Quarantine No. 43, on account of the European corn borer, Pyrausta nubilalis, in New England, includes corn, broom corn, celery, green beans in the pod, beets with tops, spinach, rhubarb, oat and rye straw, cut flowers and plants of chrysanthemum, aster, cosmos, zinnia, hollyhock, gladiolus and dahlia.

In New England the quarantine on vegetables, with the exception of corn, is lifted from January first to May thirty-first of each year.

The quarantine work in New England is conducted mostly thru the Boston wholesale vegetable and flower markets, although there are some large growers in the quarantined area where inspection must be made at their shipping houses prior to movement outside the quarantined area.

In New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio and Michigan, the quarantine extends only to corn, broom corn (including all parts of the stalk), Sudan grass and all sorghums, and is operative the entire year.

Road inspection work is now conducted only in the State of Ohio, on main roads running south and west. Inspection is conducted 24 hours a day on eighteen of these roads, from June 15th to September 15th, inclusive.

Close touch is kept with seed corn dealers relative to the shipping of seed corn on the cob, which is not permissable in any section under quarantine.
