Description

  • Content Description: "This bulletin contains information and suggestions for persons desiring to sell or buy produce by parcel post. A great deal of marketing has been and is now being done by this method. Many persons, however, are only partially informed or perhaps entirely unaware of the requirements necessary to market farm produce successfully in this manner.... The increased cost of living has caused many persons to look to securing produce by parcel post as a means of relief, and some have been disappointed because of unsatisfactory results arising from various causes.... The present bulletin contains general information [with regard to prices, packaging, and quality standards]...which should be of use to those producers and consumers who are interested in the more general phases of the subject." -- title page
