"BUDWOOD REGISTRATION PROGRAM
--ITS PROGRESS and VALUE" -Gerald
Norman, Special Inspector, State Plant
Board, Winter Haven

Florida has the most complete budwood
registration program found in any citrus
W producing area of the world. What can
W.H. Mathews we as growers, expect of it?



NEW MATERIAL FOR SCALES AND
MITES" J. E. Brogdon, Entomolog-
ist, Agricultural Extension Service,
Gainesville

\ New pesticides are constantly being
k screened and released for use on citrus.
Gerald Norman Most of these chemicals have certain
limitations, and are rather specific in
Action. This makes the job of spraying
Florida citrus increasingly difficult. Jim
has agreed to give us a quick "rundown"
on some of these newer materials.

"USING the MURCOTT to ITS BEST AD-
VANTAGE" Dr. Paul Harding, Plant
Physologist, U.S. D.A. Horticultural
Station, Orlando

Florida now has another high quality cit-
rus variety; one that is attracting atten-
tion far and wide, but it is so new most
growers don't know how to handle it.
They need to know such things as: When
is it mature? What is the best method
of marketing? How can we develop it to
the best advantage of the grower?

"GREASY SPOT DISEASE and ITS CON-
TROL" Miss Francine Fischer, Asst.
Plant Pathologist, Lake Alfred Citrus
Experiment Station

Greasy Spot disease has become con-
siderably worse in Gulf Coast Citrus
groves; last year it was especially ser-
ious. What can we do to reduce the big
loss of foliage caused by this disease?

1:30 P. M.


"HEAT TREATMENT for OBTAINING
VIRUS-FREE BUDWOOD SOURCES" -
Dr. T. J. Grant, Plant Pathologist,
U. S.D.A. Horticultural Station, Orlando


It has been estimated that some 80% of
Florida citrus is currently infected with
at least one type of virus. Until recent-
.J. Grant ly, the only way to eliminate these was
to produce new seedlings and wait for
them to fruit (to be certain they were
true to type). This would take from 7
to 10 years. Fortunately, due to the bril-
liant research of Dr. Grant and others,
it now appears that we have a short cut
to virus-free sources of most citrus
varieties.

"THE EXPANDING CITRUS INDUSTRY"
- J. R. "Rip Graves, Chairman, Flori-
da Citrus Commission.

Few industries, if any, have expandedas
rapidly and shown the profit to its mem-
bers as has the Florida citrus industry.
This prosperity has led to a very rapid
expansion of acreage. Because of this,
we must expand our efforts in market-
ing the resulting large crops.
