P2GE THREE BIG FUTURE FOR EAR PARSONS TELLS GROWERS STANFORD UNIVEHSITY, Cul., July 28. A big future for pear cul ture on the Pncifio const wns pro Vlictcd todny before the -Kith niinunl convention of the California state fruit growers nsDocinWit by It. II. Parsons, Seattle, introduced as one of the largest pear growers in the world. IIo said that the now nud little de veloped field for t ho 'pear grower was in tho Minuter markets. At present the growers have paid atten tion, almost exclusively, to tho for eign nnd lnrgcr domestic markets. Tho ranid development of pear cul ture Mr. Parsons said makes neces fiity bettor development of marketing facilities and organization to1 ac complish the object. "Whcro soil nnd growing condi tions nro correct," ho said, "and sell ing nnd marketing nro properly hand led, pear growers of tho west, and particularly in Oregon and Califor nia, can look forward to prosperity which will equal if not exceed that of nil other deciduous fruits in this part of tho temperato zone." Mr. Pnrsons told of tho fight ngainst blight nnd of observations at his orchard at Medford, Oregon, lie recommended bridgo-grufting, the connection of nn isolated, diseased part of n tree, with tho trunk by means of grafting, as u useful rem edy. A. L-. Whisker, of, (Irons Valley, Cal., president of tho Cross Valley fanners club, said tho important problem of pear ciilturo lay in the, development of blight-resistant var ieties and roots. "Absolute eradication of blight can not be hoped for," said Mr. Whisker, "but blight control is u reasonable nnd practicable expectation. "Eventual delivery from the blight problem can result from the breed ing of varieties of high quality which shall be strongly blight -resistant, in root, trunk and branch."
