Intricate problems remain Vegetable storage trial successful A million budget seen by Brooks school trustees VULCAN Bulk trials at the Alberta Horticultural Research Centre have proven that Alberta vegetables can be successfully stored over an extended period of time The trials have not solved many of the intricate and sometimes innocent problems that continually turn up To deal with these problems, the centre is changing its approach to vegetable storage research by adopting smaller scale trials to solve specific problems T. R. Krahn, head of horticultural crop development, says an important trial started last year is designed to evaluate filacell, refrigerated, refrigerated-bumidity added and root cellar storage. Data to be collected will indicate rate of weight loss from dehydration, general quality and suitability of each storage type for vegetable storage Vegetables being used are carrots, rutabagas and parsnips. Eventual results will also indicate the economic feasibility of each type of storage system. Vegetables are often stored in bulk piles with no definite idea of how deep specific types can be piled without causing serious bruising damage. Mr. Krahn says an attempt is being made at simulating various piling depths for carrots, rutabagas and onions, by using various piling weights of concrete block. These weights are placed on small quantities of each type of vegetable. "In this says Mr Krahn, "It is hoped to establish the extent of damage resulting from piling rutabaga, for instance, 12 or 14 feet deep, without actually practising this type of bulk storage BROOKS Brooks school district .trustees have proposed a 1974 school budget of an increase of from the 1973 budget of Trustees directed the secretary-treasurer to seek an extension from the department of education for submission of the budget It is expected to be approved at the Feb. 18 board meeting.
