Sees Future of Palestine Orange Industry Assured

The future of the orange-growing industry in Palestine is assured provided it is conducted along modern lines and the growers organize for mutual aid, is the opinion of Colonel Sawyer expressed in a letter to the “Hadar,” the journal of the orange-growers.

While supporting the plan of Harry Viteles, manager of the Palestine Economic Corporation’s cooperative bank, for growers’ associations along local cooperative lines, Colonel Sawyer doubts whether profits in the future will be equal to those of the present but orange cultivation is more than worthwhile even with a smaller profit, he feels.
