The Institute Advisory Committee felt that all citrus
growers would like to see the various types of equip-
ment "designed to do the job" in young citrus groves
demonstrated. We have asked Dalton Harrison to con-
tact the Florida Retail Farm Equipment Assn. and in-
vite them to demonstrate tractors, tree-hoes, banking
machines, etc. in our 4-H Club demonstration grove.

FLORIDA CITRUS RESEARCH FOUNDATION


The Florida Citrus Research Foundation is
organized under state law as a non-profit corporation,
with the objective of making available suitable land and
facilities for vital research activities necessary to bring
about a better tomorrow in the citrus industry.
Its affairs are managed by a Board of Trustees,
and its present officers are: A.H. Whitmore, president;
Marvin H. Walker and John T. Lesley, vice-presidents;
Herman F. Steele, secretary; and Marvin H. Walker,
treasurer. Trustees are Wilbur Charles, C. F. Faw-
sett, Jr., John T. Lesley, Marvin H. Walker, J. R.
Graves, Bob Pitman, A.V. Saurman, A.H. Whitmore,
James C. Morton, G. D. Sloan and Herman F. Steele.


WHY YOUR HELP IS NEEDED!
Merton L. Corey -
ORGANIZATION DIRECTOR
All of us in the Florida Citrus industry,
and our friends in allied businesses,
Shave a vital interest in the continuance
w within our industry of a sound self-bet-
terment program. Intensive research
is necessary. Research requires land.
Good land is scarce. Fortunately, a
tract of suitable land of about 500 acres
west of Highway 27, about ten miles south of Leesburg,
has been secured.....Since all research gains made on
this land will benefit you, shouldn't you help in the pur-
chase?



We take this opportunity to introduce
Mr. Ed Stanwood -
who is U.S.D.A. 's Superintendent
at the research project.

*e *+*** ** '

The progressive Florida citrus industry recog-
nizes that research is the key to tomorrow's success.
The picture shows Drs. Philip Reece and Don Scheer
making hand pollinations in
the artificial hybridization of
citrus to produce new varie-
ties. All opened flowers and
immature buds are removed.
The buds about to open are
opened, and all stamens re-
moved, then pollen is applied
to the pistil from some other
male parent that has been
selected because of some
desirable qualities it may
transmit. Branches on
which cross pollinations
have been made are covered
by paper bags for five to
seven days to prevent insect
pollination.
