1. Statistics show that the export of fresh fruit from Brasil has been

and continues to be an important item in foreign trade. In 1924 the

export of oranges to Argentine was suddenly interrupted by a decree which pro-

hibited the delivery of oranges to Argentina from all countries in which

a serious pest, the Mediterranean Fruit Fly occurred. The United States

of America aiL p_ ohibited the importation of oranges frothose countries

in which thxaxp this pest i ndmwd, Ao -^ 7,

New York is a very desirable market since tie Brasiliaen oranges

ripen at the opposite time of the year to those of North America.

Experiments made in the Hawaiian Islands by North American entomologists

indicated hat temperature of 2 degrees C. for less for a 22 day period was

conditions, it was judged advisable for a commission to go to Washington and

present the facts to the Federal Horticultural Board, with a view of having

the regulations so modified as to permit the importation of Brasilian oranges.

Refrigeration as a Measura Against Med. F. Fly.

The detailed and scientific work carried out by competent entomologists

in ith Hawaii, lead to the belief that this means would be of great practical


u' Experiments in Spain. Spain, among other Mediterranean countries,

was greatly interested in securing a nrthod for destroying the Med. F. Fly in,

fresh fruits exported to the United States. Une of tie municipalities of Spai ..

employed scientists to repeat the investigations made in Hawaii. The results wert

entirely satisfactory. This work was very important to Spain, as more than a

million dollars worth of grapes were exported to the United States aaa y.
ACommercial shipments of grapes were then undertaken on a large scale, under
Commercial shipments of grapes were then undertaken on a large scale,p under

nditions similar to tho the experiments.
e-n ihese arrived in New 4brkrthey were found to be badly infested with

live Med. F. M'Jies and hence were refused admittance.

Tne orange growers of Spain believed that* had gained sufficient

control over the Med. Fruit Fly to make it safe for the United States to

receive their fruit, and invited the Federal horticulturall Bard to make an

inspection of their fruit and orchards. The results were so unfavorable that no

attempt was made to export oranges to the New York market.

Experiments in South Africa. The Union of South Africa has been growing

more oranges and grapefruit than was needed for home consumption. Consequently

various foreign markets were considered, among them that of the United States.

It was found, however that there was a prohibition against receiving these fruit

from countries infested with the Med. F. Fly. Hence the investigations con-

ducted in Hawaii were repeated there on a more extensive scale, with negative

results. The experiments conducted in South Africa indicate that refrigeration

cannot be relied upon for killing the Med. F. Fly.

Grapes from Argentine. During our work in Washington, a Munson Line

Steamer arrived with three shipments of grapes from Argentine. Two of these

shipments were infested with a fruit fly whose larvae could not Be distinguished

from those of the Med. Fruit Fly. These fruits were not permitted to enter

othe markets of New York. Whwn we left Washington, some of the larvae had

reached the pupa stage but none had yet emerged as adult insects.

Experima nts in Hawaii. Competent entokologists of the U. S. D. A. working

Sin Hawaii conducted experiments xaxlk as to the effect of refrigeration on the

various stages of the Med. F. Fly. The results of these experiments indicated-,

Sthat no stage could resist a temperature of 2 degrees C. for a period of 21 days.

It appears thal no further work has been done on this subject by the U. S. D Af'

to confirm or refute the uxtia original expe riments. The experiments conducted

in South Africa seem to indicate that these might have been conducted

under conditions under which their conclusions would not be entirely true- ..

At the present time all fruitsand vegetables attacked by the Ied. Fruit Fly are

excluded fromthe markets of the United States when they originate in a

country where the pest is known to exist. Those fruits and vegetables, from,

whatever country, that are known to be immune to the attacks of the Med. Fruit

Fly, are admitted even though this pest is present in that country.

HOW to Secure the New York Market for Brasilian Oranges

1. Undertake thorough going and technical experiments on the effects of

refrigeration on the Med.. Fruit Fly in all of its stages and under commercial

2. Take drastic measures to eliminate the Med. Fruit Fly from the regions that

are growing citrus fruit for export. This can most readily be accomplished

b destroying all host vegetables and fruits, excepting oranges, usually

attacked by the pest. Oranges in the later stage of ripening are more

frequently attacked than in the earlier stages, so all of the fruits in the

overripe stage and those that have fallen on the ground should be burned

or buried deeply.

3. Take active steps towd producing superior fruit.. This will necessitate

the introduction of ration& measures of pruning and cultivation. It will

also be necessary to use spraying machines for controlling melanose
methods for washingpau& polishing and grading the fruit before it is packed

for the market*^k-A at '-

S4. Th i foreign and native parasites and predacious enemiAs of

the Med.. Fruit Flywill be found to be a valuable and important adjunct in

destroying this annoying pest.

5. Establish a strict and impartial government control over every kilo of

fresh fruit exported. A single shipment of badly conditioned or pest infested

fruit can destroy a fine market that it has taken years to establish.

The United States of NkAmer has at present no authorized agency for

performing this work and is constantly in danger of loosing valuable foreign

markets by incautious and dishonest exporters.

The federall Horticultural Board assured us that it stands ready to

raae--mTo---niii admitting the Brasilian ora -ges into the United States

whenever it is certain that such shipments will not introduce the Med. Fruit

Fly or other dangerous pest*

Whenever any extensie region has been o thvurughlay cleansed of the Med.

ruit Fly and other dmgerous pests, that e Ministerio da Agricultura
we suggest that the, follow
sin rely believes it to be tirely free,/thb example of Spain, and Argentine,
ort t

and ite an inspection of the ruit and o ards of that region by a urzkkug

repre native of the Fed. Hort.|Brd. The Fderal Horticultural Board

has assu d us that they will do tir part if will do ours.

Pests Intercepted by Inspectors of the FevSe`Hort AB 4
To present the introduction into the United States of insects and diseases

dangerous to plm ts and plant products, the Federd& horticultural Board maintains

a large corps of inspectors. In the port ci New York alone there are fourteen

of these inspectors. The vigilance of these officers tan be better il trated,-

by examination of their records. We found filed in their archives six hundred and

sixteen entries against material brought from Brasil in the years 1914 to 1926.

1. It should be cLearly understood that the only reason for excluding

Brasiln oranges from the markets of the United States, is thae fact that

such importations are lile ly to introduce idi,dangerous pests #-.fruits

and vegetables. When we can s1we-4o the Federal Horticultural Board tht r o n-

can be transported with a certainty that no Med. Fruit Fly are included ,

the importation of Brasilian oranges will be permitted by the adb ption of

a regulation by the Board. TMhis a scitific problem and can be solved only
by scientific r ans.

2. Your commission was given every opportunity to examine-the original

archives and work done by the officers of the F Y rtPBr4. Every possible

facility was placed at our disposal to mm& full and complete investigations

of all of the work related to our problem. The Hon. Secooof AgriculGura

stated definitely th no modifications would be made of the regulations of

the Federal Horticultural Board without the recommendation of that body.

3. Our only hope for establishing a large and ,lVrative export trade in

fresh fruits and vegetables lies in a ___-___-___ ___ ..._

ia*dr that we may deliver products eae*l to, or superior to those of any

other country, not only in our own estimation but in the esteem of our

competitors. Ihmuuxuaiabnuxpzzaxztsxmzz*x The Brasilian Govermnelt

must be able to say with entire confidence that these vegetable products

are o.4-4 eo f dangerous irs-ects or diseases.

4. Finally. We wish to express to you/ our hearty appreciation of the kindness

(and consideration we have received from the Ministdrio,

A our appreciation of the frankness and kindly consideration with

which wve were received by Secretary Jardine and all of his subordinates with

whom we had dealings.

Also to the Memb-rsof the Federal Horticulturi. Board a group of

noted scientists, whose many years of experience ensebhles them to be

just and fair, guided only by known scientific data.

A special meeting of the Board was held Ma*y 20, 19Z6, ay 10 aa. In
the Oftice of the Chairman.

P"-' .--: Doctor iL-rlatt, Ghairman, and I.essrs. Waite i ud 3raf; 2so
Mr. S'ssoer.

The object of -tLhis Mueting was to give a hearing to lbasrs. P. U, Holis
and ?. C. Caaargo, a special ooaimission appointed by the tanister of Agricul-
ture of Brasil to discuss *aih the Board, and, if possible, secure a modifica-
tion of thw ruling excludiag oranges from 3rasil (see Minutes for May 11,
1926). This ooamrissiou had already seen wid diacusued ti, iautetz- 'xitCh the
various anwbers of the Board individuailj. Doctor Rolfs submitted a prepared
states rt describing the qualifications and experience of the imnbera of the
commission, &and t1ie importance of the Brasilian fruit trade. HeU referred to
a trial shipment of ornages -o the .ew York arket ir Decesaoer iJ2, which Wa
reported to be freG from posts; but started tl.ht our embargo made further ship-
ments impossible. 4e referred to ,..r hoz2itte's survey in Argcntiaa in 1935
and s&atcd that o0 iJi *Gz,.ette's recoiaendation to the Argentine authorities,
Argentina established &c quarantine against .irasilian fruits. The Chair-
ian pointed out thut ilr. ioz'nette had boe. sent to Argsntina at the earnest
inviitticn of the Argentine Covernment to maio a -;urvey of fr uit fly con-
ditiouns, and th" ho had not Leenr authorized tc rtnke any ;uerartine recoM-
mendvtione, but that if he was asked by the Argentine authorities what they
should du to .Li rd a nit tlhe ent ry of fruit flie;. it v"Culd hvve been only
natural for !r. !;eznotUe to say that the thing for themto do was to take
quarantine xaasures Kgaiist fruit from oaun: ri's known t.i be infested with
fruit flies.

Doctor Rolls referred to the considerable progress in plant protect-
ion in Brasil dua ng tha, past four years,. -'uvo inspection is maintained in
localities wheri oranges are gZvown for export; regional plant quarantines ame
enforced against cer-tain parts of Brazil vhore Infe-3station is knmoin to occur;
and port .inspotiei is also maintained, i-i refezrTed to a number of shipmenwts
of applos froa the Unitod Stutes which were conderfned on arrival on acm unt
of infestation with -he Sen Jose seale and codling moth. In reply to a
query from the Chairman as to the competency of their inspectors, Doctor
Camazrgo atatid that they were all college maen, soS of tham having European
training add others training in the United "tess in addition to graduate
v:ork in Brazil. Doctor Caraxgo stated that ths field inspection extended
also to iisspection in tihe back yards of housaw. Tr ?raf suggested that
the use of kerosene traps might be Ihelpful in determining the prsence of
fruit flies. Doctor Rolls said that practiclly all the States of Brazil
could gpw citrus but that the oomuorGial onterprise limits itself tolsmaUl
areas-four localities at the present time. These, ho said, he had already
discussed individually with the Board T-ibero. 3 e said that the oranges
grovn just north of the city of Rio are the Tavols ard the Felecta, the
latter also of the Navel type; that the am-tnges grown immediately south
of Rio (Sao Gonjalo) are of the Valencia type wad were the oranges vhioh

foarmrly were export-d to ArgentiB. and that the considerable orange diA-
trict at Li :ir, in the he.ri of the coffe-e country wVvs nearly witegtber
of the Navel type but that this was a nw anterprim and ts. trees wwr
till S~ill.

The Coijmissior had been hopeful that, by means of refrigeration, all
fruit-fly danger from shipments of Brnzilian orw.ue might be removed.
There was ccnrside ruble discussion of the effect of refrigeration n ineeots,
hnd h Chairman referred to the failure of this sethod ia the rase of the
&ion of Suth Africa and in a recent shipment of gtss from the Arg~ntinb.
The Commission stated that they would andertako refriberatioa dxperirnt
la Brrizil with peaches and also with oranges. The Claix-man pointed ut
the necessity of cthcking up all laboratory experiments with experiL,.its
on a commercial scale, and referrred to the difficulty of maintaining a unafrm
tdmpersture throughout a mass of wateriau. Doctor Rolfa referred to the am-
perience he had had in Florida ia shipping fruits and vegetables in rofrig-
orator cars, and sltitd that preooling andproper loading t all. : free
ventilation were absolutely essential. Doctor Camargo stated that he had
wyer found fruit-fly attack in the ::avei type of oreas and thtt 1118
Valencia type of orange was praotiealUy free from the fruit fly and thbat
after many inzwetilonea made in the groves and also of fruit which had drop'"
pd to the ground he had iound only one infestateio. The Chairman was in-
clirad to doubt the general freedom from fruit fly of this orange in Di asi .
except perhaps as to the early crp, and referred to the severe irnfeaittion
of oerripe Val)ncias which he Wad seen in Zp-in last year.. Dutor Iolfa
said that it wvuld be profitable to export the V-,lincia.s to the Rdpublics
to the south t B3rasil oaly during the early season. DeLetor CLwEi'go said
that they used to ship about 200,000 cases to Arg.entina from October 15 to
Deoembar 15 and that after December the ormanges become overripe.

The Chairmaan sugge-ied that the comisasion carry back to Brtasil the
messa6e that we are not putting any qlanantim on Braziliuw fruit or on
fruit from any other foreign country for trade. protection, but only on c ount A
f pests whiab we have a right to fear, and that if they ean shin that .
that risk is elimiiatod by wy snasf it will open present retrietions f, r'*-
conaideruvioa. He suggested M invest i tion from thU s-anapoint of actual
infesta"ioan of fruit au d from the sZi.Ld, oint of control by rdrrigEr. tion,
and expressed a belief that we could cooperate by making a field review in
Brazil at tte proper time. It was thoup'ht tiat the bast time for such ino
vestigation wouid be fm m :.a y to Augut. Doctor Cumargo said that shipments
to thhe Inited Stntes would be made from May 15 to Auguat 15. Ue ci-d that
at the present time it would beiipos&.ible to dhip from aiy other place then

FRU IT-FLY Al-D COLD u T 1': \G3

The following ass',;es "are ,taken from a recent report made to the
Secretary r Lgriculture by the Chief of the Division of Ento-
oo logy: -
"In several seasons Lvtwelve and more ye,.;rs ago experimental
exj:o,3ures of fruit-ely infected peaches to cold storhze at Cape-
town -:'ere made to ,et assurance, other tian the commercial ex-
2perience in shipiping, tlait taLteo was little or no dal,;;cr of the
in:,-ect reaching -.n;laid alive. T"- results were reassuring, near
ly all of the larvae being found dead in Lvo weeks, at.-u all at
exumi ,ation at the end of ti'e t',irdj week. Yeurs later, in 1916,
ABac and Pemberton, of the 7%. 63. A. Bureau of :ntonboloiy, publish
ed reports on sinuila:, but mnore estensi-vt ,.ud- 2Lo.,:3 cafully con-
dtcted, "exyerients in H-wvaii. They arrived ;.t the conclusion-
as the outcome of "iany tests involvi -ig thou. ands of eggs, larvae,
and .u,,ae--tL-'.t no stage of the iwiect cculd survive refrigera-
tion for 'three weeks at 33 9 to 40 9 F., or for two ;recks at 322
to 339 .1

"However, we have the indisputable fact that Fryer, in Eng-
l'i.nd, found five living larvae in C"2,e eahs this year and
reared tv adult fruit flies (C.cratitis ccpiLtat) from tUeiaem. The
correspondence implies that the minui-iun teai eratu-e o the parti-
cular ship's char-ber in which the* fruit was conveyed '.as 37 de-
grees, a';d that the Ti.ii-aura tem.-er-'ture varied widely. The sur-
vival of these 1ac'ticulr larvae rnt.ht therefore be put down to
insufficient ref'igera-tion. But soae week:-; earlier, living lar-
vae had been found in 3alwary peaches, .aao d 3as for export, after
they had been in cold storg-e, at Caoetown for tro, three, and fou:
weeks. Senior 'ntoaol:iist Thilly ;-lade t'he l.tr -.xaiinations,
m:id reported on lith april that.at the final one he L.d found
thirty-two living zi.,.:ots out of a total of sevarity-one in eight-,
eon infected fruits. in all of t;;o or the fruitV- the ..,qgots
were @l. dead or all aLive, and ".'oLly than iot the idea that
bfrvival night be associated with extra high protection afforded
to particular fruits by picking n.:.terial. The fruits were very
heavily bedd-led in -'.,odrool, ,3 ounces ot -ihich ve.re taken from a
single tray. The trays each held twenty-four fruits and measur-
ed aboMt 18 x 12 x 4 inches.outside. '1l te fruits were equally
protected by pjiaper-~\ra.pin,, ut tie "ood;vool .i.i be supposed to
h._-ve fiven more protection t some thUan to otiierz, .d soime
fruits may be suppo-,ed ti ih. ve chilled aloiver than theirr fruits
by virtue of tiieir positions.

"EFfforts to get newly plucked fruit for further experiments
were in vain, but Aally continued observations on seventeen
further trays of tne same lot of peaches. `bogt 7 1/2 per cent-
of the fruits were found infe.ited as the exafiinatione proceeded.
An examination after five week disclosed seventeen living and
fourteen dead larvae fVom twelve iafe.,ted fruits, and nun examina-
tion after six week discloadd thirty-three living and sixteen


dead from sixteen fruits. Moreover, seven pupae were found at
each of these two examainajions, and there viere indications that
.m larvae had emerged from four fruits add escaped. The
larvae found in any one fruit in these examinations were either
all dead or all alive.

"The total number of larvae'taken from the fruits that had
been refrigerated four weeks or longer was eighty-tvo. Frou then
vere reared twenty-eight male and twenty-nine femaleflies. Only,
one fly was reared fvam the fourteen pupuria found in the fifth
and sixth wveek6. The last emergence was on 10th June, and it
may safely be accepted that the remaining insedts that is,
twentyfive taken out of cold storage as larvae and thirteen
taken out as puparia aire all ded.

The teuIperaturn records of the cha b.:r for tLie enttie i
six weeks were studid by ?-..liy. A reading is noted every two
hours vith apparently inconsequential exceptions. T'he range is
from to 44 d 'eT.. he mean of the reading is 33.972 de-
_rees, over half of the readings are 33 degrees, and on only
three days is 33 degrees not recorded. On thooe three days the
range is 34 degrees to 39 ueg teea.

"Hence, notwithstanding the apparently reliable finding gs
of Back and Pemberton, 1lally is accepted :*s having demonstrated
that 0. cai)iita larvae may survive W4;W/%IWI/4X in cold
storage at auout 34 duerues for considerably longer than three
weeks. The survival for six weeks, was in even larger propor-
tion than the survival for four week.

"Mally has advanced the plausible hypothesis that the[ lar-
vae that die in refrigeration such as that now concerned, are
killed rather by abrupt transition from a high to a low tem-
,perature than by being kept at a low te poratureQ If his rea-
soning is correct, the complete kill in the earlier experiments
at Capetown and iLwaii m by be e:..lainable on the ground that al
the maggots experienced a suddia chilling. It is recalled that
in the major experimewttu made at CLLpetUun years ago tht infest-
ed fruits were exposed in ti-igle-layer boxes without paper
wrapping and with little %oodwool. In the recent experiments,
as already stated, the fruits were in papers and bedded in a
bulky packing of woodwool. It follows here is still a hope
that refrigeration may be made thvroughlyj effective, and also t
that it is effective ordinarily.
"This demonstration that fruit-fly larvae may live in cbid
storage at about 34 degrees for six weeks, and then successful-
ly trans orm to flies, greatly emphasizes the need for the
packer' of export fruit, most particularly of peaches and nec-
tarines, t. select fruit for export with extreme care tc avoid
the inclusion of any that have become infested by the pest.
The packing of a variety from an orchard should cease at once
if maggots are found to have appeared in it. Growers whose


experience has taught tkem to expect the insect are urged to
use poison bait to the very best of their ability to kill the
parent flies before eggs a&e#laid. It seems not to be gener-
ally Inown how extraordinarily successful in preventing at-
tack baiting has proven with lading peach exporters fil the
western Cape province. The GovelnILent inspection at the ports
hereafter may be expected to be 'iore severe than ever before;
but the growers will largely hv4eponly themselves to blame if
their consigniicionzL are rejected\ fAr export owing to fruit-
f ly.

The following passages are taken from a recent report made to the Seo-
retary for Agriculture by the Chief of the Division of Entomology:--

"In several seasons twelve and more years ago experimental ex-
posures of fruit-fly infested peaches to cold storage at Capetown were
made to get assurance, other than the commercial experience in shipping,
that there was little or no danger of the insect reaching England alive.
The results were reassuring, nearly all the larvas being found dead in
two weeks, and all at examinations at the end of the third week. Years
later, in 1916, Back and Pemberton, of the U.S.A. Bureau of Entomology,
published reports on similar, but more extensive and more carefully con-
ducted, experiments in Hawaii. They arrived at the conclusion--as the
outcome of many tests involving thousands of eggs, larvae, and pupaeo.
that no stage of the insect cou3d survive refrigeration for three weeks
at 330 to 40 F., or for two weeks at 32 to 330 F,

"However, we have the indisputable fact that Fryer, in England,
found five living larvae in Cape peaches this year and reared two adult
S fruit flies (Ceratitis capitate) from them. The correspondence implies
that the minimum temperature of the particular ship's chamber in which
the fruit was conveyed was 37 degrees, and that the maximn temperature
varied widely. The survival of these particular larvae might therefore
be put down to insufficient refrigeration. But some weeks earlier, liv-
ing larvae had been found in Salway peaches, packed as for export, after
they had been held in cold storage at Capetown for two, three, and four
weks. Senior Entomologist Mally made the later examinations, and re-..
ported on 15th April that at the final one he had found thirty-two living
maggots out of a total of seventy-one in eighteen infested fruits. In
all but two of the fruits the maggots were all dead or all alive, and
Mally then got the idea that survival might be associated with extra high
protection afforded to particular fruits by packing material. The fruits
were very heavily bedded in woodwool, S ounces of which were taken from
a single tray. The trays each held twenty-four fruits and measured about
18 x 12 x 4 inches outside. All the fruits were equally protected by
paper-wrapping, but the woodwool may be supposed to have given more pro-
tection to some than to others, and some fruits may be supposed to have
chilled slower than other fruits by virtue of their position.

"Efforts to get newly plucked fruit for further experiments were
in vain, but Nally continued observations on seventeen further trays
of the same lot of peaches. About 7* per cent. of the fruits were found
infested as the examinations proceeded. An examination after five weeks
disclosed seventeen living and ftarteen dead larvae from twelve infested
fruits, and an examination after six weeks disclosed thirty-three living
and sixteen dead from sixteen fruits. Moreover, seven pupae were found
at each Of these two examinations, and there were indications that larvaO
had emerged from four fruits and escaped. The larvae found in any one

Fruit-Fly and Cold Storage

fruit in these examinations were either all dead or all alive.

"The total number of larvae taken from the fruits that had been re-
frigerated four weeks or longer was eighty-two, From theman were reared
twenty-eight male and twenty-nine female flies. Only one fly was reared
from the fourteen puparia found in the fifth and sixth weeks. The last
emergence was on 10th June, and it may safely be accepted that the re-
maining insects that is, twenty-five taken out of cold storage as
larvae and thirteen taken out as puparia are all dead.

"The temperature records of the chamber for the entire six weeks
were studied by Mally. A reading is noted every two hor s with appal-
ently inconsequential exceptions. The range is from 25 to 144 degrees.
The mean of the readings is 33.972 degrees, over half of the readings
are 33 degrees, and on only three days is 33 degrees not recorded. On
those three days the range is 34 degrees to 39 degrees.

"Hence, notwithstanding the apparently reliable findings of Back
and Pemberton, Mally is accepted as having demonstrated that C. capitata
larvae mea survive in cold cold storage at about 34 degrees for con-
siderabqy longer than three weeks. The survival for six weeks, was in
even larger proportion than the survival for four weeks.

"Mally has advanced the plausible hypothesis that the larvae
that die in refrigeration such as that now concerned, are killed rather
by abrupt transition from a high to a low temperature than by being kept
at a low temperature. If his reasoning is correct, the complete kill in
the earlier experiments at Capetcu and Hawaii may be explainable on the
ground that all the maggots experienced a sudden chilling. It is recallal
that in the major experiments made at Capetown years ago the infested
fruits were exposed in single-layer boxes without paper wrapping and with
little woodwool. In the recent experiments, as already stated, the
fruits were in papers and bedded in a bulky packing of voodwool. It fol-
lows there is still a hope that refrigeration may be made thoroughly ef6
fective, and also that it is effective ordinarily."

This demonstration that fruit-fly larvae may live in cold storage
at about 34 degrees for six weeks, aid then successfully transform to
flies, greatly emphasizes the need for the packers of export fruit, most
particularly of peaches and nectarines, to select fruit for export with
extreme care to avoid the inclusion of any that have become infested by
the pest. The packing of a variety from an orchard should cease at once
if maggots are found to have appeared in it. Growers whose experience
has taught them to expect the insect are urged to use poison bait to the
very best of their ability to kill the parent flies before eggs are laid.
It seems not to be generally known how extraordinarily successful in pre.
venting attack baiting has proved with leading peach exporters of the
western Cape Province. Te Government inspection at the ports hemafter
may be expected to be more severe than ever befQre; but growers will
largely have only themselves to blame if their consignments are rejecqA
fir export owing to fruit-fly.

.February 6, 1926

The Honorable -

The Secretary of State.

Dear Mr. Secretary:

Supplementing my letter to you of December, 17, in
reply to your communications of November 3, 1925 (LA 832.612/
14) and December 2, 1925 (LA 8X2.612/19), permit me to make
a brief statement of the nature od the inspection work done
by this.Department on export shipments of fruit to South
American points and the circumstances under which this service
was inaugurated.

There is no legal warrant for sanitary inspection and
certification by this Department of export shipments of
fruit and -egetables. There is authority for inspection
ot shipments for the purpose of determining come rcial
grade. For several years, under authorization carried as
S an appropriation item, the Bureau of Agricultural Economics
of this Departmet has been rendering extensively a service
based upon the determination of grade, quality and condition
of fruit and vegetables. Certificates issued by the
inspector after examination are, by statutory warrant,
accepted by the cir ts as prima facie evidence of the true
condition of the product. The organization which has been
built to mee-the increasing 'Xi demands for this inspectional
service has freuqnntly been called upon by the trade to make
statements of a supplementary kind which would permit
the consignmants to enter territories where sanitary re-
strietions were imposed. As you are aware, quarantines
within this country are placed by certain States against
others where the protection of the agricultural interest
of the individual localities requires and as you are also aware
several of the Latin American countries impose, as a con-
dition to'entry, inspection by competent agricultural
authorities and the issuance of certificates meeting the
terms of the quarantines of those countries.

The Fruit and Vegetable Inspection.Service was not
intended primarily to make sanitary inspections. It hap-
pens, however, that a percentage of the personal is
qualified, within limits, to make inspections and issue
certificates concerning the absence tf plant pests and
diseases. In its desire to be of service to the American
producers and shippers, including exporters, this organiza-
tion fir some time has included under the caption of
"Remarks" in the commercial inspection certificates issue.

1W -.M

by it the statements exacted by the country to which the
product was destined, provided, pf course, the conidtion
of the consignment permitted such statements to be made.
'Lealizing that sanitary inspections ,f/% should be under the
control of that Branch of the Department dealing exclu-
sively with questions of this sort and which was itself
imposing and modifying quarantines with respect to domestic
and import shipments of similar kind, namely, the Federal
horticultural Board, the Departmeyt, recently directed the
Bureau of Agricultural Economics to restrict their inspec-
tional work to the terms oftheir legal authorization and to
issue certificates concerning grade, quality and con-di-
tion only. The Federal Horticultural Board not only is
without legal authority to do so but does not have the
funds which will enable it to take over sanitary inspec-
tion. Appropriate legislation has been introduced in this
Congress to give the Department bot-" the authority and
the fu nds needed. Meanwhile we have attempted through the
cooperation, in some instaaced, pf State officials, in
other instances by the continued use of the inspectors
of the Bureau of Agricultural Economics at certain stations and in still
others the portindpection officials
of the Federal Horticultural Board to meet, as far as it
is practicable to do so, the demands of the exporters.
It is confidently expected that adequate facilities will
be available within a very shortX time to meet all demands
by shippers for sanitary inspection.

This Department has not encouraged inspection as an
effective means of preventing the introduction of plant
pests and diseases. In the administration of the Plant
Quarantine Act and in our effort to put into effect the
spirit of that statue by preventing the introduction of
pests and diseases, we have declined to recongise inppee-
tion either at the source of productLon or at the port of
entry as adequate for this pu' pose. In the event that an
objective examination were of itself sufficient to make
possible a final determination Aith respect to freedom
from disease and pests, the value of such an examination in
the absence of an inspection of the shipment in its
entirely, would depend upon the representative character
of the sample. The examination at Now York, both by
representatives of the Federal Horticultural Board and the
Bureau SS Agricultural Economics, in so far as the export
consignment made by E. Waterman and Company to Brasil is
concerned, was restricted to a careful scrutiny of a
limited number of samples. Such samples were entirely
free from San Jose scale and as far as it was possible
to determine from any other pests and diseases which
might be injurious to agriculture. Accordinglu certifi-
cation to that effect was made. This Department has no
disposition whatever to dispute the correctness of the
conclusion reached by the Brasilian officials upon their
examination of this shipment of apples when offered for
entry. The Department will take every practicable pre-
caution to eliminate the chance of issuing a certificate


upon samples not properly representative of the consign-
ment. It must be appreciated, however, that always upon
an examination of a portion ofthe shipment only there
will remain the probability that such portion examined
may not treveal or represent the true condition of the
entire lot.

Sincerely yours,


Acting Secretary.




Marcg 3, 1926


The Honorable

Edwin V. Morgan,

American Ambassador,

Rio de Janeiro


Unpo receipt of your telegram No. 4 of January 20,
1 P.M., regarding the desire of the Brasilian Minister
of Agriculture to obtain, if possible, the rescinding of
the order against the importation into the United States
of Brasilian citrus fruits, a letter dated January 22,
1926, was addressed to the Secretary of Agricultura, of
which the pertinent portion follows:

In a telegraphic despatch, dated Janu-
ary 20, 1 p.m., from the Embassy at Rio de
Janeiro the Ambassador says that the Brasilian
Minister of Agriculture has requested him to
take up through this Department with yours the
question of rescinding the order against the
importation into the United States of Brasilian
citrous fruits. The Ambassador also says that the
Brasilian, official suggests that these
fruits be allowed to enter the United States through
only two ports, namely, New York and
Boston, and that they be accompanied by certi-
ficates to be issued by the Brasilian Depart-
ment of Agriculture, which, the official dei
clarMd, would exercise especial care in the issuance of such cer
certificates to make sure that
the fruit shall be free from all fruit pests,
such as the '-editerranean fly et cetera.

The Ambassador explains that the Brasilian
Minister is especially anxious to arrange this
matter because it is believed that if the United
States continues to exclude these fruits Argen-
tina where they now have a large sale will also
exclude them.

The Ambassador states in conclusion that
our own fruit business with Brasil is continually
increasing and that he is arranging for the con-


tinuance of the ftee entry into Brasil of such
fruits in accord with the agreement between the
United States and Brasil concluded a few
months ago, providing for reciprocal most
favored nation treatment by each country of
the products of the other. The Ambassador
refers to the fact, with which you are of
course familiar,that our fruit is entitled
to free entry into Brasil because Aggentine
fruits enter Brasil free of duty; but he says
it is necessary for him to rehew the arrange-
ment annually since the Minister of Fira-nce must
reissue each year an ordIer to that effect.

I should be glad to have at your earliest
convince for communication to the Arbassador
an expression of youropinion whether the change
in existing regulations which the Brasilian of-
ficial desires can be effected".

On February 9, 1926, the Acting Secretary of Agricul-
ture addresses a reply to this Department, from which the
followtinf pertinentportion is quoted;

"As pointed out in a letter of Decem-
ber 5, addressed to you by Mr. W. G. Camp-
bell, Director of Regulatory -Work of this Depart-
ment, because of the existence in
Brasil of several species of fruit flies,
including the Mediterranean fruit fly, which
are known to be pests of fruits in that
country, none of which, fortunately, at this
time occur in the United States, it is con-
sidered undesirable to make any modification of
rhe existing quarantine to provide for the
entry of Brasilian citrus fruit. An examination
of the letter referred to above will indicate
that here are no less that five species
of fruit flies recorded as infesting citrus
fruits in Brasil*.

Experience has shown that it is impos-
sible to certify with any degree of accuracy as
to the freedom of fruit from fruit fly maggots,
especially in the earlier stages, and in view of
this situation, no provision is made in the fruit
and vegetable quarantine of this Department for
the acceptance of fruitsand vegetables under
certificate from any country, regardless of
whether or not fruit flies are known to occur
therein. In other words, the policy of this De-
partment is to exclude fruits and vegetables
known-to bt hosts of fruit flies in the country
of origin, since it is evident that an* inspec-
tion is totally inadequate and does not offer
the necessary safeguards. I am sure you appre-
ciate the. wisdom of such a policy since the

introduction and establishment in this
country of any of the fruit flies referred to
in .:r. Campbell's letter of December 5 would
doubtless result in a serious loss to the
fruit and vegetable industries of this country.

Referring to the portion of Assistant
Harrison's letter relative to the
kju g-of the Brasilian minister that if we
continue to exclude Brazilian citrus fruit,
similar action will be taken by Argentina,
an examination of our file of foreign laws
indicates that such action has already been
taken by the Argentine Govemiment, in the
form of a decree issued April 16, 1925, re-
stricting the entry of frash fruits from
Brasil and certain other countries. The
apparent absence of the .iediterranean fruit
fly in Argentina would justify reasonable
action on their part to prevent the entry of
any fruit or vegetables which mab be the
meanof introducing this serious fruit pest.
Moreover, it is understood that the entry 4nd
establishment of the 'editerranean fruit fly
in Argentine Tould naturally necessitate a
modification of the Department's present
policy whih provides for *the entry of Argen-
tine fruit at northern ports."


The letter of December 5, mentioned in the first
sentence of the foregoing, replied to a communication
from this Department dated November 14,1925, with
which had been forwarded a copy of a note dated October
21,J1925, and a copy of a memorandum which accom-
panied it -i the Ambassador of Trasil in Washington ,
making known his Government's desire that the exclusion
of Brasilian fruits from the United States be discon-
tinued. The pertinent partion of the letter of
December 5, from the Department of Agricultture, is as

Following is a partial list of the
fruit flies, which, according to pub-
liesh/ records, are established in Brasil,
infesting a variety of hosts:

Anastrepha bistrigata, infesting
two species of guava;
West Indian fruit fly ( A. fraterculi
infesting persirn, guava,
loquat, coffee, plum, Passiflo:
pear, peach, citrus, azid a numi
of other fri+ --
Serpentine fruit fly (A. serpentna)
infesting star apple, sapote,
mamey, mimisop, white sapote,
and sapodilla;
Mediterranean fruit fly (Ceratitis
capitata) infesting peach,"

Le^ 06) ~ ><-7 h^/^^~r
____))erll^~^ ^ ^ <--^^t/

citrus, loquat, plua, fig, and
Dacus bicolo. infesting oranges anE
Fapanses persimmons;
D. byreviZ, infesting o-rig,-c and
Japanese persimmons.

Fortunately, none of the fruit flies listed
above are knorm to be established in the Uni -
ted States. As an instance of the injury which
they may occasion, it may be stated that on
account of the I /% / presence of the Mediterranean
fruit fly in Bermuda, the excellent peach in-
dustry formerly enjoyed by that country has
long S*e been ruined. The same condition with
respect to peaches exists in Hawaii, where this
insect is known to attack some seventy-two kinds
of fruits. Efforts directed toward the eradication
of this pest in foreign countries have been
unsUcessful. Likewise, the "exican and West
Indian fm it flies have caused considerable
injury to fruits attacked in foreign countries.
In view of the. record to these insects in cer-
tain foreign countries, it is believed that
their establsihmmnt in the fruit cultures 4-
California and ths southern states would result
in serious losses to t1B fruit snd vegetable
growers of the regions concerned. Affecting as
they do fruits and vegetables which represent
an important item in tb food supply d6 this
country, tb Department does not feel that it
shoulA permit the entry of these fruits from
Brazil with the attendant risk of introducing
these pests. Hence, it is considered undesir-
able to make any modification of the existing
quarantine, to provide for the entry of Brasilian

This information was communicated in a note dated
December 17, 1925 to the Ambaddador of Brasil.

When your telegram N2 9 of January 29, 5 P.1., re-
garding the xame matter, reached the Department, another
letter was on February 5, 1926, addressed to the Secre-
tary of Agricultura, from which the following pertinent
portion is taken:

"An additional telegraphic despatch,
dated January 29, 5 p. m. has been re-
ceived from the Ambassador in which he
refers to the fact that recent customs
favors to fresh fruits fmom the United
States{Xv have hitherto been granted under the
most favored nation arrangement because
Argentine fruits enjoyed such favors; and
he says that he has been informed by the
Minister of Agriculture of Brazil that
although, as announced in his telegraphic
despatch of January 23, 11 a.m., a copy

of which was communicated to your Department
in the customary routine manner of Janu-
ary 30, a circular to customs houae inspec-
tors had been issued instructing then to
grant free entry to the fruits from the United
States the same favor has not yet been ex-
tended for the present year to Argentine fruits.

Should your Department be unable, the
Ambassador observes, to enter into the
*agreement desired by the Brasilian Agricul-
tural Department regarding the admission of
Brasilian citrus fruits into the United
States this country might lose the privilege
at present enjoyed, which he says has been
granted this year as a special favor. Should,
^ moreover, he continues, your Department in-
sist on continuing the exclusion of Brasilian
fruits the Argentine Government might follow
the example .f the United States, which, he
says, would derange the interchange of fruits
between the three interested countries. In
conclusion the Ambassador dedAares that he
considers it important that your Department
and the Brasilian Agricultural Department
come to emn agreement in thisjnatter befvte
the Argentine authorities take action."

The reply dated February 18, 1926, of the Acting
Secretary of Agriculture to the'last preceding communi-
cation from this Department, which has just been re-
ceived, is as follows:

"Assistant Secretary Leland Harri-
son's letter of February 5, (LA 632.113/11l
referring to a second telegraphis despatch^
dated January 29, from the Embassy at Rio
de Janeiro relative to tte desire of the
Brazilian Minister of Agriculture that
Brazilian citrus fruit be allowed entry into
this country, has been received.

The position of this Department with respect
,to the recission of its fruit and
.. vegetable quarantine, as it applies to
Brasilian citrus fruit, is fully explained in
.'' my letter to you of February 9. Of
course that communication had not reached
you when MIr. Harrison's letter was'written.
I am inclined to believe that it covers the
points mentioned, so it seems unnecessary to
make further comment at this time".

I am, Sir,

under the direct simxat psirvison of an ezr detailed

by the GoveniMeitL ofBrasil forethis special purpose, who will

certify asto the degree of refrigeration, and the time during

which the fruit has been held in storage.

less than 36 degrees F. in the compartmenthrouout the entire s

passage from Pio de Janeiro o Santos to Hew York.

7). That when such shipments of fruit are received in New York,
accompanied b, the foregoing certificates, they shall be
accepted and the certificates regarded as prima facH
evidence that the fruit is free from Ifixaiixzx living
fruit flies, in any of their sta-es.


The foregoing information whovs 4E clearly why Brasil desires that

tho port of Ne-'r York be opened to the importation of citrus fruits, under

such conditions as 71il1 entirely prevent the introduction of the l.editerra-

nean or other fruit flies. The situation as it has developed, makes

New York practically the ket to the opening of the ports of Argentinex

as the United States would have closed her ports against Aggentine fruits

if Argentine had not kiaix prohibited the importation of Brasioian fr-its.

The fact that it tares at least double the time to move

fruit from Rio de Janeiro to lINew York th-t it takes to move ut from Rio Cde

J!,neiro to Buenos Aires, mates the latter market immenesely more desirable,

and rakes the port of New York doubly secure. Argentine has had her ports

,ide open for 'fifty years or more, and yet according to the recent report

of the bet authority, the United States Departmentof Agriculture, the

oediterranean fruit fly has not become established in that county.

The United States Vir ually closed the Ar-etine Mlarket f

aga inst 3rasil.

1.) It is not expected that 3rasil -'.ill 1.:oice any large oxportatLions

of oranges to the United States. In the first place, her orange

-industry isnot sufficiently orjanised or developed to compete vith the

fruits of tie United States. In the second place, there is only one packing

louse establishd t S oncalo) ready to turn out a regular/ co=_iercial

pack and this packing house can deliver only '-000 crates mxplxy, at a

n.axium .per dayr. .... Brasil zxxx dishes is to r.Eke sone arrangoaaent -:.ith

the UnitedStates that will enable the continuance of her exportation to

the near-by park-et of Argcihtine.

2.) As has been shown, Brasil has enjoyed for aany years a lucrative

export to Argentine, in fresh fruits. During the visit of -1 iozenette

to Argentine in 1925, he stated to the I,,'ininster of Agria'.lture of that

country, that the United States would prohibit the importation of fruits

from Argentine, unless Aggentine prohibited the importation of fruits

from Brasif. So axxAx the Argentine IIinister of Agriculture issued

a decree, published April 16, 1925, pcobhbibng closing the ports of

that country against all B3asilian fruits except lemons, pineapples, cocoaks

and bananas.

The following telegram and correspondence have direct bearing

upon this question.
