An area of research in agricultural economics hitherto largely neglected was introducedwith the recent publication of Trade in Horticultural Specialties, 1 whichwas issued by the Bureau of Agricultural Economics last April. The data in thisstatistical compendium constitute the basis for further research in this field. Thatthe industry is of economic importance may be seen in the fact that at midcentury thevalue of sales and inventory of horticultural specialty goods and services in thiscountry exceeded $1.5 billion. The labor force of the industry was more than a quartermillion persons, with a payroll of more than $300 million. Cash receipts from horticulturalspecialties in 1952 surpassed those of such outstanding farm products aspotatoes, apples, oranges, sugar beets and cane, wool, turkeys, and sheep and lambs.Some of the aspects of economic research in the horticultural specialties were consideredat a workshop conducted last summer by the Foundation for Floriculture, incooperation with BAE. In the accompanying paper Mr. Fossum follows up with anoutline of the principal areas of economic investigation in this fertile field.
