Excerpt from Service and Regulatory Announcements: October-December, 1941
Since the Federal quarantine on the European corn borer was revoked on July 15, 1932, the Department has been inspecting and certifying products to meet requirements of various State quarantines on this pest. As a condition of movement into the State the various quarantines require inspection and certification of many kinds of products, such as corn, broomcorn, Sudan grass, Chrysanthemums, asters, hollyhocks, dahlias, beets with tops, celery, beans, rhubarb, and oat and rye straw, which are likely to carry the corn borer from known infested areas.
The work of the Department has been carried on with funds provided through annual appropriations made to the Bureau of Entomology and Plant Quarantine for this purpose. Funds provided for the current fiscal year are less than one half of the amount available during preceding years and are inadequate to pro vide inspection necessary to give service throughout the fiscal year. Since July of this year, the inspection and certification work have continued without re duction in efficiency, but available funds will be exhausted by December 31, 1941, when the work will be discontinued.
