Growing Oranges. People on the Farm.
Department of Agriculture, Washington, DC. Office of Governmental and Public Affairs.
This booklet, one in a series about life on modern farms, describes the daily lives of three orange growers in Florida and one in California. Two of the Florida orange growers also have other jobs, one as manager of a citrus cooperative and the other as a citrus insurance salesman. The operations of orange groves, the care and picking of oranges, and how oranges are processed are explained in the booklet. Although the booklet focuses on orange growing, it includes discussion of major topics that are common to all of the booklets: (1) farming as a business, (2) the impact of technology on farming, (3) the increasing specialization in farming, (4) the role of government in agriculture, (5) the diversity in farming, (6) the interdependence between agriculture and the rest of the economy, and (7) the way of life of farmers and their families. The booklet is illustrated with black and white photographs. (KC)
