A grfoola.133, 22pp. Washington, D. C., 1939. 150.9 Ag8 no. 133
Following a brief history of the tomato, the writer discusses the
*: soil, .crop rotation, varieties for market, seed production, preparation
Sof the soil, sowing, cultivation, tying up of the vines, irrigation,
--.- insect control, diseases, harvesting And marketing, storage, cost of
cultivation and profits, and preservation. The point of view from
which the study was written was that of preparation for the United
States market, although it was written for Latin American use.
This pamphlet was summarized under the title "A los Cosecheros
do Tomate" in El Agricultor Puertorriqueno 20(2): 19. Feb. 1940.

S* Contains a brief paragraph giving for tomatoes the varieties, dates
at which they should be shipped,, production per acre in Cuba and the
need for careful selection and packing. Information is given from
the point of view of exporting to the United States. Another para-
graph (p. 19) brings out prices obtained and states that although
Cuban and Puerto Rican tomatoes are equal in quality, the former are
better packed. The writer feels that there is no reason why Puerto
Rico should not equal Cuba in this respect.

A brief summary of a report (Mimeographed Report, no. 15) recently
published by the Agricultural Experiment Station of the University of
Puerto Rico, entitled "Costo de Produccio'n de Tomates en Jayuya, Puerto
Rico, 1939." The Report gives the results of a study of the cost of
*production of tomatoes in the municipality of Jayuya, Puerto Rico, for
the crop harvested at the beginning of 1939, presenting in detail the
hours and costs of human and animal labor used in the individual opera,-
tions, and information on production, receipts and profits per cuerda
of land. There is also an analysis of the factors which influence the
cost of production per cuerda.

competition is very keen on the tomato market. Cuba is the chief
source of supply for New York during the winter and, exports thence an
average of 1094 cars annually.

Season and methods of sowing, transplanting and pruning, tying up
the vine, training the tomato plant, and fertilizers- are discussed.
It is-pointed out that tomatoes of select quality should be produced
for shipment ,and Puerto Rico would then be in a position to enter into
competition with United States producers with the advantages of
climate in its favor. The need for small producer cooperatives and
the advantages of cooperation in this industry are shown. A canning
factor would be a genuine help, and if these factories offered credit,
many small producers would give up growing cane and plant vegetables.

The writer points out that in the semi-arid regions of Puerto Rico
that have been irrigated the vegetable-growing industry promises to
become established permanently and to make good use of the great pos-
sibilities offered by the markets on the American continent. To il-
lustrrte the importance of this type of business, he shows figures on
imports into the United Stites of vegetables, including tomatoes, from
Cuba, Mexico ,-and the Btahnas, and their total value. The tariff paid
under the Fordney McCunbor rind the Hawley-Smoot Tariff Acts. is also
given. Isabela is said to have begun to grow vegetables for export in
1929/30 with good results, and the idea spread the following year.

new tariffs.

Reply to an article in the February-March 1938 issue of the Revista,
pointing out that the lack of credit is the cause of all the Cuban
farm6reIs misfortunes. The financial backers, when they handle, as in
the last three seasons, a volume of 1,400,000 lugs of tomatoes, only
advance the small farmers $100,000.

This is the text of a memorandum submitted on the planned revision
of the Reciprocity Treaty between the United States and Cuba. The
section (pp. 18-19) which dealswith fruits and vegetables, points out the
need for concessions in the fruit and vegetable industry. Figures
compiled on tomato production for the past season and submitted by the
Asociacidn de Cosecheros-Exportadores de Frutas y Vegetales de Cuba
are given. These show that the price received in New. York allows a
margin of only about 26A par lug for sowing, .rent, and other expenses
of producing the crop, after the costs incurred in putting the product
on the American market are deducted. These costs are listed, and the
way the Cuban farmer has managed to export under these conditions is
explained. Suggestions are made for reduction of the tariff.
