FOR WORD


Tho information shown in this tabulation was compiled chiefly from
|
records in the Bureau of .Agricultural lconomtice relating to the Federal-tWte

inspection service for fruits and vegetables and from reports of supervising

inspectors and other Federal and State representatives. Shippers and

handlers cooperated.

There was considerable variation in data obtained from different sources,

and in some instances the information can be considered as approximate only.

In a wnber of important States the inspection certificates do not show the

loader's count of packages in the shipment. The loading of cars of a certain

commodity inspected in a State may not be entirely representative of all ship-

ments of that coinodity from the State. Loadings may vary with the district,

the shipper, the period in the season, market requirements, and from year to

year. The number shown as usual loading may in some cases be the approximate

average load. Where it is known that the number refers to the average rather

than the usual loading, it has been marked "av".

Baskets and hampers listed are containers that meet the requirements

of the U. S. Standard Container Acts. Inside dimensions in inches, of crates,

lugs and boxes, are shown in parentheses and refer to the depth, width, and

length, respectively. Minor variations from the dimensions shown for many of

these containers are numerous.

SWeights shown for containers are net unless otherwise stated and are

approximate only.
