MEET US AT THE EXPERIMENT STATIONIT
Thursday's program consists of field inspections
- a series of groves and a program at the Exper-
imental Field Station. The motorcade will be
personally conducted and a loud speaker will be
used. We will visit an outstanding group of
insect pest control blocks where effects of use
of newer insecticides can be observed. From
this grove the group will gather at the root-
stock trials in Norman Platt's grove on King's
Highway. This plot is 6 years old, budded to
red grapefruit. Forty-eight different root-
stocks have been replicated. Actual differences
are outstanding. Tabulations will be available
and plots marked. From here the motorcade will
proceed to the Citrus Field Station on King's
Highway 1 miles south of Orange Avenue, where
the Experiment Station group will take charge.
At noon a picnic dinner will be served with the
compliments of the Indian River Citrus League.
