In the November issue of the Bulletin some idea of the crop losses due to plant diseases was given. Obviously the farmer should be concerned in preventing these losses if he is to profit most from his labor. The control of plant disease lies in prevention rather than cure. In most cases, the individual plant is not of sufficient value to warrant an attempt to cure it. The exceptions would be in those cases where a valuable individual plant such as a shade tree becomes diseased and it would be desirable to save it.
