Abstract:The Plant Quarantine and Control Administration has recently been organized to take over all the plant quarantine and control work formerly carried out by the Federal Horticultural Board, the Bureau of Entomology, and the Bureau of Plant Industry. Among the important developments of the year have been a discontinuance of the admission of certain fruit stocks, the spread of the pink bollworm of cotton, the remarkable success of the Mexican fruit worm quarantine and eradication work, and a reorganization of the date scale project.
