Spray Notes:: The delayed dormant spray of copper or ferbam for scab control should be
completed before new growth is advanced. Meta-Systox-R is recommended for aphid con-
trol on ncn-bearing trees that are not expected to bear'fruit for 1 year. Demeton
(Systcx) can be used to control aphids on orange, grapefruit and lemon trees bearing
fruit, but a 21 day waiting period between application and harvest must be observed.
The 1968 Cicrus Spray and Dust Schedule.is now available from the Florida Citrus
Commission, Lakeland, and from county agents.
