I EXPERIMENT IN ORCHARD CULTIVATION 1
An Old Apple
(By M n CONOVKU)
Tho orchard in question was in sod
of permanent orchard-grass when it
came Into my possession four years
ago, having been seeded two or three
years before. Three of tho four years
since I bought it, this section has suf
fered severe di oughts in the sum
mer. Thero wns quite a lot of dead wood
In tho orchard, and this was cut out
tho first year. The scars healed over
with bark in many instances, indicat
ing a vigorous condition of the trees.
The noxt year a more drastic prun
ing was given, and the succeeding
year a good crop of fruit was borne.
Tho soil of an adjoining field re
ceived thorough cultivation, and this
extended under the outer row of ap
ple trees. The third year the trees
through the center of the orchard be
gan to die back to an alarming degreo
and the foliage turned a sickly yel
Examination revealed no scale in
sect, but I feared some Invisible pest
was at work in my orchard and my
trees must go. However, early last
spring I turned under tho sod in the
entire orchard and have cultivated
the soil all the, season. Tho trees
are toning up, but It is going to take
more than a couple of years to get
back to normal condition if not
KILLING BORERS IN
THE ORCHARD TREES
Apple and Peach Growers Alike
Must Deal With Pest No
Tho fall Is tho best time In tho
year to examine the trees for traces
of wood borers. Tho apple grower
and tho peach grower alike must deal
with these pests that are often unno
ticed until they have seriously injured
It takes a careful examination to
detect tho presence of these borers
when they arc first beginning to in
jure tho trees. You can usually lo
cate them by tho dust, like sawdust,
only finer, that is thrown out by tho
borer as It strikes deeper Into tho
bark and wood, says an Illinois writer
In Farm Progress. These "castings"
are found near tho surface of tho
ground In most Instances.
If the trecB are badly affected by
the larvae of tho borers they may
look weak and sickly- An early yel
lowing of the leaves on certain trees
should be Investigated as this may
mean that tho borers aro endnngerlng
tho life of the trees. It Is better to
glvo tho trees some Inspection from
time to tlmo in order to head off any
nttack in season to prevent actual
Give especial attention to trees in
sodde'd orchards. Thoy are very like

those standing in weedy orchards.
Clean cultivation Is about tho best
Insurance against tree loss from bor
ers and this has been shown tlmo nnd
tlmo again in orchards whero a pnrt
of tho area had been cultivated and
tho rest permitted to grow up in
weeds. Tho greater number of affect
ed trees were found In the weedy and
grow n-up portions.
Do not overlook tho fact that all
parts of the treo trunk and tho bigger
branches aro liable to attack by tho
borers. In old orchards particularly,
the bigger limbs should be examined
for fresh traces of tho borers. Tho
Insects are usually found In the soft
er white or sap wood, but in badly
affected trees they seem to boro deep
ly and almost honeycomb tho treo
trunk to a depth of several Inches
sIth their tunnels.
There are no proventlvo measures
that aro reliable. Some people paint
tho treo bark around the trunk with a
mixture of whalo oil sonp solution
and crude -cnrbollc acid. To a gallon
of a paintlike mixturo of tho soap
nn ounce .of the crude carbolic Is add

Tho trees on the outer edge, which
received cultivation last year, have
suffered no dying back, but havo
grown long, vigorous branches which
nre now bending to tho ground be
neath a load of fruit, and the foliage
Is of a fine, dark green.
If I had turned the sod under tho
first year I havo no doubt that my
crop of apples would have been abun
dant, judging from the cultivated
trees, yet the soil has hurt no fertilizer
asido from the turned under sod.
I believe that two years is long
enough for any orchard to be kept In
sod. Of course, a clover sod would
have given better results.
Judging from the appearance ot
many orchards over this section of
the country, I believe some growers
aro putting too much faith in sod;
that is, they are leaving the sod upon
tho orchards too long, and wherovei
this is being dono the trees look nbout
as mine did.
I havo a row of Baldwin apple trees
along a larae.. A wide strip of fine
sod has grown under them on tho
roadsido for many years, but tho field

vation. The trees nre healthy and vigorous

the trees in good condition.

The only way to get at the borers
le to dig them out of the wood and
crush them. Some people use a stiff
strong wire nnd when the borer is la
cated tho wire is thrust into tho tun
nel and tho tunneler is killed In thnl
way. But you can't always bo cer
tain that you hnve managed to kill
tho Insect with the wlro.
A bolter plan Is to go Into the
orchard with a good sharp, heavy
bladed knife and a stout piece of wire

By pushing it into tho hole nnd feel

evidence of Us presenco on the end
of tho wlro when that is withdrawn.
In the fall, when the leaves are
just beginning to loosen, the borers
are more easily found. Children arc
helpful in finding nnd killing then
with tho wires. If they nro taught
