Summary
"The exercise of proper care and the use of suitable standards in the preparation of the potato crop for the market would result in greater profit to growers and in the partial elimination of the enormous waste which now occurs. The bulletin points out proper methods in use during the harvesting and handling of the crop and emphasizes the importance of treater care as well as the use of suitable, uniform and fixed standard grades and containers. Market demands and preferences should be heeded. Dealers and consumers do not desire badly cut, mashed, frosted, and decayed potatoes or those damage by sunburn, blight, dry rot or in excess of scab or second growth. Markets frequently are overloaded, prices, seriously affected and unnecessary losses sustained by growers because of the shipment of such unsatisfactory stock. The requirement for standard grades are discussed and the advantages of suitable sizing machines, shipping packages, and proper car-loading methods are emphasized. Methods of inspection by cooperative marketing associations to improve the quality of their output are described. The various outlets open to growers through which to dispose of their potatoes are outlined, and suggestion are given for making of the bill of lading." -- p. [2]
