Many orchards Iu Cherokee Coun
tv are afreet d by some kind of
blight, and A. B. Cunningham sent
some of the affected twigs to the
experiment station. Stillwater, and in
reply received the followln.. letter:
The following is the press bulletin
"Your letter of recent date and
the apple twigs sent to the experi-
n ent station have been reft rred to
me lor consideration. These twigs
show the presence of pear blight,
sometimes called (ire blight. En-
closed >o;i will find a small prfss
bulletin giving a brief description
of the disease. There is no known
method of combatting the disease ex-
cept by following some practice or
process in the cultivation that will
r duce the rate of growth of the
trees and at the same time c it
away all diseased and infested wood.
If the orchard is in a high state of
cultivation, it Is a good plan to
sow some crop on the ground. Cow
pease are a good crop for this pur-
pose. Aside from the cowpfas, it is
sometimes advisable to let the or
chard grow to weeds and grass, and
by some such method check the
.growth of the trees. The disease
develops most rapidly in the rapid
growing shoots. These shoots con-
tain large quantities of sap and the
tissue is very soft. Any thing that
will check the growth wil reduce
the amount of sap In the twigs and
cause a more woody, hard develop-
ment of the tissue. Follow the two
processes together making sure that
in cutting off diseased twigs that
you cut below the lowest point of
infection and the disease can be
practically eliminated. It cannot be
eliminated by anything less than an
extremely vigorous effort.

The pear blight is doing a great
ileal of damage in many orchards in
Oklahoma. This disease attacks the
pair, apple, crab and q;iince. It is
a bacterial or germ disease and lives
in the sap of the plant and works
In the growing tissue. It is most
prevalent in seasons of excessive or
rapid growth. The g rms gain en-
trance to the sap of the plunt through
the nectar glands in the blossoms
and through the punctures in the
bark of young tender shoots. These
punctures iu tin* bark of the young
shoots may lie made by hail or in-
sects, such as plant lice, or by
biting or chewing insects that bite
through the tender hark.
If the infectoln is through the
flowers, the young fruit soon turns
black and shrivel but usually hang
on the tree. The disease spreads
rapidly to the adjacent green twigs
and leaves, which in turn become
discolored and wither. The pear
twigs and leaves turn black and
the apple and crab twigs and leaves
turn brown. The bark on the large
limbs turns black and withers slight-
ly. The disease spreads rapidly and
in extreme cases it has been known
to kill trees in a few days.
As this disease works in the plant
and not on the surface it cannot be
checked or destroyed by spraying or
any other similar treatment. The
only thing that is left to do is to
cut off the diseased wood and thus
prevent the disease from spreading
to all parts of the tree. In cutting
off diseased branches, the cut should
be made several inches below the
lowest point of infection. The dis-
eased branches should lie removfd
m 'his disease is much worse some
seasons than others, and is also
much worse on some varieties than
on others. The Keiffi r pear Is al-
most blight proof. The Bartlett pear
is especially susceptible to the
blight. I his quality of disease.re
sistance is not well understood and
there lias bt en little information
about it. There seems to
I , "" r''c°rd of the susceptibility of
the different varieties of apples to
this disease. A record of this kind
... it made upon sufficient dat and pub
W lished would be of great interest to
W ,who e*l>ect to plant orchards
| in Oklahoma in the near future.
