Oregon Growers Announce
Market for Small Fruits
of '1922 . Season
It Is announced that the Oregon
Growers have already sold ali;or
practically all ot their 1922 pack
of gooseberries, -!- raspberries,
strawberries and cherries. Jar t
what this pack is to be. Is still a
matter for conjecture, but the
selling end of the association has
found the demand good enough
that it has already closed for this
large part of the total canned
product of the association.
: ' Not Primarily Packers
' The GrowWs, however, are not
primarily heavy packers. They
put up a considerable quantity of
canned goods as a saving proposi
tion when the fruit is not in con
dition to : ship, or there is too
much for the Immediate market,
or for various other local reasons.
The corporation has not yet In
vested heavily In expensive plants,
though it is understood that this
year may call for a heavier pro-1
ductlon of canned stuff than any
previous year. The' corporation
handles a vastly larger quantity
of dried and fresh fruits:
