Fruits and Vegetables: Enhanced Federal Efforts to Increase Consumption Could Yield Health Benefits for Americans

Description: A letter report issued by the General Accounting Office with an abstract that begins "Fruits and vegetables are a critical source of nutrients and other substances that help protect against chronic diseases. Yet fewer than one in four Americans consumes the 5 to 9 daily servings of fruits and vegetables recommended by the federal Dietary Guidelines for Americans. Fruit and vegetable consumption by the general public as a whole has increased by about half a serving under key federal nutritional policy, guidance, and educational programs, as shown by the national consumption data compiled by federal agencies. But key federal food assistance programs have had mixed effects on fruit and vegetables consumption, as shown by national consumption data. However, increasing fruit and vegetable consumption is not a primary focus of these programs, which are intended to reduce hunger and support agriculture. A number of actions the federal government could take to encourage more Americans to consume the recommended daily servings have been identified. These include expanding nutrition education efforts, such as the 5 A Day Program; modifying the special supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children to allow participants to choose from more of those fruits and vegetables; expanding the use of the Department of Defense Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Project in schools; and expanding farmers' market programs for food assistance participants. These options could require additional resources or redirecting resources from other programs."

Citrus-Fruit Improvement: How to Secure and Use Tree-Performance Records

Description: "Many California citrus growers have reported in recent years that they were securing lower yields of fruit per acre than in the earlier history of their industry. Complaint also has been made that an increasing proportion of the fruit of the leading commercial varieties of oranges and lemons was abnormal or 'off type' in size, form, color, smoothness of skin, or other important characteristics.... The results obtained in bud-selection experiments carried on during the past five years indicate that by top-working with buds from those having consistently good records for productiveness and quality the inferior or 'drone' trees of such varieties as Washington Navel and Valencia oranges can be made productive and profitable. This bulletin describes the methods that have been found effective and practicable in locating the desirable and undesirable trees in groves and for transforming the latter when found." -- p. 2
