 CHEMICAL CONTROL.
Where we have to deal with
heavy infestations, x^rtfrol by j
chemical snnaiig\6asms to offer I
the^fl b JlLppdisibilities. Copper
nitrjta spray offers more hope in
thalflnrection. Not only is the copper toxic to the dandelions, but
the nitrate acts as fertilizer.
Spraying should be done on a
clear day, preferably in the forenoon. One half hour after the
spraying, it is possible to see
the dandelions wilt, and although
the grass does, not appear to be
injured at the time, it discolors
slightly later.
Two per cent, of copper nitrate
(by weight) solution applied at
the rate of 200 gallons per acre,
has been found to give the best
results.
On small areas a solution made
up of seven and half gallons of
water and one and a half pounds
of copper nitrate, applied as a
fine spray, will control dandelions on an area of 1000 square
feet.
