True or false?

1.) When dormant, or late dormant, it's OK to put oil on when the night
time temperatures drop below 32 F.? (Note the Damoil label simply says do
not apply when the temperature is below 32 F.)

2.) As buds break, and green tissues shows, tissue damage is more likely if
oil is applied during the day and night time temperature drops below

3.) Pears and apples different when it comes to oil application(s)?

4.) 2 to 3% oil is magical because that is in all the recommendations and
it's been that way forever? (But the damoil label says "For concentrate
spray, use no more than 4 gallons of this product per acre in minimum 20
gallons of spray." Huh, isn't that like 20%?)
