Do not be mUled by the uinufai turer or dealer who baa
aomelhlng "Just as good.' although be may have a product
which la called a lime-sulphur lu some other form
Due manufacturer has advertised that 8ft pounds of Ibelr
'dry" llme-eulphur will accomplleh Ihe same reeull as one
barrel of the liquid form This statement, as well aa other
statements In their advertising haa been made lo mislead Ihe
growers, as 80 pouuds of ihelr material will make, when used
as directed, only 4ft0 gallons of dilate spray, while one bO-gal
loa barrel of "KKX" Ltiue rtulphur Solution, when used aa di
rected 1 1 gallon lo I gallons of water), will make nol less than
i .e gallous of dilute spray, aud when used al 1 lo ft, as most
growers um it, will make &00 gallons
, .EPKU'IKM'Y and COST are the only standards by which
spray materials can be compared
ft pounds of tha "dry" repreaeate the total combined sul
phur and lime In Ihia product, of which nol lo exceed II
pounda can be aulphar. One Ift-galla barrel of "HEX" I.IMK
sri.riil'K SOLUTION ooutalaa not lees thaa 184 poaads of
SULPHUR, or a total of 194 to ill pouuds of combined sul
phur and lime, par cent of tbe amlphur beiag in a sulphide
or efficient form, and the tola! of 194 to 111 pounds being
soluble or tn solution
As 8ULPHUR Is tbe EKPH'IKNT content it is hard to be
liete, and atill harder to figure, that tft pounds of aay product
cau or will do tba work of 194 poaads ot ihe Mate material
when tued for tho aaaae purpose.
IP you would um 194 pounda of their "dry, aad If tha total
194 pounds eould go iato solatlon, then It Is our opinion, the
194 pounda would equal one 10-galloa barrel of "REX." How
ever, as It DOES NOT all go lato solution it la necessary that
aa excess of 194 pounds be used to equal in EFFICIENCY one
iU galloa berrel of "REX."
After well considering the COMPARATIVE EFFICIENCY
let us hgure lha COMPARATIVE C08T.
"DRY" coals, f. a. . Payette. Ho per pound Whan used aa
recommended 100 pounds will make 60ft gallons of dilute spray
at a coat of 111 00. or lft.011 par gallon.
"REX" costs, f. o. b Payette. Z0c per gallon. Whan used u
recommended & gallons will make iftft gallons of dilute spray
al a cost of I lft. Oft. or 10.02 per galloa.
If tha "dry were to be used at EFFICIENCY 8TRENOTH
EQUAL TO "HEX" It would require aol lath thaa 114 pounds,
at lXc par pound, making a tout coat of 18134 for 100 gallons!
or ft.48ftl per gallon of dilute spray.
It Is traa a dealer mo make a greater profit selling tha "dry "
thaa ha can by elling the liquid; tn fact, ha cam make more
thaa 10ft par Mat greater profit, but can you, a grower, afford
to risk you season s work and your entire crop to onabla him
