Part VIII of a series of reports on the effects of packing-house equipment, plant layout, and work methods on efficiency and costs.

A subsequent part in this serics will deal with the sampling system the second system used in California fruit-packing and processing houses to account to growers for products received. This part will also compare plant costs under the separate-lot and sampling systems to determine the particular method most economical under varying conditions
