Abstract:An example of forehandedness is the government's investigation of methods and costs of eradicating currants and gooseberries to control the blister rust disease before it reaches valuable stands of sugar pine in California. The work was begun none too early, for the disease has already spread to the boundaries of that state. In this article the results of initial eradication and re-eradication are compared and costs and recommendations are given. Experience indicates that present methods are so close on the way to perfection and that such further reduction in control costs may be expected as to make the protection of commercial bodies of sugar pine entirely practicable.
