Variable conditions in the fruit growing areas of California make it difficult to project the results from evaluation tests in one area to another. As a consequence, field plots were established for the 1957 season in Bartlett pear orchards—in Sacramento, Solano, El Dorado, Lake, and Mendocino counties—for University personnel to evaluate spray materials under local conditions. As a correlative evaluation, spray chemicals used in codling moth and aphid control plots were checked for their effects on spider mites.
