How To Get More
Money For Beans
Marketing Division Urges More Care
In Handling Drying Prevents
Weevils Egg Prices Improve
The price of eggs has fluctuated
considerably during the past week,
but are now back to 60c a dozen. . The
presence of so many tourists In the
city has no doubt strengthened the
The Division is now receiving a very
good quality of butter In bulk which
Is selling for 35c wholesale. Abetter
price could be received If the butter
were put up in one pound cartonB.
. Reports from the mainland point to
the fact that there would be a good
market for Hawaiian grown beans If
more care were used by the growers
to dry their crops thoroughly, and thus
prevent the losses through weevils.
In order to get best results, there
should, be a large artificial dryer at
Kahului to take care of all the beans
and corn raised on Maui for export.
Beans and corn that will keep several
months in Kula where It Is cool, will
become Infested with weevils within
a month after reaching Honolulu or
. the mainland. Beans imported from
the mainland to the islands can be
kept in storage here many months
without showing any trace of weevil.
The reason the local dealers prefer
the mainland beans to those grown in
the Island is this; but there is not one
of them that would not perfer to buy
homogrown beans of the same var
ieties which were properly cured and
free from weevil. Anotter matter
which should have the attention of
covered with a film of dirt, either
tion In which they are often sent to
market More than fifty percent of
the beans coming to the Division are
covered with a film of dirty, either
due to carelessness in threshing or
shipping in bags that are dirty. Even
at the present high cost of new bags,
it pays to use them. This year has
been the most prosperous ever en
joyed by the bean farmers of Kula
and by using improved methods in
marketing their crops, even more
money can be made from this crop.
Now Irish potatoes are in demand.
Now is the time for producers to ship.
