 U. S. Outlook Aids B, C. Fruit
Retention of British Preference Inspires
Okanagan With Confidence Over Prospects.
PENTICTON, June 30. U The
prospect of a heavy drop in
apple production in the United
States this season and the short
crop in Great Britain and continental countries are encouraging
the hope that there will be some
real profits for B. C. producers
in the selling of the 1938 crop.
In view of the comparatively
low prices expected for the 1937
crop, when final returns are distributed in early July, the outlook is helping to promote a feeling of confidence, more especi*
ally as the retention of the British preference throughout the
whole of the approaching selling
season is believed to be assured.
Condition of the U. S. apple
crop for early June, as officially
reported from Washington, was
only 55 per dent, of normal, whmh
was 22 per cent, below the condition at the same period in 1937.
The heavy drop in anticipated
production does not affect the
Pacific Northwestern states, with
which   British   Columbia   boxed
apples come into direct competition. In these £ ates production
may be slightly higher than last
year, but in nearly all the Mid-
Western and Eastern States, the
frosts of April and May did considerable damage, and the set of
fruit is light as compared with
last year.
When the apple marketing
season opens in the Northwestern
States it is believed there will be
a strong demand from the Eastern States as well as from Europe, which should favorably affect apple values in both British
Columbia and the Northwestern
States' boxed-apple regions.
While the apple crop is down
in the United States, it is expected that for the second consecutive year the nation's total
pear crop may establish a new
production record. Of the more
than 39,000,000 bushels of pears
expected in the United States,
the Pacific Coast states of California, Oregon • and Washington
are expected to produce 70 per
cent, of the total-
