The phony peach disease is an infectious systemic disease for which no cure of the diseased tree is known. It is now known to occur in twelve Southern States and in Illinois. It is generally present and severe in Georgia and South Alabama; during the last few years more than a million trees have been either pulled or abandoned and many growers have been forced out of production. Individual cases are widely scattered throughout all of the other Gulf States but its result~ in these areas are not yet commercially destructive; very few infections have been found in the remaining states, namely Oklahoma, Arkansas, Missouri, Tennessee, South Carolina, North Carolina, and Illinois. An eradication campaign was begun, in 1929, by the Federal Department of Agriculture, in cooperation with the State of Georgia, which at that time was the only state in which the phony disease had been recognized. This work has been continued and extended to all areas now known to be infected.
