TABER (HNS) Southern Alberta growers of vegetables for processing win seek higher returns for their crops this year through board negotiations with processors. The annual convention of the Alberta Vegetable (for processing) Marketing Board, held here recently, resolved that negotiated prices for their vegetables be commensurate with those of cereal and other alternative crops. Growers were advised that increases in the pea and corn acreages had already been indicated by the processors. The meeting, which drew growers and grower delegates from local districts east and west, heard reports of the year's activities by chairman Jim Tanner and other board members. Tom Krahn of the Brooks Research Station staff, speaking on the future of the processing vegetables industry, expressed optimism for vegetable production due to declining stocks of vegetables, increase in the per-capita consumption, and the expanding world population. At the convention's noon luncheon, Taber's mayor Arthur H. Avery said that agricultural industry is vital to the town, and extended the town's aid in promoting the vegetable processing and other new agri-industries in the area.
