During the summer of 1908 experiments were carried on in various parts of South Dakota in order to determine the effectiveness of spraying with iron sulphate and other chemicals for the killing of weeds. Arrangements were made with the American Steel and Wire Company of Chicago, Ill., who manufacture the iron sulphate, to co-operate with this Station in the work. The company consequently furnished the services of an expert, together with spraying machines and ample quantities of the sulphate.
