Sulphuring For Mildew

For two years I have not sulphured my vineyard and had no mildew. My

vines seem as healthy and thrifty as any of the neighbors' that were

duly sulphured. Have I lost anything by not sulphuring?

Certainly not. In sections where mildew is practically sure to come,

sulphur should be used regularly as a preventive without waiting for the

appearance of the disease. There are, however, many locations,

especially in the interior valley, where the occurrence of mildew is

rare in sufficient volume to do appreciable harm, and then sulphuring

should depend upon the weather, which favors mildew or otherwise. But be

always on the watch and have everything ready to sulphur immediately;

also learn to recognize the conditions under which appearances of mildew

become a menace.
