Marketing California-Arizona lemons without marketing order shipment controls

Hoy Carman and Daniel Pick

Agribusiness, 1988, vol. 4, issue 3, 245-259

Abstract: The California-Arizona lemon industry, after a long history of using fresh market shipment controls, operated during 1985-1986 without using the weekly prorate provisions of its federal marketing order. This article compares the level and variability of weekly shipments and prices for the, 1985-1986 crop year with the previous nine years when fresh market prorates were used every week. Fresh market shipments increased during most of 1985-1986 and prices were below the level expected. Weekly shipments and prices were more variable during the year without prorate than during most of the preceding nine years.
