Processors Most Of State's Lima Bean Crop Canners and freezers now buy approximately 85 per cent of Maryland's lima bean production compared with 72 per cent in the 1940's. In terms of the 1951 crop, this increase meant, according to TJ. S. Department of Agriculture crop reports, that 3,170 of the 3.7H tons of llmas grown in the Free State were sold to processors. "An increase in sales to processors as fresh market purchases drop accounts for the growing Importance of the canning and freezing markets," said Roy Portier, agronomist for American Can Compariy, who explained that in contrast with former days farmers now can plant •heir crops with the assurance that a ready market—consisting of canned food buyers—is waiting for their j product. "Thanks to modern canning methods, this ready market consists of consumers across the na-' lion in all seasons of the year," the can-making firm's agronomist said. I "Thus canning has strengthened and expanded Maryland's economy by I attracting millions of outside dollars into the state." The state's shipment of llmas to the canning and freezing market jumped 43 per cent over the average of 2,210 tons a year lor the 1940s while fresh market purchases have dropped 34 per cent from the 832- ton average during the decade.
