The best result .was obtained with the sulphur, where not only was the am ,unt of disease reduced to less than one-half of that in the untreated plots, but thoe total yield was higher than in any other case; This result confirms previous experimcnts carried out at Olifden,. whioh have always shown that sulphur added to the soil increases the yield of potatoes and diminishes the attack of scab, Similar results have bhen obtained by workers elsewhere as regards the increase of c...
