excellent job of pruning that most
of the growers are doing, accord
ing to J. R. Beck, county agent,
who has had occasion to visit many
of these orchards recently as well

bor costs and the increasing reali
zation on the part of the growers

and larger prunes, which can be ob
tained by the "thinning out" type
of pruning.
