MARKETING FLORIDA TRUCK CROPS

TALLAHASSEE, FLORIDA

Asst. Marketing Commissioner

INTRODL

The principal Florida carlot truck crop movement is made with-
in an eight-month period, although in the 1930-1931 season carlot
vegetable shipments were reported in every calendar month. The
Florida vegetable shipper has not generally found it advisable or
profitable for his carlot shipping season to extend very far into
the summer months. Within the regular shipping season, nor-
mally November 1st to July 1st, there are periods in which the
best vegetable prices are received and likewise months in which
the poorest prices are received. Whether these high-price or
low-price periods are common to different seasons, or to a suffi-
cient number to establish a safe index or law of averages, is of
more than passing importance. Price records of past seasons
should serve as a basis in approximating the best average market-
ing period of the shipping season for the important, truck crops
of Florida.
Therefore, in "Marketing Florida Truck Crops," the simple aver-
age destination jobbing prices by months embracing several recent
seasons are presented, and to better illustrate the price trends
through different seasons, Charts follow the monthly average
price tables. Comparative monthly price data with accompanying
charts for the Jacksonville, Florida, market are also given. Then
to provide for a more detailed analysis, and a daily shipment and
price record, the daily destination jobbing price average of the
principal Florida vegetables complete for each entire season, and
daily shipments and weekly shipments with cumulative totals are
shown, covering three seasons, 1928-29, 1929-30 and 1930-31. This
daily information is given in regular order by months, combining
the data for one complete month for three different seasons on
one page. The proportion of the Florida volume to the total United
States shipments, and the total competitive shipments by months
during the Florida shipping season for the same three seasons, are

tabulated. Since ..
acreage and county shipment data, this information is given in
detail for several current seasons.
As a fore-runner to the daily, weekly, monthly and seasonal ship-
mnent and price-data, and the other information included, a brief
article abstracts the more detailed information, devoting special
attention to the best marketing period of past seasons, with sub-
stantiating reasons, for each important vegetable. These prepara-
tory remarks really contain the heart of the book.
Destination prices used in this preparation are the simple aver-
age jobbing prices of the important terminal markets, and are
based upon sales of No. 1 grade in standard containers, to jobbers
or other large buyers by receivers. These are not the prices paid
the grower. To arrive at a basis of probable gross returns on No.
1 grade only to the grower F. O. B. shipping point, handling
charges at destination and freight charges must be deducted.
F. O. B. Florida average sales when shown with destination aver-
age quotations represent the prices growers receive Florida load-
ing points. The quotations and shipment data have been taken
from daily market reports issued by the Bureau of Agricultural
Economics cooperating with the Florida State Marketing Bureau.
Acknowledgment is made to the clerical force of the Florida
State Marketing Bureau for their efficient service and hearty co-
operation in the mass of detail work incidental to the prepara-
tion of this book. The author assumes full responsibility, how-
ever, for all the information contained herein. My hope and sole
purpose in preparing the work is that the Florida vegetable grower
and shipper may be enabled through the information it supplies
to realize better returns for his products.

MARKETING FLORIDA GREEN BEANS


January, February and March are the months in which Florida
beans have the least competition and in which Florida beans
dominate the market. For instance, in the months of January
and February, there is practically no competition. In March,
Texas offers competition, but in this month Florida supplies more
than three-fourths of the total U. S. bean shipments. In the period
January through March, Florida markets between 25% and 30%
of its total seasonal bean crop. Of the months common to the
Florida season, October to June, supplies are heaviest in April,
May and June.
In the seasons 1925-26 through 1929-30, the best marketing
period, considering the average for the five seasons, was that of
January-February-March. Considering individual seasons there
were only two exceptions-1928-29 with November-December-Janu-
ary the high three-month period and 1929-30 with February-March-
April the high period. There were only two seasons in the past
six when either November or December prices were higher than


any one of these first three months-the season of 1928-29, when
they were both higher than February or March but lower than
January, and 1929-30 when November ranged above January but
below February and March. The season of 1930-31 followed the
five-year average and January-February-March was again the high
priced period. Prices were the lowest in April, May and June.
About two-thirds the Florida beans are not marketed in this com-
paratively high priced period.
Insofar as the Florida home markets are concerned the best
bean prices are realized in the period January 15th to March 15th.
The next best period is from latter July until November. May
and June are on the average the two lowest-priced months.
It is of course not practical or possible for all bean producing
sections of Florida to have their beans for market in the highest
priced mid-winter period, yet improvement can be made by timely
planning in the planting and marketing of Florida green beans.

MARKETING FLORIDA CABBAGE


The Florida carlot cabbage shipping season begins in December
and ends in May, although six cars were shipped in June, 1931.
Florida has in the last four seasons averaged shipping about 20%
of its total crop in January, 27% in February, 37% in March, 12%
in April and the remainder in May and December. The average
May shipments from Florida of only 27 cars is advisable for May
prices average the weakest of the season. January has averaged
the best price month for Florida cabbage the last four seasons,
1927-28 through 1930-31. Then next in order, March, February,
April.
Florida has severe competition every month of the shipping sea-
son. Florida shipments during no month of the shipping season
equal the total U. S. shipments, in fact the Florida monthly total
is at no time of the season equal to that of Texas. Considering
the average of the last four seasons, the average Florida ship-
ments have amounted to only 11% of the total U. S. shipments in
January, 17% in February, 23% in March, and 9% in April. The
competition isfrom both storage and new cabbage. After Decem-
ber 1, the largest percentage of storage cabbage comes from New
York and Wisconsin, movement continuing through February and
March. Texas is the largest competitor with new cabbage through-
out the Florida season. In December and January South Caro-
lina and Texas are shipping and also in March. In February,
Texas is the only serious competitor in new cabbage that Florida
has, although California ships a limited volume. However, by


April in addition to Texas and South Carolina,- Alabama, Louisi-
ana, Mississippi, and North Carolina are shipping.
It is interesting to note that the high ranking price months
correspond much nearer to the relatively light-shipment months
of new cabbage than to the total U. S. monthly supplies. For in-
stance, the order of monthly average total shipments of green
cabbage from early states from the lightest month up is January,
February, March, April, May. The order of monthly average
destination prices from best month down is January, March, Feb-
ruary, April, May, with the price differential in February and
March, considering the simple average destination price for the
past four seasons, only 13C-the narrowest differential between any
of the months January through May. However, the rank of the
monthly average total U. S. shipments is for the past four sea-
sons, from the lightest month up: April, February, March, Janu-
ary, May. There is not a sufficient diminishing supply of storage
'cabbage from the market in the early months to provide a marked
period of scarcity, for the increasing supplies of green cabbage
tend to compensate for the decrease in storage cabbage and green
cabbage, dominating the market from March, with increasing sup-
plies, brings down the price average to corresponding proportions.
Florida markets show the highest prices for Florida cabbage in'
the period January 1st to February 15th, on the basis of the aver-
age from 1926 to 1931.

MARKETING FLORIDA CELERY


Florida celery has competition within the State, with domestic
and storage offerings and with imports, although the imports
(Bermuda) are of comparatively limited volume. Florida celery
shipments begin in December and continue through June. The
peak-week shipments are usually within the period February 20th
to March 25th. March, April and February in the order named
are the months of heaviest shipments. About 27% the Florida
celery moves in March, 25% in April, 24% in February, and about
10% each in January and May-the remainder in December and
June. In February, March, April and May, California supplies
practically all the domestic new celery competition. For the last
four seasons the celery shipments from California have exceeded
those from Florida in December, January and June, while Florida
shipments have exceeded those from California in February, March
and April, and in May with the exception of May, 1931. As is the
case with cabbage, Florida celery has storage competition, New
York being the heaviest competitor. There is however practically
no storage competition after January 31st.
In addition to local and domestic, and storage competition, there
are other factors involved that affect and influence celery prices-
for instance, variation in quality, yields of preferable sizes, length
of growing season, supply of competing vegetables, aggressive dis-
tribution, spread of peak movement, lack of buying for storage


during peak movement, etc., etc. Taking the seasons 1927-28
through 1930-31 as an average, the total U. S. celery shipments
have, in the period January through April, been lightest in April,
with February second lightest, March third and January fourth.
Taking the same four seasons, the destination jobbing price aver-
age by months shows the following rank: April and February
first with equal rank, with March and January next with equal
rank. The average destination price corresponds more consistently
to the U. S. supplies than Florida shipments which is but natural
considering the comparatively light movement from Florida in
January, after which month practically all the celery is from new
crop offerings.
Taking the price average of the seasons 1925-26 through 1930-31,
each of these months, January through April, have ranked first in
some season. February was highest month in three out of six
seasons and April highest twice. As is indicated above, the month-
ly average prices are fairly uniform and do not show such wide
differential as do some commodities. From January through April
only two states shipped domestic spring celery and after February
there is practically no storage competition and limited import
competition. Consequently, the simple monthly average destina-
tion jobbing prices of the last six seasons show less than a twenty-
cent differential for any of the months, January through April.

MARKETING FLORIDA CUCUMBERS


Following the law of averages, there is usually a period in the
Florida vegetable shipping season when prices are the highest,
when shipments from competitive areas are the lowest, which pro-
vides the best marketing season from strictly a price standpoint.
In the Florida cucumber marketing season, October through June,
there are months of heavy and light shipments, and of high and
low prices.
Considering the four seasons 1927-28, 1928-29, 1929-30 and
1930-31 and the months, November through June, domestic cucum-
ber shipments -are on the average the lightest in the following
months, in the order shown: January, February, December, No-
vember; or stated differently, the heaviest shipments are made on
the average in the order shown: June, May, April, March. Im-
ports have been negligible but the 1930-31 season showed a mate-
rial increase. The period of heaviest imports is that from Decem-
ber through March. Of the seasons 1927-28 through 1930-31, no
carlot shipments for January from any section were reported
except January, 1931 when imports comprised the total of 54 cars.
Based on the average of these four seasons, Florida supplied 83%
the total domestic shipments in November; 89% in December;'
76% in March; 81% in April; 39.6% in May; and 3.7% in June.
In January no domestic carlot shipments were reported any season,
and only a total of 90 cars in February all seasons of which Flor-
ida shipped 5. Florida has marketed about 80% of its total cucum-
ber crop in two months of the eight-month shipping season, namely,


April and May. In April, based on the average of these four cur-
rent seasons, the shipments of the United States are more than
double the total shipments for the months November through
March, and in either May or June about six times as heavy, or in
April and May in which Florida markets 80% of its cucumber
crop, the total U. S. shipments are about eight times the total of
the shipments from November through March. These conclusions
should reasonably well indicate the best and weakest price period
in the Florida cucumber season.
The two first months of the season, November and December,
are better months on the average than the two last months, May
and June. Oilly once in the last six seasons has the November
average price range been below $3.50 per bushel container,-$2.61
in November, 1930. The scarcity of cucumbers in January, Febru-
ary and most of March, is responsible for this being the period of
highest prices of the season. The latter part of April is lower in
price averages than the early part, and by May the downward
tendency is marked.
The highest prices in Florida markets are realized in the
February-to-April period. Prices continue downward in May to
strike bottom in June, with improvement in August. The three
last months, October, November and December are second best in
price averages to the three first months, January, February and
March in Florida markets.

MARKETING FLORIDA EGGPLANT


The average carlot shipments of eggplant from Florida have
been, considering the past ten seasons, about 225 cars per season.
Compared with the most important Florida truck crops, this
volume might indicate to some that heavier shipments from Flor-
ida would not be warranted. In making the statement that a
certain part of the Florida marketing season has averaged the
best, the reasons should be given. The source of the supplies and
particularly the time and extent of competition these sources have
provided to the Florida eggplant shipments would be main con-
siderations.
To establish a good level of averages, the seasons 1927-28
through 1930-31 will be considered in shipment data. In the
season October through July, on the four-season average, Florida
supplied about two-thirds the total eggplant carlot shipments of
the United States. Imports exceeded Florida's average shipments,
Florida shipments averaging about two-thirds the imports. When
the total supplies are considered,-domestic and foreign shipments
-Florida shipments averaged about one-third the total. From
January through May in all seasons 1927-28 through 1930-31,
Florida supplied the U. S. total carlot eggplant shipments, and all
in December except 3 cars in December, 1930; in June, 1928, all
the U. S. shipments; all except 4 cars each in June, 1929 and 1930,
and 3 cars in June, 1931.


If the price rank of all the months of the Florida shipping sea-
son, based upon the monthly simple price average on the larger
markets, over a period of the past six seasons is considered, the
order of highest market months is as follows: March, February,
January-April, May, November-December, June. Market prices
climb in January, continuing the high priced period until well into
April, with seasonal variation in the rank of these four months
with the trend usually downward in May, dropping to the lowest
level of prices in June. This would seem natural, considering that
the domestic eggplant shipments are the lightest in the early four-
month period, yet imports exceed the total U. S. shipments from
December through April, with the result total supplies average
heavier in this period, although the monthly average January-
April has not reached 100 cars in the past four seasons. It must
be remembered, too, that the import supplies are mostly from
Cuba, and sold largely on the New York market, resulting in a
more restricted distribution than Florida eggplant shipments. Con-
sequently, the highest monthly prices of eggplant do not on the
average always correspond to the lowest monthly shipments.
The Florida markets strike their lowest price level in June,
July, August and September. Prices begin advancing in October,
reaching and maintaining the most uniform price level of the sea-
son in the period January through April.

MARKETING FLORIDA LETTUCE


Probably none of the commercially important Florida vegetables
has more serious competition with a specific variety from other
states, in both outside and local home markets than Florida lettuce.
The principal variety shipped from Florida is the Big Boston.
The chief competing variety is the Iceberg from the West. Ari-
zona ships Iceberg heavily from December, as does California
during the entire Florida shipping season; Texas in February and
March, South Carolina in March and April, and North Carolina
in April, ship Big Boston. However in volume the movement of
Big Boston lettuce is negligible compared to that of Iceberg, and
the proportion of the Florida shipments to the total U. S. ship-
ments is decidedly insufficient to establish or control the lettuce
market if its distribution were wide-spread.
For instance, in the average of the seasons 1927-28 through
1930-31, the Florida monthly shipments averaged in November
about 3%, in December about 6%, in January less than 5%, in
February and also March less than 3% of the total U. S. shipments.
The Iceberg lettuce from the West has practically eliminated Flor-
ida Big Boston from the central markets and many of the southern
markets, and sells to better advantage and in larger volume in the


Florida markets than Florida Big Boston. About nine-tenths the
Florida lettuce is sold on the New York market with Philadelphia
the next best outlet. Therefore, competition is severe in both local
and outside markets.
Florida shipments are usually the heaviest in December and
January, while the total U. S. supplies are heaviest in February
and March of the months December through March. In this period
the Florida shipments are lightest in February and March, which
is the period of highest average destination jobbing prices. The
highest average prices for Florida lettuce have been realized in
the past four seasons in the period from February 10th to March
20th. If Florida lettuce were Iceberg and the shipments distrib-
uted to markets in general, no doubt the period of lightest total
U. S. shipments would be the period also of corresponding highest
prices, but since the distribution of Florida Big Boston is confined
mostly to one large market, naturally the less the supply, the more
the price. Based on the average of six different past seasons, the
highest-priced marketing period for Florida lettuce is that from
latter February through most of March.

MARKETING FLORIDA GREEN PEAS


The Florida shipments of green peas begin in November and
continue through April, although the main carlot movement is in
January, February and March. Green peas from Florida have
domestic competition confined almost entirely to California from
December through March, and foreign competition in the same
period is supplied almost exclusively by Mexico. In April, the
supplies from Mexico fade out, although California shipments in-
crease, and shipments begin from Mississippi and South Carolina.
In the period December through April, the lightest total United
States domestic green pea shipments have been made during the
past three seasons in January, and second lightest in February.
Shipments from Mexico have been well timed, therefore, in these
three current seasons, for the heaviest shipments from Mexico
have been made in these two months of lightest U. S. shipments
-January and February. The heaviest carlot volume from Florida
in these last three seasons has moved in February, although the
monthly shipments from Florida hardly average 5% the total of
domestic and import supplies in any of the months January


through April. Considering the average total shipment supplies,
both foreign and domestic, in the months December through April,
for the seasons 1928-29 through 1930-31, April, because of the
heavy increase in domestic supplies, has the heaviest shipments.
Next in order is February, then January, March and down to the
month of lightest shipments, December.
Therefore, if the average of the last three seasons should be
maintained, from purely a carlot shipment supply standpoint, it
would appear that December, latter February and March would
offer the best market prospects with January much better than
April-as April total supplies average more than twice the ship-
ments of any of the four previous months. Not so much because
of a strongly competing variety of green peas, but because of the
fact California is the strongest domestic competitor, and Mexico
the strongest import competitor, both distributing largely to the
western and central markets, it would seem Florida, with a com-
paratively limited volume of green pea shipments, could wisely
distribute among the eastern markets.






MONTHLY DESTINATION SIMPLE AVERAGE JOBBING
PRICES, FLORIDA GREEN PEAS IN HAMPERS


Daily supplies of green peas from Florida on the larger terminal
markets for the past five or six seasons have not been sufficient
to establish regular weighted or simple average destination job-
bing prices, which could in turn be converted into monthly average
prices. Therefore the destination monthly averages illustrated by
chart are necessarily omitted.
The usual average seasonal price range of Florida green peas in
bushel hampers on the northern markets is from $2.25 to $4.25
with sales at times reaching $5.00 or slightly better. In the 1928-


29 season, the eastern markets ranged from $2.25-2.75 to $3.50
during March. In the 1929-30 season the period latter January
and February ranged from $2.2,5-2.75 and March mostly from
$2.75-4.25. In the 1930-31 season, January prices were mostly
from $4.00-5.00, February 1st to 15th $4.00 down to $2.50, the 15th
to 28th, from $2.50 to $2.75. March was fairly steady at the range
from $2.50-2.75. April 1st to 20th ranged mostly from $2.50 down
to $2.25. The markets usually take an upward trend in latter
February, continuing firm through March.

MARKETING FLORIDA PEPPERS


The domestic competition to Florida peppers is negligible in the
period November through May. Florida supplied the total United
States pepper shipments from November through May in the
1927-28 season; all the United States carlot shipments November
through April, and all except 11 cars in May in the 1928-29 season;
all the United States carlot shipments in the 1929-30 season from
January through April, other states shipping 151 cars in Novem-
ber, 12 cars in December, and 4 cars in May. In the 1930-1931
season, Florida carlot shipments comprised the United States total
from December through April, other states reporting 96 cars in
November and 1 car in May. Thus, in the past four seasons,
Florida has supplied the domestic pepper shipments in the four-
month period January through April, yet has marketed only about
one-half the total Florida shipments in that period.
Thus it appears that insofar as domestic supplies are concerned,
Florida pepper shipments would control the markets, in this early
four-month period, January through April. However, competitive
foreign producing sections must be reckoned with for the period
January through March including April in the 1929-30 and 1930-31
seasons, was the one also of heaviest exports to the United States,
from Cuba and Mexico-the principal foreign competitors. The
seasons 1927-28, 1928-29 and 1929-30 had decidedly the heaviest
carlot supply, including domestic and foreign shipments, in the
period March through June. In the 1930-31 season, however, the
total supplies in December, January and February exceeded those
of March, April and May, with the result Florida peppers brought
the highest prices in March, and in April and May, with the ex-
ception of March 1930, since the 1925-26 season, and June prices
were the highest since the 1926-27 season. Taking the total aver-
age monthly shipments, imports included, for the seasons 1927-28


through 1930-31, carlot supplies have increased as follows in the
Florida marketing season: November 193, December 195, January
253, February 338, March 414, April 418, May 424, June 492.
The pepper markets in the past nine seasons, after considerable
seasonal price variation and fluctuation in November and Decem-
ber, have maintained a comparatively uniform level of quotations.
The tendency of the markets in the different seasons is usually
downward after May 15th and almost invariably after June 1st.
The following table shows the price rank of all the months com-
mon to the Florida shipping season for the last six seasons:
