"SPREADING DECLINE"
Current Report by a Member of the,
Industry Committee
Al Whitmore Orlando

At this time there are spotted around
in the citrus counties, infested trees
that total 5,000 acres.

What lies ahead for the state's fight
against the burrowing nematode and
spreading decline in Florida citrus
groves is entirely up to the growers.





"LET'S START THE GROVE RIGHT"
Jack T. McCown Ass't. Horticulturist
Agricultural Extension Service
Gainesville

A successful citrus grove is dependent
upon soil type and location, root stock,
scion vigor and good management.

E. G. Rohwer, Area Supervisor
Plant Pest Control Branch
USDA
N'Lake Alfred, Florida


Since its discovery in the Miami
1 area in April of last year, the
fly has been under constantat-
ck by state and Federal forces. At one time as much
i 850,000 acres were being sprayed and treated to
ltthe ravages of this most important pest. Mr.Roh-
er will discuss the progress and future outlook of
is campaign.


"CITRUS BY-PRODUCTS"


James W.
Kesterson


James W. Kesterson, Assoc. Chemist
Florida Citrus Experiment Station
Lake Alfred

We have often heard it said that meat
processing plants use everything but
the squeal. Citrus scientists have gone
them one better we are rapidly app-
roaching the stage that by-products de-
rivedfrom citrus waste may ultimately
be of more value than the juice of the
fruit.

irrigation. Dr. Deszyck summarizes the results of the
various irrigation experiments that the Citrus Exper-
iment Station has conducted.
