Abstract

A drop in annual production from between 40,000 and 50,000 100-pound bags of broad–fava–beans in San Mateo County before 1920 to a total of 847 100-pound bags in 1949 was caused by the spread of the broad bean weevil, Bruchus rufimanus Boh. through the central coast area from San Francisco Bay south to San Luis Obispo.
