Abstract
Numerous planters have been complaining of bad attacks of leaf rust which are now developing on their bushes and asking for advice on what to do about it.It is of course now too late for spraying to have any beneficial result as the spots developing during the present period are the result of infections which started building up much earlier in the year.It will be remembered that a warning was issued in January that Hemileia was likely to be bad this year and that spraying should be carried out before or at the beginning of the Long Rains.Many of the outbreaks now developing are the consequence of neglect of this warning or of spraying with inefficient apparatus which did not give a sufficiently good cover of fungicide.
