PREFACE
 In the preparation of this book I have tried to keep constantly before me the conditions of theaverage farm in the Northeastern States with its small apple orchard. It has been my aim to setdown only such facts as would be of practical value to an owner of such a farm and to state thesefacts in the plain language of experience. This book is in no sense intended as a finalscientific treatment of the subject, and if it is of any value in helping to make the fruit departmentof the general farm more profitable the author will be entirely satisfied.The facts herein set down were first learned in the school of practical experience on the writer'sown farm in Western New York. They were afterwards supplemented by some theoretical training

and by a rather wide observation of farm orchard conditions and methods in New York,Pennsylvania, the New England States and other contiguous territory. These facts were firstput together in something like their present form in the winter of 1909-10, when the writer gavea series of lectures on Commercial Fruit Growing to the Short Courses in Horticulture atCornell University. These lectures were revised and repeated in 1910-11 and are now put intheir present form.The author's sincere thanks are due to Professor C.S. Wilson, of the Department of Pomologyat Cornell University, for many valuable facts and suggestions used in this book, and for acareful reading of the manuscript. He is also under obligations to Mr. Roy D. Anthony of thesame Department for corrections and suggestions on the chapters on Insects and Diseases andon Spraying.
