Abstract:The Norfolk station. organized primarily for research, has always kept close to the growers, and does some incidental extension work in giving general advice, and meeting special needs. As example of the latter, 1932 work on harlequin bug on crucifers and red spider on strawberry was cited. Work is done by cooperation with extension agencies and with insecticide dealers; by use of newspaper articles and radio talks; by field meetings; and by answering calls from individual growers.
