REPORT OF THE BOARD OF MANAGEMENT


THE Tenth Annual Report of the Board of Management for the period 1st
October, 1962, to 30th September, 1963, to be laid before the Association
in General Meeting to be held on Monday, 30th December, 1963, at 10.00 a.m.


The Board of Management is pleased to present the Annual Report on
the working of the Assoeiation together with the financial statements for the
yeat ended 30th September, 1963.

Production:
Production for the period was 1,944,923 stems and 8,099 crates weighing
54,051,045 lbs. This is the best year since 1958/59, but it still falls short of
the target of 2,000,000 stems which we had hoped to achieve. There are, how-
ever, indications that, barring any serious disaster, our production in the coming
financial year should increase by some 15 per cent. With the anticipated
improvement and extension of feeder roads in the New Year, much more land,
hitherto 'uncultivated, should be brought into use thereby boosting our produc-
tion further.

We regret to record that the windstorms that hit St. Vincent as offshoots
of Hurricanes Edith and Flora on 25th and 30th September, 1963 caused losses
of more than 20% to 618 growers who automatically qualified for Hurricane
insurance. It is estimated that the amount of insurance to be paid will be
in the vicinity of $130,000.00. The losses throughout the-territory including
growers who did not qualify for insurance and uninsured bananas (plant
bananas) are estimated by the Technical StAff to be about 30% overall.

However, through the good offices of the Government, Her Majesty's
Government is paying for 1,500 tons of fertilizer valued at $193,000.00 to be
issued to all growers on the following basis:-

Growers with. less than 50 acres of bananas-Free.
Growers with 50 acres to 100 acres of bananas-50% of cost of fertilizer.
Growers with 100 acres or more of bananas-Cost price.

It is expected that the distribution will be undertaken by the Department
of Agriculture and full details of the Scheme will be published soon. The first
shipment should arrive towards the end of November.

Her Majesty's Government is also providing a sum not exceeding $36,000.00
to help the Association to meet the extra cost of leaf spot and borer disease
control.

Fertiliser:
3,700 Tons of fertilizer valued at $431,811.00 was imported by the Associa-
tion and issued to growers under the usual terms. This is the largest quantity
of fertilizer ever issued by the Association for any similar period. It is apparent
that growers have become aware of the necessity for applying fertilisers at
the right time. A pleasing feature of this year's production is a noticeable
increase in the average weight of bananas shipped.

Price Adjustment Scheme:
During the year a sum of $21,533.00 was deposited into the Fund and
$253934:00 'withdrawn during the wihter when the Green Boat Price remained
at an abnormally low level for a considerable' period. The Scheme is under-
written by Government who .were called upon to provide funds after the Asso-
ciation's resources had 'fallen to a level specified by the Scheme. Government's
contribution was $45,478.94. The present state of the reserve as shown in the
balance sheet is $50,200.00. This has now been fully refunded.











The Scheme was due to expire on the 31st March, 1963, but at the request
of WINBAN; .Colonial Office extended it for one. yeat.to 31st. Mdrch, 1964.
Until then grower's are assured of a contribution from Government whenever
the Green Boat Price falls below 60. 5. 0. provided that the total contribution
is less than $382,838.00.
The Board of Management in co-operation with the Windward Islands
Banana Growers Association (WINBAN) hopes to prevail upon the Colonial
Office to extend or modify the scheme to cover the Industry for the next few
years.
Research Scheme:
Because of some unforeseen difficulties, the Banana Research Scheme for
the Windward Islands has somehow bogged down. A new Scheme was sub-
mitted to the Department of Technical, Co-operation (Colonial Office) in a
memorandum presented during the recent visit of the WINBAN delegation
to London, (July/August, 1963). It is hoped that the Scheme will be centralised
in St. Lucia under the control of WINBAN and the supervision of the Govern-
ment of St. Lucia. Mr. John Van Geest has most generously placed at the
disposal of WINBAN 30 acres of land and a fully equipped laboratory as his
contribution to the Research Programme.

London Delegation 1963:
The Association received notice from Geest Industries that on account of
large supplies arriving in the U.K. from Jamaica, the Green Boat Price was
to be lowered as from 10th July, 1963, by the equivalent of 1/2 per pound.
The Board had met on the 4th July, and having sensed the precarious condition
of the market unanimously passed a resolution urging that WINBAN should
send a delegation to London annually to investigate market conditions. The
President welcomed the idea and immediately took steps to implement the
suggestion. Accordingly, a delegation, comprising the directors of WINBAN
left for the U.K. on the 13th July, to investigate, among other things, the reason
for the unprecedented drop in the Green Boat Price in the middle of the sum-
mer. The visit was well timed. No sooner had the delegation arrived in the
U.K. than they were informed that Elders and Fyffes would be lowering the
Green Boat Price by a further two units, one cent less per pound again. The
delegation felt that their presence contributed greatly to the refusal of Geest
Industries to follow suit, and their maintaining the Green Boat Price at its
former level in spite of the reductions to Jamaica by Elders & Fyffes.
While the delegation was in the U.K., discussions were held with Geest
Industries Ltd., representatives of the Jamaica Banana Board and Elders &
Fyffes for the purpose of devising ways and means for controlling the supply
of fruit and of satisfactorily regulating the price. Opportunity was also taken
to hold exploratory talks with Geest Industries Ltd. about a new contract.
Tentative agreements between Geest and the delegation augur well for a con-
tract' that will be more advantageous to growers than the present one.

Retirement of Members of the Board:
Messrs. Hilary Da Silva, M.B.E., R. Minors and I. Sinson 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:
Our thanks are due to Messrs. Bovell & Skeete for completing the audit
so soon after the close of the financial year.

Thanks:
The Association owes a deep debt of gratitude to the President and directors
of WINBAN who have had a strenuous year in looking after the interests of
all banana growers in the Windward Islands. They have done their work
gratuitously, ungrudgingly and at great personal sacrifice. It is therefore
fitting that this meeting place on record its appreciation of the services ren-
dered by these gentlemen.

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, 1963, 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 included
a general review of the accounting procedures and such tests of accounting
records and other supporting evidence as we considered necessary.

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,
1963, and the results of its operations for the year ended on that date, accord-
ing to the best of our information and the explanations given to us and as
shown by the books of the Association.
