More field days to come you probably are wondering why we do not announce
them all at once as has been done in past years. Well this year we had to wait and
see if we were going to have anything to show. So here goes on two more good ones

Dr. James M. Crall states that the new buildings, greenhouse and research plots
are now being used by the workers at the Watermelon and Grape Laboratory at Leesburg,
Florida. The new facilities are located about five miles south of Leesburg on U.S.
27 on the west side of the highway. Due to difficulties inherent in moving to new
location, no field day will be held this year.
Dr. Paul Everett, located at the new south Florida Field Laboratory in
Inmokalee, has research work in progress. The new facilities are in use, however,
inside cabinet work and laboratory equipment are still being installed. The
laboratory and plots are located about four miles north of Immokalee on the west
side of state route 29.
We are pleased with these new facilities and I am sure Dr. Crall and Dr.
Everett would be happy to have you stop and see their layout.
