State College Answers
Timely Farm Questions
Q. Should any treatment be giv
en sweet potato plants before
A. Where soils are infected with
stem rot or wilt organism, the stem
and roots of the plants should be
dipped in a 20-20-50 Bordeaux mix
ture or dusted with a mixture com
posed of 25 per cent monohydrated
copper sulphate and 75 per cent
lime just before planting. The .scurf
infected roots and stems should
have a thorough coating of" sulphur
immediately before transplanting.
All treated plants should be set in
moist but not water logged soil.
Q. How can ,1 prevent lice and
mites from infesting my poultry
flock? , f
A. The most effective prevention
is to thoroughly clean and disin
fect the poultry house. Crude pe
troleum, commercial carbolineum,
coal tar stock dips, and a combi
nation of equal parts of spent
motor oil and kerosene are good
for this work! Treatments for con
trol of the different kinds of mites
are given in Extension Circular No.

a 4-4-50 Bordeaux mixture. The
mixture calls for four pounds of

four pounds of chemically hydrated

er or larger amounts should be pre
pared in the same proiortions. Dis
solve, the copper sulphate in one

tainer. The lime is put in the re
maining water and, when the two
are prepared, pour the copper sul
