THE bulky annual before us consists of reports from the various departments of the South-Eastern Agricultural College, prefaced by editorial notes, which summarise the present position of the college. This appears to be satisfactory, and progress in several directions is being made. The editor is dissatisfied with the recognition of Long Ashton by the Development Commissioners as the chief fruit research station for England and Wales. But it must not be forgotten that Long Ashton serves the most important fruit area in the country, extending from Devonshire to Herefordshire and Worcestershire. Wye, however, is to have a research plantation for fruit and hops.
