"The quantity of apples and pears handled from Auckland growers for the :1944 season was one of the largest for a number of years, amounting to 252,000, cases," said Mr. A. H. Honeyfield, director of the Internal Marketing Department in Auckland, at the Auckland provincial conference of the New Zealand Fruitgrowers' Federation, Ltd., to-day. The quantity from all districts distributed through the Auckland apple and pear section of the department totalled 800,000 cases, he said, of which 272,000 cases were disposed of to the U.S. Joint Purchasing Board, and 466,000 cases to the markets, the balance going to New Zealand Navy, Army and Air Force units. For the 1945 season, Auckland growers had forwarded 207,000 cases of apples and pears, while the estimated total New Zealand production for 1945 was 2,250,000 cases against a total production of 2,580,000 cases in 1944. Mr. Honeyfield said that in the assembling, storage and distribution for the Auckland district, the local marketing committee had worked in conjunction- with the department, and he hoped that the joint efforts had been to the satisfaction of the producers, the public, and the armed forces.
