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.
