Title:The Effect of Petroleum-oil Sprays on Insects and Plants
Author(s):Farrar, M.D.
Subject(s):Petroleum-oil Spray
Insect pests -- Control
Abstract:The ratio between saturated and unsaturated hydrocarbons in an oil determines to a large extent the [use of that oil as an insecticide on either dormant or nondormant plants. The viscosity, volatility and degree of dispersion are important properties which affect both plant tolerance and insecticidai eflficiency. Spreading properties of unit volumes of spray are nearly identical as to coverage and time. Preparation of emulsions for these experiments was by the Whiting method.
