BIG FUTURE FOR
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
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."
