promotion which began last week.
According to the Western New
York Apple Growers Newsletter of
January 24, for the first time in
1982, there were one billion bushels
of apples produced throughout the
world. The United States produces
about 1/5 of this volume. The apple
bowl of the world is Europe which
as a collection of countries,
produces about 1/2 of the total
world production. Thus, if the
United States is to compete, we
must do so aggressively in terms of
price, promotion, supply stability
and with a high quality product.
For Pennsylvania growers now in
the export market or anticipating
entering the market, keep these
facts in mind for a successful
