Other

camelias at one place heavily
infested with spider mites. Gar
denias become infested with
i! Malathion is one rtf the good
nsecticides to use and will con
trol most all insects. Follow the
directions on the container. It
is well to mix the insecticide
With soapy water, the soap
serves as a spreader and sticker.
Spray under side of leaves also.
Starr or Pearl Millit is a good,
quick-growing grazing crop for
the summer. Fertilize the soil
with 300 to 500 pounds of 8-8-8
or 10-10-10 fertilizer. The seed- (
ing rate per acre is eight pounds
jfi rows or 20 to 25 pounds
ma This crop may be planted any j
**me from April 15 to July 1.
Start grazing when the crop is
8 to 12 inches high . If grazing
is rotated and not grazed too
closely, it will sprout up and
continue to make grazing. Side
sdressing with nitrogen just as-
each grazing will stimulate

have been found in some beds
in the southern part of the state.
Blue Mold has not been found
yet but is expected.
With late plant it
is important that diseases and
insects be controlled in the plant
beds. Tobacco Specialist R. R.
Bennett recommends that grow
ers start spraying beds at once.
Continue spraying beds every 3
to 4 days until plants are set
in the field.

arranged for this equipment to
i)e used in demonstration work
on this day. We will be de

blade is used to destroy undesir
able growth preparatory to re
seeding or planting. In this
