SODIUM CYANIDE FOR FUMIGATION. [Newspaper Article] — Tamworth Observer and Northern Advertiser — 29 July 1910
SODIUM CYANIDE FOR FUMI , GATIOX. . Professor Woglum, of tho Californian De partment of Agriculture, reports on experi . incuts in respect to the use of sodium evan . ide instead of potassium cyanide iu the fumi gation of trees. In view of his definite state ment as to its safety, efficacy, and clieap ?lioss, the question is one of ;;rcat interest to our citrus-glowers. Ho savs — 'Potassium cyanide, when absolutely pure, produces 100 ? per cent. !j,as. Sodium cyanide of equal' purity will produce 133 per cent, gas, or one thud more than the potassium. Results ob tained by use of sodium have proven- just as satisfactory as .potassium in the killing pm, ' ? er on tho* different scales. The cost of tin best sodium is 3 cents to i ccnts ;i pound moio than potassium. The sodium produce.1 at least 25' por cent, more gas, saving there ;..? b- fioin (i cents to 7 cents on each- nound It in, therefore, readily nol K-eahl'e that it! una will save considerable money.
