Excerpt from Report of the Director for the Year Ending October 31, 1931
Although the effects of falling prices of farm products were not felt in Southern New England as early as in some other parts of the country, Connecticut farmers are now facing problems more serious than for the past thirty years. Under such circumstances, efficient and intelligent management becomes increasingly im portant. Farmers look to the Station for technical information on every phase of their business, especially the protection of crops from the ravages of fungous and insect pests. It is imperative that scientific investigation does not lag behind the need, for at best, the learning of nature's laws is a slow process.
During the past year two events have inﬂuenced the Station profoundly. On November 6, 1931, occurred the death of our beloved Director Emeritus, Dr. Jenkins. For more than a half century his great talents were devoted wholly to the Station and to the advancement of agriculture in the State. While this is not the proper place to publish an extended record of his life and work, it is fitting that there be reproduced here the tribute of the Station Staff.
