The Legislature has found and determined and does hereby declare that the boll weevil is a public nuisance, a pest and a menace to the cotton industry. Due to the interstate nature of boll weevil infestation, it is necessary to secure the cooperation of cotton growers, and other state and federal governments to carry out a program of boll weevil suppression or eradication. The purpose of this article is to secure the suppression or eradication of the boll weevil and to provide for certification of a cotton grower's organization to cooperate with state and federal agencies in the administration of cost-sharing programs for the suppression or eradication of the boll weevil. This article should be liberally construed to achieve these above purposes.
