This article is the second section of Part VI of a series of reports of studies on the effects of packing-house equipment, plant layout, and work methods on efficiency and costs. These studies have been made cooperatively by the University of California Giannini Foundation of Agricultural Economics, and the Bureau of Agricultural Economics, United States Department of Agriculture, under the authority of the Research and Marketing Act.
Other reports in this series compare house operations, methods, equipment, and arrangements. The comparisons may be used to establish standards for efficient and low-cost operation. With minor modifications, the results of these studies can be applied to many of the problem of packing and processing other fruits and vegetables
