dc.description.abstractThis publication brings together agricultural statistics for the five years of 1953 through 1957, and compares them with the 1950 Census of Agriculture. Information on population, retail food prices, transportation charges, military purchases, and farm p-rices is included. This compilation provides a fairly complete picture of the size, and certain changes and trends in Alaska's food producing industry. It may suggest adjustments needed to meet changing times, and will serve as a basis of comparison for future years.en_US
dc.description.sponsorshipMany persons have helped prepare this publication. First of all, thanks are due the farmers of the state who patiently answered many questions and filled out many forms. James Wilson, director of Alaska's Division of Agricu1ture, and his staff were equal partners in preparing the five original annual reports from which most of the information was drawn. The Matanuska Valley Farmers Cooperating Association contributed material on prices paid and received. General Frank E. Armstrong of the Alaska Command and h is staff, especially Leonard Jones ,and Mrs. William Mallory of the Purchasing and Contracting Office, gave much help and encouragement. The old Alaska Resource Development Board, the Soil Conservation Service, the Alaska Railroad, merchants and food price enumerators in several cities were also unstinting in their assistance.en_US
