Chlorosis of Plants In Texas
The yellowing or loss of color
in leaves of some plants in your
garden or some of your ornamen
fcals or orchard trees or even on
■pots of your field crops is prob
ably a condition called chlorosis,
resulting from a nutritional
disturbance. Chlorosis is dlf-
ferent from the common plant
diseases that are caused by lungi
or bacteria and cannot be sue
cessfully treated by the methods
used for those diseases. It does
not spread from plant to plant
and while the yellowing plants
are often found in groups, that
is because the soil area contains
too much or too little of anv of
several mineral substances. Re
search workers at the Texas
Experiment Station state that
the most common cause of chloro-
sis is an excess of lime in certain
soils which prevents the iron in
the soil from being available to
the plants. Other causes include
the deficiency of potash or nitro
gen, sine, or manganese, excess
of alkali, or defective conditions
of the roots or of the whole tree.
Chlorosis becomes apparent
when the production of green
chlorophyll or coloring matter in
the leaves has been disturbed.
These chlorophyll bodies when
acted upon by sunlight, manu
facto re the feed for the nourish-
ment if the plant and the pro-
duction of these chlorophyll
bodies depend upon the avail
ability of nitrogen, magnesium
and iron. There are two meth
ods of attacking chlorosis, (1) the
actual mechanical application of
iron into or on the plant and (2)
soil treatment to render the iron
already in the soil available to
the plant. The quickest way < f
finding out which is needed is
to spray the leaves with iron
sulphate or zinc sulphate or
manganese sulphate. The one
needed will turn the leaves green
within two weeks
Under Texas conditions many
chlorotic plants will respond to
treatment of the soil with iron
sulphate (copperas). The best
application is 1 part copperas to
from 1 to 5 parts superphosphate
or manure applied in holes a foot
deep and 1 inch in diameter fill-
ing each hole. These holes are
scattered around the plant from
a few inches in the case of small
plants to 3 to 6 feet in the case
of trees, the number of holes
varying with the size of the plant.
Usually about 1 pound of copper
as for each inch in diameter of
the tree trunk is sufficient. In
the cuse of roses or other shrubs
four holes a foot away from the
plant should be sufficient. The
iron sulphate, when concentrated
in the holes in this manner does
not become dissiapted by the
action of lime in the soil so quick-
ly as if the materials were spread
in the soil, thus available sup
plies to the roots of the plants
remain longer; however sulphur
and manure supplemented by
iron sulphate may be effective in
correcting the soil conditions
that cause iron starvation. Pul
verized sulphur with manure
should be worked into the top
■oil about the plant and allowed
to undergo oxidation for several
months after which the iron
sulphate • superphosphate mix-
ture may be applied, thus avoid
lng some of the Interference of
the lime. 8uch a treatment will
ordinarily remove the need for

Clean Dp Week
Beginning March 29
Austin, Texas, March 20 —In
connection with • the Clean Up
Week to be held, beginning
March 29, Dr. John W. Brown,
State Health Officer, urges
citizens of the State to give
special attention toward destroy
ing the -breeding places of flies
With the usual accumulation
of winter’s debris, the necessity
of its prompt removal from the
health standpoint is apparent.
Conditions that foster fly breed-
ing are definitely menacing ta
the welfare of all citizens, and
Plies thrive in dirt. There ie
nothing they like better. They
breed in yards on plots of ground
and on farms where decaying
vegetable and animal matter and
other fly attracting substances
have been permitted to pile up.
To prevent epidemics later in
the season, it is essential that
conditions that represent breed
ing places for flies and moaqui
toes be removed immediately.
All cesspools should be cleaned
and limed And out-bouses should
be made fly proof. It is not
only good housekeeping but the
best kind of common sense health
protection to remove all waste
material in or around the yards
Health week merely starta the
campaign; the success of Clean
Up measures rests entirely on
the shoulders of ths people of
