GIVES DRY ROT DATA
Editor Glacier : Some time ego there
appeared in your columns a letter ask
ing for information concerning some of
the orchard problems of the valley.
To adequately answer all of the ques
tions we fear that much valuable space
in the newspaper would be employed,
perhaps to the impairment of the issue.
However, a number of the questions
asked are of much interest to many
growers in the valley and we are glad
to present such information on the sub
ject as is available.
It is regrettable that all of the facts
which bring about dry rot and core rot
of apples are not known. These dis
eases are classified ; as physiological
troubles, there being no definite fungus
or insect organisms associated with
them. Troubles of this sort are irreg
ular in occurrence and must be traced
back to some unbalanced condition,
either in soil moisture, plant food or
perhaps something irregular within the
tree itself, probably induced by some
of Itbe conditions already mentioned.
Usually in extreme cases we find tree
injury associated with these two
troubles in the form of Dieback or so
called Rosette. A well known Aus
tralian author on this subject has pre'
pared five volumes and has spent many
years investigating the cause, but in
his conclusions he is unable to place
his finger upon the set of conditions
which bring about this trouble.
under our conditions at least, we
can positively state that thorough
orchard practices, such as careful cul
tivation and rotation with cover crops,
supplemented with uniform irrigation.
has in many instances corrected large
acreage severely affected by this con
dition. However, there are many ex
ceptions, and the trouble often contin
ues to develop regularly despite the
fact that growers have been very care
lul with these practices. Ihis prob
ably leads us to a point below the sur
face of the ground, and it is quite
probable if we could picture a cross
section of this soil condition, that is.
the ground throughout the year with
reference to its dryness or its exces
give water condition, we would be sur
Many observations that we have
made lead us to believe that during
some parts of the year, and perhaps
for only a short time, water has be
come over-abundant, resulting in some
mechanical injury to the feeding roots
or the trees. We have made some oo
servations here at Hood River, with
reference to the water table in some
orchards, and have found this very
high even on ground which would have
the appearance of good drainage. It
was probably due to this fact that dry
rot and core rot developed, causing so
much damage in these orchards. Jn
one particular case as the water table
lowered, the dry rot diminished pro
gressively until not present at all. It
would seem then, that growers should
more critically understand their soil
moisture and particularly the rise and
fall of their water table if they are ex
periencing much trouble of this sort.
An examination should be made at def
inite intervals throughout the year, as
it would take regular observations, say
not to exceed every three or four
weeks to accurately determine this
water condition because of fluctuations
that occur during the season. We be
lieve that drainage employed along
with the practices suggested would
materially reduce this trouble.
In next week's issue, we will discuss

CAN BE CONTROLLED SAYS McCULLAGII
Moss can be controlled if not com
pletely eradicated from the lawn by
making conditions unfavorable for its
growth reports A. L. Peck, professor
of landscape gardening and floricul
ture, at O..A. C.
;. "Many persons encourage the
growth of moss by cutting the grass
too often or too short, and by watering
the lawn too oiten or too late in the
season," says Professor Peck.
"Grass and all plants take their en
ergy from the sun through their leaves
or foliage. If the leaves of a rose
bush were constantly being plucked
the bnsh would not thrive. Yet that is
exactly what happens to the grata
plant every time tne lawn is cut. The
plant is devitalized to sucji an extent
by too frequent cutting and too short

cutting that it is unable to compete
with its hardy rival tne moss.'
Moss thrives on a damp surface,
hence the lawn should not be watered
too late in the season, warns this ane
cialist. The ground must have an op
portunity to become dry occasionally.
Shaded lawns are more subject to the
moss evil than lawns in a favorable
The condition of the ground may also
encourage moss growth, but this can
be remedied by spreading air-slacked
lime or fine wood ashes over the lawn,
either in the fall or in the spring,
- If the lawn is already covered with
moss it should be thoroughly raked
early in the spring. This is the only
treatment now used. Where conditions
are favorable for the growth of moss
steps should be taken to prevent its
growth. An ounce of prevention is
worth a pound of cure and often saves

the fall or in the spring. It is often
desirable to plant one crop in the fall
ana follow this with another crop in
the spring, fall sowfbg should take
place early or immediately after the
nrst rain sets in. fepring sowing should
be done just as soon as the frost is out
of the ground, or about the middle of
April, ibis gives the younz grass a
chance to establish itself before the
severe summer heat comes on. Pro
fessor Peck favors spring sowing be
cause germination is more rapid at
that time and, in general, the results
are more satisfactory.

which should not be attempted unless

Kentucky blue grass is excellent for

Red top shows results more auicklv
than blue grass and will thrive on a
sandy soil. This makes a fine combin

grass grows quickly and shows almost
immediate results. This also makes an
excellent combination with blue crass
for some sections .of the country, but
its use is discouraged in Oregon be

hard to cut with a lawn mower. The
cultivation of English rye grass for
lawns has not met with success in this
state, due to climatic conditions. Various-leaved
fescue is good for shady
and moist places. Rhode Island bent

used to bind banks or Bloping places.
It also has a crenping habit and irrows
