Apples vs. Oranges
Steadily lower prices for oranges
| in recent years and sharply reduced
jvalues this season have brought this
[southern fruit into direct competi-
| tion with  Canadian  grown apples.
j Speaking   before   the   Quebec   Po-
| Biological     and     Fruit     Growing
i Society Rene Trepanier stated that
! it was "imperative that apple grow?
|ers find ways and means of reduc-
| ing their costs, as we cannot hope to
meet the competition of oranges a{
15   to   19   cents   per   dozen   with"
Mclntoshes selling at 19 to 29 cents
per dozen." Moreover Mr. Trepanier
warned that competition is almost
certainly, bound to increase.   Very
substantial   blocks   of   new   orange
orchards  are   coming  into  bearing
and it is expected that the crop in
11938 will be a record one running
more than 20% above last year.
But oranges are not the only fruit
crop that is increasing. In Quebec,
Ontario and British Columbia, new
apple orchards set out since the war
are now coming into full "bearing-
and it is expected that the crop in
British Columbia alone will double
within the next few years. More
moderate but still substantial will
be the increase in bearing acreage
in Ontario and Quebec. At the Quebec convention this week as at
similar conventions in the Maritime
Provinces and British Columbia
resolutions were passed asking the
authorities at Ottawa to do everything possible to retain the present
British e preference on Empire
apples. There, is some fear that this
concession may be lost as a result
of the trade negotiations now under
way between London and Washington, negotiations that %re expected
eventually to include Canada.
