Abstract:Over 95,000 narcissus bulbs are being grown in the United States at the present time. They must all be inspected twice and certified before shipment is permitted. All but sixteen States grow some narcissus and in many of them one or more bulb-fly or eelworm infestations have been found. Recommended changes in the present procedure relate to financial and technical assistance to the States, investigations, and minor changes in the quarantine regulations.
