THE CHARLOCK PEST. Mr. G. F. Strawson, in a report on the de- struction of charlock in corn crops, remarks that extensive practice confirms the; conclu- sion that young charlock can be destroyed in (growing corn crops without injury,' to the latter by spraying with fifty gallons of 3 pei solution of copper sulphate (151b. tc fifty gallons) per statute acre, and old.br char- lock with a stronger solution.. £ orrf 'crops, tares, peas, and beans, he adds, are much im- proved, and give a better yield where char- lock is destroyed,' and young grass sefeds and clover in the corn remain uninjured. Spray- ing early, when the weed is young and in soft fibre, is most profitable, but spraying can be successfully done just as the weed is coming into flower or when in flower.
