Truckers Must Sell in As
Some of the Edgefield farmers are
now turning to truck crops since
the arrival of the boll weevil.
Truckers usually make good money,
but sometimes they fail. However,
most of their failures result either
from improper grading and packing
or from bad marketing. Experiences
show that they only way for a com
munity to handle truck crops is to do
everything aa an organization. The
truckers of Beaufort find that they
are paid handsomely by buying and
selling through organizations; the
Florence Irish potatoes that sold
through the potato association real
ized $6.00 per barrel. Do these sell
ing organizations pay? It seems so.
If you are interested attend the
meeting to discuss the marketing of
truck that will be held at Trenton,
July 16th, ll o'clock.
