ACKNOWLEDGEMENT


We want to express our appreciation to each Federal and
State Agency, private organization and persons who has gener-
ously contributed data to this summary on Florida Agriculture.

We are grateful for the assistance given us by the Flor-
ida Fruit and Vegetable Association; Florida Citrus Mutual;
Florida Citrus Exchange; Florida Canners Association; Federal-
State Vegetable Market News Services; Miss Dena Snodgrass- Re-
search Analyst, Florida State Chamber of Commerce; Statistical
Department of the Florida State Citrus Inspection Service; Fed-
eral-State Vegetable Inspection Service; Florida State Plant
Board; Florida Poultry-Egg Inspection Service; USDA Fruit and
Vegetable Branch-Transportation Service; USDI Tobacco Market
News Service; USDA-Florida Agricultural Stabilization and Con-
servation Committee, USDA-Crop Reporting Board, Washington;
Fruit Growers Express; Florida Agricultural Experiment Stations
and Extension Service; Florida Gladiolus Growers Association
and other well informed sources.

Special acknowledgement is extended to the USDA.-Crop Re-
porting and Livestock Service in Orlando. This group has pro-
vided us a considerable quantity of timely and excellent sta-
tistical information.

The Bureau staff- technical, clerical and mailing room
personnel- has been most cooperative in preparing this lengthy
and tedious summary throughout the summer and fall months.

Commissioner L. Neill Rhodes deep and sincere interest in
the State's Agricultural problems has been an inspiration for
this publication which we hope is a creditable contribution to
Florida Agriculture. It is our desire that this report will
have a leveling and stabilizing influence in minimizing exag-
gerations and counteracting unfound rumors.




















DEFINITIONS



Definitions generally used throughout this report follow:

Value of production is computed by applying the season average
price received by growers for quantities sold from a particular
crop or during the marketing season, depending on the commodity, to
the total quantities produced. Similar ly, the value of sales is
the unit price applied to the quantity sold from a particular crop
or during the marketing season, depending on the commodity.

Gross Income: Realized gross farm income includes (a) cash
receipts from farm marketing, (b) value of farm products consumed
in farm households, (c) rental value of farm dwellings, and (d)
government payments to farmers. Total gross income is the realized
gross income plus or minus the value of the net change in farm
inventories of crops and livestock.

Cash receipts from farm marketing consist of total money
received from the sale of farm products, together with net receipts
from Commodity Credit Corporation loans.

Farm value, as applied to crops in the various tables, is
derived by multiplying production by the estimated season average
price received by farmers for that portion of the commodity
actually sold. The term is used in the inventory tables on live-
stock and poultry to mean value of the number of head on farms on
January 1. It is derived by multiplying the number of head by an
estimated value per head as of that date.

F.O.B. value Fresh citrus is the price on an F.O.B. basis
or its equivalent, less selling charges, while process citrus is
the price eqi ivalent at the packing house door. Note citrus
analysis, page 22. All prices used on truck crops are on an.F.O.B.
basis or its equivalent, less selling charges. In the case of some
commodities which are sold in units other than the one listed,
these units are converted into the equivalent of the ones used.






FOREWORD


Among the duties of the State Marketing Commissioner as prescribed
by law are these: "to receive and compile reports on all fruits, vegetables
and other farm products as are prown in the state ..... to keep and compile
a statement of all shipments moving out of the state,-that through this
information the farmers and producers can be kent posted as to exact con-
ditions existing in the state, and the several markets of the country..."

It is our purpose to provide more service than the law requires, of
which the Fruit and Veget3ble Renort for the 195L-55 season is an example.
It is more difficult to orenare each season a better marketing summary
than the preceding one. However, in this annual report we have endeavored
to "lay previous ones in the shade" and "outdo the undoable".

Statistics and research are cornerstones of modern commercial enter-
orise. No segment of industry has greater need for factual statistics
than agriculture. The small farmer least of all has facilities for com-
pilation of such data. Certainly our Production, Transportation and Mar-
keting Analysis Annuals help in filling that essential requirement.

Surplus agricultural production has become one of our major national
concerns. The problem would be far greater if every farmer produced only
enough to feed his family,- for then everyone would farm or starve. Not
only today's civilization but that of China, Egypt, Rome and all others of
the past have been predicated and--denendent upon the farmer producing more
than he consumes.

In 1820 each of the 2.4 million farm workers produced enough for
himself and more than 3 other persons. In 1920 each of the 13.h million
farm workers produced enough food, fiber and tobacco to supply himself and
more than 7 additional persons. In 1953 farm employment had dropped to
8.6 million workers, but each produced enough for his support and almost
17 extra consumers.

Through these periods and the centuries, production and prices
have not run parallel, but in general have tended to move in opposite
directions. A small production thrust uDon the market in short time can
create temporary surplus with low prices; yet a much greater production
under orderly movement over a longer period can better balance sunplies
which bring higher prices. Current, official statistics are indispensable
in serving instead of surolusing market demand. Released in summarial
form the data are of equaloinpdrt for1gnalyzinr total seasonal volume as
to method of movement, value of packs and other basic factors, as future
marketing procedures are considered.

Our Market News Specialist, Mr. E.F. Scarborough, is the architect
and engineer, "chief cook and bottle washer" of this summary. He and Bureal
associate specialists have in this our 1954-55 Report given the truth, the
numerous tabulations indicating just about the whole truth, and of this I
am positive: Nothing but the truth. If farmers and producers refer to
and use the report frequently, like the law says, they "can be kept posted..."

1954-55
ANNUAL FRUIT AND VEGETA31E REPORT

By: Elmo F. Scarborough, Market News Specialist

SU LTARY i LVIEW-
1iews e-lease

Florida fruits and vegetables grossed the producers some 4i41,000,000 dur-
ing the 1954-55 season compared to .A02,000,000 for the 1953-54 season. This is a
noteworthy gain in gross value of these crops of W39,000,000 over the two-year
period. Vegetables accounted for nuch of the increase in value, Production of many
vegetables during the 1954-55 season was remarkably high, Prices were generally
satisfactory and showed a slight margin of profit- The citrus crop of 127,320,000
boxes was the second highest on record. Processor utilization accounted for 61 per-
cent of the crop with the remaining 39 percent moving through fresh channels. The
total box processor utilization of raw fruit was down materially, however, the
extremely high yield resulted in nearly the same volume of finished products as a
year ago. There was an excellent consumer demand for frozen orange concentrate and
a record high consumption. Miscellaneous fruits showed a sharp increase in gross
value. This was attributed to the extremely high watermelon prices prior to mid-June.

CITRUS PROCESSORS' PRICE AVERAG;lD HIGHER
Citrus showed a gross value of ,245,805,000 in 1954-55 compared to
)2$4,965,000 in 1953-54. The crop was the second largest on record and accounted
for 128,300,000 boxes of fruits in contrast to the peak production season of 1953-54,
when 138,200,000 boxes were marketed. Processors' prices to producers for all
citrus were higher and averaged *1.41 per box, or 110 more than the previous year.
The overall "per box" price in 1954-55 was .41,93, which was 6 cents more
than in 1953-54. On a "per box" basis a few cents seem trivial but on consideration
of the size of the '54-55 crop these accumulated cents accounted for more than seven
and half million dollars of increase in the gross value on a box-for-box comparison
with the previous season.

VEGETABLES
Vegetables held an exceptionally bright spot in the State's agricultural
picture. The gross value of vegetables was $173,722,000 in 195-55 compared to
*$131,550,000 in 1953-54. This is approximately a 50 percent increase over a ten-
year period beginning in 1945-46, when vegetables grossed only pll6,247,000.
Acreage and yield per acre for the major Florida vegetable crops has moved upward
during the past ten years.
Economically most of the good things that could happen to the Florida veg-
etable industry did occur during the 1954-55 season: (1) Producers having encoun-
tered a rather poor marketing year in 1953-54 reduced their acreage slightly in
1954-55. (2) Earlier than usual frosts in the North during the fall proved
considerably injurious to northern commercial vegetables thereby creating an early
demand for Florida crops. The severe frost in late March of 1955 literally
destroyed early plantings of truck crops and the blossoms of tree fruits and nuts
throughout the East, Midwest and South. This, of course, resulted in a later but a
very active spring marketing season in Florida. (3) The State's weather conditions
were usually favorable to most vegetables in Central and South Florida. The good
weather conditions reflected increased yields. Tomatoes showed a climb in yield of
40 percent over the previous season. Celery went up 10 percent. Some vegetables
increased slightly while others had yields comparable to their peak of the previous
year. (4) The employment situation was favorable throughout the country. Purchas-
ing power of the public was good and business reports indicated that consumers spent
freely for their wants as well as their needs,




cage 2
MISCtLA!ANEOUS FRUITS
Miscellaneous fruits include semi-tropical fruits such as avocados, limes,
mangoes, melons of various kinds, and strawberries. This group of fruits grossed
$20,408,200 from some 117,950 acres in 1954-55 contrasted to a gross value of
15,419,000 from 117,850 acres in 1953-54o The gross value of watermelons showed an
increase of 65 percent in 1954-55 over that of the previous year. The value of
strawberries increased 30 percent; avocados were up 20 percent; while limes were
down sharply.

THE 1954-55 ANNUAL REPORT
W4e are constantly trying to provide more data in a simplified accessible
form. The entire 1954-55 Annual Report has been rearranged and new tables added
which we hope will ,ive greater flexibility in its use. Those which may be of
particular interest to you are: Disposition of Florida Fruits and Vegetables in
1954-55; The Field Crops Section, pages 100-111, including historical information on
acreage, production, and value of such crops as cotton,; feeds and hays, tobacco and
tree nuts. Pages 114-115 show a table on the Florida Shell Egg Consumption. Pages
123-131 show a new series of statistical data on cattle and hogs. Whenever possible
complete details on individual counties have been shown,

TRANSPORTATION COMMENTS
During the 1954-55 season we shipped 242,932 carloads of fruits and veg-
etables from Florida. Of these, there were 95,938 carloads shipped by freight,
6,168 carloads shipped by railway express, 1,604 carloads by boat, and the equiv-
alent of 139,222 carloads by truck. Transportation by truck accounted for 57 per-
cent of the carlot shipments, while freight represented 39 percent of the carlot
volume, with 4 percent of the produce being shipped by other means of transportation.
The percentage of the leading commodities shipped last season which were routed

FLORIIDA AGRICULTURAL AID THE NATIONAL ECONOMIC GROWTH
Good farm planning is essential in our fast moving National economy when
all segments of the agricultural industry must respond to dominant forces of national
growth which have characterized the postwar period. As growth implies change,




Page 3
Florida agricultural activity must become adapted to continuous shifts in consumer
demand, in government expenditures, and in business investments. The Monthly
Business Review, September 1955, issued by the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis
states that "The ten years which have passed since World W'ar II are evidence of the
remarkable flexibility and vitality of the American economy...Personal consumption
expenditures in the nation increased from -.165 billion in mid-1947 to an annual rate
of .*250 billion in mid-summer of 1955...Among the most striking and unexpected
developments of the last decade has been the sharp and sustained rise in the birth
rate, adding 25 million citizens to the United States population,..New workers
attracted by crowing industry, no matter what facilities they leave behind them need
new housing, school: for their children, stores for their shopping, and hosts of
other new consumer services...Government purchases of gooas and services have
advanced from 329 billion in 1947 to 377 billion in 195.. .Expenditures for private
domestic inve.stmnt moved from )30 billion in 1947 to an annual rate of .60 billion
in mid-Tl5... The broad postwar upsurge in economic activity also encouraged the
construction of ne- onusiness plants which doubled from ;5 billion in 1947 to an
annual rate of ?10 billion in nid-1955.. .In the vast free trade market of the
national economy, -uch local activity is therefore geared to 'export' local products
whose production in turn depends on a wide variety of local 'imports' from other
parts of the country."
Florida is truly an export-import state, geared to exporting most of its
fruits and vegetables, and depending on its scenic coast, inland lakes, tourist
accommodations and weather to attract the consumer who is looking for ways to spend
a larger share of his income on "luxuries". Some statisticians break down Florida
economy into three general classes of income: one-third from agriculture, one-third
from tourism, and one-third from manufactured products.
The 1955-56 Florida Agricultural Outlook Committee states that "A favor-
able demand outlook is of particular interest to Florida because she produces about
87 percent of the grapefruit, 85 percent of the oranges, 90 percent of the snap and
lima beans, 90 percent of the celery, 90 percent of the green corn, and 85 percent
of the cucumbers, 63 percent of the tomatoes, and a substantial part of some other
crops grown for the winter market."
The State's growth in agricultural gross value from 1946-47 to 1954-55
seasons shows that this industry has advanced from $h03 million per season to $673
million per season, a 68 percent increase over that period. A breakdown of
Florida's principal agricultural commodities, domestic, intrastate and export,
those of Fruits and Vegetables, shows that citrus has increased from $147 million
to .P246 million, vegetables from $92 million to 4174 million, miscellaneous fruits
from $11 million to 421 million. Other agricultural items Vhich are consumed
mainly within the state also have shown growth. Livestock advanced from $41 million
to *58 million. Dairy and Poultry Products from $51 million to $79 million, and
Field Crops from .49 million to $78 million.
Florida agriculture has enjoyed an economic growth somewhat similar to
that occurring throughout the nation. However, our State's agricultural leaders
and their organizations must always be aware that increased gross values do not
necessarily mean that farmers are getting an increase in net returns. There are
many businesses that benefit through the farmer and his land, such as the fertili-
zer, container, gasoline, electric, farm implement, seed, spray, telephone and
transportation companies, labor forces and brokers. A healthy farm operation can
quickly influence many other businesses in a community by its favorable economy.
We hope that the statistics presented in this Annual Report will help in serving the
agricultural needs of the future as well as present an analysis of the agricul-
tural activities of the past.

OUTLOOK FOR DEMAND FOR FLORIDA FARM PRODUCTS
Season of 1955-56


Economic activity is likely to be maintained in coming months at or above recent high rates.

Employment and income prospects indicate they will hold at high levels. Planned increases in business

investment and prospects for a slight rise in combined spending by Federal, State and local Governments

together with record consumer incomes point to some further increase in economic activity and a high

level of demand for food and other farm products.

This favorable demand outlook is of particular interest to Florida because she produces about 87

percent of the grapefruit, 85 percent of the oranges, 90 percent of the snap and lima beans, 50 percent

of the celery, 90 percent of the green corn, 85 percent of the cucumbers, 63 percent of the tomatoes, and

a substantial part of some other crops grown for the winter market.

Notes The difference between gross national product and consumer expenditures for goods and services is

made up of gross private investment, government purchases of goods and services, and net foreign invest-

ments. The difference between personal disposable income and consumer expenditures for goods and services

is personal savings.

Farm Priops Costs and Parity
(From the June 24, 1955 U.S.D.A. "Demand and Price Situation")

The index of prices received by farmers so far this year has held relatively steady around 5 percent

below a year ago.

The prices paid index during the first 5 months of this year averaged 283, the same as in the

corresponding period of 1954. The parity ratio has held around 87 so far this year compared with 91 in

January-day 1954.

For the future the recent trends indicated in table below are likely to continue.

for interest and grove taxes, but after deducting for cost of production and marketing
** 550,000 boxes Oranges, 160,000 boxes Grapefruit, and 270,000 boxes Tangerines abandoned for economic reasons not included.


1i Trucked out shipment figures were based on inspections certified for'interstate movement.

2s Processing fruit represents average gross price at processor's door. Processing fruit includes that for canning and concentrat-
ing, and the Net price is the Gross less production, picking, hauling, and other marketing charges.

38 Figures for Consumed in Florida are rough estimates based on population, prices, eto Any person who does not approve this home
consumption estimate may make his own estimate, but this volume, which is probably underestimated, has to be counted. This
locally consumed volume of citrus includes packed, unpacked, inspected, and uninspected. No thorough survey of local or
Florida consumption of fresh citrus has ever been made.

The above report and that on page 50 covers the vegetable and miscellaneous fruit acreage
reported by the USDA Florida Crop Reporting Service in Orlando. End of official report.



There are also a number of fruits and vegetables for which there is no official report for
acreage.

The Market News Specialist of the State Marketing Bureau undertakes to make some rough
estimates of these unreported commodities.

* Radishes Topped.
** Miscellaneous Vegetables include broccoli, okra,celery-cabbage, onions, carrots, turnips, mustard,
beets, collards, parsley, spinach, watercress, English peas. Approximately 80 percent of the
miscellaneous vegetables were shipped from Florida while about 20 percent were consumed in the State.

Having made these estimates, some without enough basic data on which to make as good an estimate
as we desire, we hope no one disagrees with us about them unless they have data which could help us with
estimates next year. These estimates are made in order to complete the acreage, yield, production and
value picture. We have always tried to do that even if rough estimates are necessary.

The Weekly Totals differ from Monthly Totals due partly to fractional amounts.

j Truck Shipments probably include some imports from W. Indies. See Page 87 for Florida truck movement
of West Indies imports- Intrastate and Interstate. Rail imports through Florida were deducted from
the sum of the total imports leaving the quantities of the imported products which were either sold
within the state or were moved out by motor truck. It is assumed that the most volume of West Indies
imported produce moved out of Florida. The reader may make his own deduction to the Florida Truck
Shipments.

records supplied the Florida State Marketing Bureau by the Florida Road Guard Stations. The
project was undertaken and successfully carries on inder an agreement between the Fruit and
Vegetable Branch, U.S. Department of Agriculture, and the Florida State Department of Agri-
culture.

SPECIAL NOTE: The Road 'Guard Stations are strategically located at bridges located on the St. Mary s
River and the Suwannee River. Substantially all of the fruits and vegetables in Florida are
produced south and east of these river crossings. The State fMarketing Bureau estimated that
3430 carloads of Florida watermelons west of the Suwannee River moved to other States by truck;
1930 were estimated for June and 1500 for July.
