\-< i you say were the -
trouble?_ N


/Oh, yes, I remember,
Ted's demonstrations
He showed us how tod
kill them.

Nematodes, Bobby! \
They are not toads,
but are tiny eel-
worms living in,/
the soi l. ---


That's right!-

together and I'll show you,
how it is done. O.k. ?,,

\ ". .. First, we open a furrow about 6
Inches deep down the row where you will
plant."

This old mayonnaise
jar and lid are
just what we need .
to put the d
D-D In the -
furrow. /:,. -

' . Put a small hole In the
edge of the lid. This will let
a tiny trickle come out when the
jar Is turned upside down, We
want to put pint of D-D every
100 feet. So, we.must 'calibrate'
our jar."


STo /o calibrate, put 2 pint of water \
*/ .-- in the jar. Then trickle the water
down the furrow. Find out how fast
/ you must walk to empty the jar in
J00 feet.

Now, put in the real thing.\
Try to keep the D-D off
your hands while pouring.


I always use rubber
gloves when mixing
all my garden chemicals.


By walking at the same
speed as I did with the)
water, I know I am
putting out the right
amount.

We must cover the fumigant>
right away, Bobby, to keep
it from escaping.


This part I think I
can do, Mr. Brown./


























Well, Bobby, that's
Show it's done. Think
vou can do it now?


No, Bobby! You must
e ,. wait about two weeks
to let the soil air out.

Sure seems easy enough,

Come on, Bobby! You're-\
supposed to catch today!
Boy, you sure sp<
a lot of time in
? -,,\your garden!


Wait till I finish this)
fumigating!
