They said that berries that set around in th<) sun for any consequential length of time would depreciate rapidly and thus lower their grade. ''We ! believe you will be dollars and I cents better off by making j seve al trips to the cooler a ι day if you have enough ber ries rather than waiting for a tru k load that would require eonsideralbe time to pick." Stellar said. It was also noted that farm ers with berries whether they have actually signed up or not vith American Foods are in vited to b· ins their berries to the Tabor City market for handling. Stellar said no ' sign ing up" was necessary and that they would be glad to handle all berries for local growers provided the pack was good cnotigi). lie also asked that growers be extremelv careful with in secticides and that proper waiting periods were observed bet wen spraying and picking.
