you'd break off the bloom and pull the suckers then pour this vile oily mess down the stalk from a gallon jug....had a stinky chemical smell.....
I suckered more tobacco than I`d like to remember, and we did it the same way, but the sucker control we used was a white granular. After suckered it I`d grab a handful out of the bucket and drop it on the fresh break and down the stalk.
I never did like to sucker baccer. Them rows went on forever.
