ST. VINCENT BANANA GROWERS ASSOCIATION

REPORT OF THE BOARD OF MANAGEMENT


The NINTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE BANANA BOARD for the period 1st
October, 1961, to 30th September, 1962, to be laid before the Association in
General Meeting to be held on Friday the 14th December, 1962 at 10.00 a.m.
The Board of Management have the honour to present the Annual Report
on the working of the Association together with the financial statements and
the Auditors' report thereon for the year ended 30th September, 1962.
PRODUCTION :
In spite of the efforts made to pass the 2,000,000 stems mark for the year
under review, production fell short of the estimate by some 252,805 stems,
mainly on account of the disastrous windstorm of the 25th June last, when
we lost about 80% of the crop on the Leeward side of the island.
However, 353 growers, with windstorm losses of 20% and over received
insurance compensation totalling $126,350.42.

PRICE ADJUSTMENT SCHEME:
During the course of the year $32,068.31 was paid into the Fund and
$107,429.34 was debited in order to pay growers 40 per pound when the 'price
paid to the Association was between 3.07 and 5.03 cents per pound.
Under this scheme, the price to growers for the coming winter season
will not be less than 4 cents per lb.

FERTILIZER :
2,650 Tons of fertilizer was imported and issued to growers on the basis
of about 10% strictly cash and 90% with a down payment of 25% and 75%
long term credit. Never before in the history of the Association was so much
fertilizer issued in any one calendar or financial year.
However, it is evident that there is a much greater consciousness among
growers of the importance of the regular use of fertilizer and the Board has
decided to make larger amounts of fertilizer available hi the future.

FUTURE OF THE INDUSTRY:
THE PRESENT PRICE STRUCTURE with the Purchasing Company expires on
the 31st March, 1963. The contract expires in 1964. It is reasonable to assume
that the company and ourselves would like to start negotiations for a new
contract early- in 1963.
THE RESEARCH SCHEME for which H.M.G. provided 50,000 for research
in the Windward Islands started later than was expected in 1961. Nevertheless,
there are definite indications that there is a lot to learn from the scheme by way
of improved fertilizer formulas, rates and timing of application. In most
areas the need for more potash and less phosphates has been clearly demon-
strated and the new formula is likely to be 16:4:30 N.P.K.
Promising new varieties of bananas are being tested.

LONDON DELEGATION-1962:
On account of adverse weather conditions in the United Kingdom, plus
the fact that larger quantities of sub-standard fruit were arriving, the regular
Green Boat Price was depressed by 7. Os. Od. which is equal to 10 per lb.,
drop to growers as from the 6th August, 1962.
At this stage the dictators of the G.B.P. were Messrs. Elders & Fyffes,
Agents, for Jamaica bananas. In spite of the adverse market conditions pre-
viously mentioned, we could not conceive that such a drop was justified.
Accordingly, a decision was made at WINBAN level that a small delegation
should proceed to London, to investigate the market and if necessary, negotiate
with the marketing companies. Whether Geest Industries Ltd., saw the writing
on the wall or whether Mr. J. Van Geest was dissatisfied with the mechanics
of the G.B.P., we do not know. Whatever the reasons, Geest Industries decided
to hold the fort and for the first time in the history of the marketing of















bananas in the U.K., a second G.B.P. was established for Windward Is ands
bananas at 67. 5s. Od. as compared with the regular price of 60. 5s. Od. Mr.
J. Van Geest should be commended for his bold action and we are therefore
recommending that at this meeting growers should show their appreciation by
moving a vote of thanks to him for the bold gamble he took in 'stablishing
his own G.B.P. This was only possible because our fruit at the time was
definitely the best in the market. In this connection, we wish to stress the
efforts of the Delegation. They also are to be highly commended.

QUALITY :
The banana market in the U.K. is so sensitive to quality that in order to
maintain the advantage we have just attained, no effort should be spared by
growers to produce top grade fruit, cut and delivered as specified by the pur-
chasing company.
To take a realistic view, there is no doubt whatsoever that with increased
world production, and the desire of every producing country to participate
in the profitable U.K. market, we have to be prepared to increase our efficiency
and productivity with the greatest possible emphasis on standard and quality.
Accordingly we recommend that for the good of the Industry and the
economy of the Territory, all persons and bodies able to use any degree of
influence, should at all times encourage growers to accept and support the
expert technical advice offered through the Board. In the final analysis,
there is always a market for quality fruit.

THE EUROPEAN COMMON MARKET:
Regardless of the uncertainty of the final terms H.M.G. may secure for us
if/or when U.K. joins the Common Market the B.W.I. have the assurance that
they will receive +hb --'+ns of Overs-eas Associated Territories, equal to those
of France, Italy, Belgium and Holland.
If growers take the advice contained in the Perryman Report of closer
planting irrigation and improved fertilizer practices coupled with the quality
advantage we now enjoy the Board feel that there is every justification for
optimism in the future of the Industry.

COMPETITION AMONG GROWERS:
During the year, Geest Industries kindly consented that the unpaid
balances of the Incentive Bonus for the year 1961 should be retained by the
Association and utilised for the improvement of our Buying Stations and for
holding a competition among growers as a stimulus to improved cultural
practices, better quality fruit and greater production.
The number of entries, some 200, was rather disappointing. We are grate-
ful to Mr. Van Geest for placing the funds at our disposal and we hope that
some benefit will accrue to the Industry, notwithstanding the lack of enthusi-
asm shown by growers.

RETIREMENT OF MEMBERS OF THE BOARD :
Messrs. L. L. Punnett, I. Child and N. Findlay retire at this Annual General
Meeting in accordance with Section 19 (3) of Ordinance No. 44 of 1954.
They are all eligible for re-election.

AUDITORS :
Messrs. Bovell & Skeete have again given us excellent service.

THANKS:
The Board would like to thank all those who have worked hard during
this year to ensure the progress of the Industry and to express the hope that
all will strive to make it second to none in the West Indies.

Chairman.

AUDITORS' REPORT TO THE MEMBERS OF THE
SAINT VINCENT BANANA GROWERS ASSOCIATION


We have examined the Balance Sheet of the Saint Vincent Banana
Growers Association as at 30th September, 1962, and the related statement of
Income and Expenditure for the year ended on that date and have obtained all
the information and explanations we have required. Our examination in-
eluded a general review of the accounting procedures and such tests of
accounting records and other supporting evidence as we considered necessary.

In our report on the 1961 financial statements we drew attention to the
substantial difference of $180,535 between the price adjustment funds and
price adjustment reserve and the fact that if the reserve is to be readily avail-
able for the purposes for which it was created it is imperative that the whole
reserve be represented by easily realizable assets.

At 30th September 1962, the difference between the funds and the reserve
was $67,993.

This improvement in the liquid po.itionu of the Price Adjustment Fund
has been as a result of transfers amounting to $37,180 from General Working
funds and the fact that these latter funds have also been used to meet price
support to Growers without using the price adjustment Funds set aside for
this purpose. A net transfer of $75,361 from the price adjustment reserve
to Income and Expenditure account was necessary under the principles of the
scheme but no transfer of funds was actually made.

This is the main reason for the substantial reduction of $114,770 in the
working funds so that this aspect of the Financial position of the association
mu t still be viewed with concern.

In our opinion the accompanying Balance Sheet and related statement
of Income and Expenditure are properly drawn up so as to exhibit a true and
correct view of the state of affairs of the Association as at 30th September
1962, and the results of its operations for the year ended on that date, according
to the best of our information and the explanations given to us and as shown
by the books of the Association.
