BITTER PIT IN APPLES. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 8 May 1914

BITTER PIT IN APPLES. Some time ago a lively controversy was in progress between a small party who pronounced bitter pit to be caused by spraying, and a largor section ol growers who emphatically declared that bitter pit oxisted before spraying was adopted generally. Through Sir John Forrest, specimens of apples have been received in Mel bourne from the orchard of Mr J. Martin, near Mount Barker, Western Australia, which support the negative view of the growers. Of these apples one set ot Cleopatra variety are oil nine-year-old trees, and have been sprayed with oil and with Bordeaux mixture the season beforo last. These are clean, and a good marketable sample. The other sot comprises Cleopatra and Northern Spy varie ties, off trees over 20 years old, which have never been sprayed, and they are badly pitted. Professor M'Alpine is at present investigating the cause of bitter pit for the Federal authori ties.
