San Jose Scale on Deciduous Fruit Trees

The following report appeared in The San Jose Scale: Its Occurrences in the United States by L. O. Howard and C. L. Marlatt, published in Washington by the Government Printing Office, 1896, pages 19-20.

Prof. Rolfs was in charge of the experiment station in DeFuniak Springs when he discovered the outbreak of San Jose scale. He gave a speach about Diversifed Farming at the Florida Chautauqua as part of the annual Farmers Institute held in DeFuniak Springs. When the DeFuniak Springs station closed, he was tranferred to the experiment station in Gainesville.
