The practical results of the most recent investigations and experiments have been embodied in it- and technical terms, so far as possible, have been excluded.The development of the practice of spraying crops furnishes a striking illustration of the practical results agriculture may derive from scientific investigation and accurate experimentation.

Little more than a decade has passed since Professor A. J. Cook, then of the Michigan Agricultural College, began his experiments in spraying apples to prevent the injuries caused by the Codling Moth - experiments which first proved to the horticultural public that the remedy was safe and sure - and to his enthusiastic advocacy of the process American fruit-growers are largely indebted for the introduction of spraying machinery.

The success which followed spraying for the Codling Moth naturally led to experiments in spraying for other insects, and later for fungous diseases- our early knowledge of remedies for the latter being largely due to the efforts of Messrs. Scribner and Galloway, of the United States Department of Agriculture.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
