"Many California citrus growers have reported in recent years that they were securing lower yields of fruit per acre than in the earlier history of their industry. Complaint also has been made that an increasing proportion of the fruit of the leading commercial varieties of oranges and lemons was abnormal or 'off type' in size, form, color, smoothness of skin, or other important characteristics.... The results obtained in bud-selection experiments carried on during the past five years indicate that by top-working with buds from those having consistently good records for productiveness and quality the inferior or 'drone' trees of such varieties as Washington Navel and Valencia oranges can be made productive and profitable. This bulletin describes the methods that have been found effective and practicable in locating the desirable and undesirable trees in groves and for transforming the latter when found." -- p. 2
