Harvesting & Handling Section


No. 1 1 September 1965


WHY At various times there have been requests that we issue a newsletter
from this Section in order to improve channels of communication on all
matters of interest concerning the harvesting, packing and shipping of fresh
citrus fruit. Until now, we have not done so, trying to use the usual
trade journals within the Florida citrus industry. This has not been too
successful because of the limited space that such grower-oriented publi-
cations can devote to packinghouse matters and because of the problem of
deadlines when information needs to be communicated urgently.

Another problem is that the development of a considerable mailing
list would bean unreasonable load on our hard working secretarial office.
This is being avoided by offering to supply agencies such as the Florida
/ Fresh Citrus Shippers Association with copies to mail out to their member-
ships. Others who wish to receive this newsletter can do so by sending
in a supply of stamped and addressed envelopes.

WHAT Intended subject matter will include three principal areas;

1. Emergency information: as when a critical period of decay or peel
injury is observed to be developing.

2. Information about current research programs in which cooperators are
needed or in which "information to date" may be useful to the industry,
even though the program is not ready to be closed out and published
as a bulletin, circular or scientific paper.

3. Reviews of topics of general interest. This issue, for example,
includes a review on the current status of diphenyl in the Florida
Citrus Commission's decay control program.

Although the results of research at this.Experiment Station will
naturally provide most of our subject matter, we hope to provide infor.a-
tion on (or draw attention to) worthwhile developments from other sources.

WHEN In order to avoid the problem of having to say something when we
have nothing to say, we do not plan any definite schedule. The newsletter
will be issued when we have something to pass on that might be of value.
%Between whiles, we hope to be like Brer Rabbit and "lie low and say nuthin'l"
