Apple Growers Ask Who Holds The Bag Ottawa county orchardmen put in a nervewrack ing season of fighting fruit insects and diseases, produced a big crop of excellent apples, took an economic beating for their pains, and now are ask ing county agricultural agent Carl S. Bittner, Oak Harbor, who is holding the bag on this snipe hunt. The crop of approximately 750,000 bushels for the county was ripened maturely by unusuallly hot weather in September and the public was not ready to eat an apple a day per individual. The Heller and Yingling Orchard in the county produced fruit which was rated most perfect of any examined in the state by specialists from Ohio State University. The public could obtain apples in any quantity and the quality of the fruit was good but buyers stayed out of the market. An appeal from local growers brought the Federal Surplus Commodities Corporation into the county to help move the fruit to market but this was a salvaging operation to ward off complete disaster. Mr. Bittner is not sure whether recommending apple tree wood for fuel or a campaign to revive the old New England custom of apple pie for breakfast would be most effective in preventing a repetition of the 1939 tragedy. City people seem to resent any curtailment of agricultural production but there has been no marked urban reaction against forced sales of bankrupt farm properties. Commercial fruit growing compels the producers to invest heavily in time and money before a crop can be harvested. The cost of producing each crop after the trees begin bearing is high, and few orchard owners are wealthy enough to survive a succession of bai marketing years. The situation in Ottawa county is typical of the rest of Ohio and of other appleproducing sections of the nation. Cutting down a sufficiently number of apple trees would put future crops of the fruit in the luxury class which would stimulate demand but everyone connected with the Ohio fruit indus try hesitates to recommend such a practice when there are so many millions of people in the United States who need the health protetion proved to be present in this fruit.
