Fruits and Vegetables
Average re ta il prices of fru its and vegetables, fresh and processed combined, rose
7.4 percent between December 1960 and December 1963. (See table 1.) This advance repre­
sented almost one-third of the increase in the 10 years from December 1953 to December 1963.
During 1961, prices declined 2.3 percent due to ample supplies of most fru its and some vege­
tables, and rose only fractionally in 1962. The largest change in year-to-year prices, an
advance of 9.6 percent, occurred in 1963, reflecting significant shortages in supplies of
citrus fru its and reductions in most of the f a ll vegetable crops (chart 4).

The upward trend in re ta il prices of fru its and vegetables during the past decade has
been influenced to some extent by the rise in marketing costs. The U.S. Department of
Agriculture estimates that the charges for marketing farm-originated foods have increased
at a rate of about 2 percent annually from 1953 to 1963. 11/ Sharper fluctuations in price
movements have occurred from year to year, however, as the av ailability of supplies has been
affected by favorable or less than favorable growing conditions.
Average re ta il prices of fresh fru its and vegetables increased 7.3 percent from
December 1960 to December 1963. During 1961, prices declined by 4.6 percent, chiefly as a
result of lower prices for potatoes and tomatoes. A moderate (2.8 percent) increase was
recorded in 1962 as the majority of the items in the group experienced price rise s. In
1963, higher prices for most fru it items, with particularly sharp increases for citrus
products, resulted in a 9.4-percent rise for the group.
Fresh F ru its. Average re ta il prices of fresh fru its increased 8.3 percent over the
3-year period, with the largest yearly increase, 7.4 percent, occurring in 1963. Generally,
1961 and 1962 were years of favorable growing conditions, adequate supplies and moderate
price increases. In 1963, the effects of adverse weather on some fru it crops reversed the
relatively stable supply and price situation of the 2 previous years.
Retail prices of apples declined 9.7 percent by late 1961, remained at a low level
until late 1962, and by December 1963 averaged 1.4 percent above the December 1960 level.
Curtailed supplies from 1960 crops, reduced by unfavorable weather, contributed to higher
prices during the fir s t 9 months of 1961. As a result of increased apple production in
1961, re ta il prices during the late fa ll of 1961 and the f ir s t 10 months of 1962 were
somewhat below the levels of the previous year. Prices began rising again in November 1962,
and apples remained high throughout a ll of 1963. The July 1963 average price (52.5 percent
above the 1957-59 average) was the highest recorded during the 3-year period. Slightly
smaller crops in both 1962 and 1963 combined with strong demand for apples due to high
prices for many competing fru its contributed to the increase in 1963 prices.
Banana prices averaged nearly 6 percent lower over the 3-year period with the major
decline (4.1 percent) occurring in 1963. The slight downward trend in banana prices during
1962 was interrupted temporarily by the anticipation of possible shortages due to the
December 23 strike of dockworkers at Eastern and Gulf ports. Retail prices of bananas
increased 11.8 percent in the month from December 1962 to January 1963. At the conclusion
of the strik e, prices declined and remained at a lower level throughout most of 1963.
Retail prices of fresh oranges increased moderately in 1961, declined somewhat in
1962, and then rose sharply in 1963 for a 3-year increase of 13 percent by December 1963.
Substantial losses from Hurricane Donna in September 1960 and a light production of navel
oranges in California limited supplies through most of 1961. Consequently, orange prices
for most of that year were somewhat above those of a year earlier. In early December 1962,
the prospect of a record crop of Florida oranges exerted downward pressure on the re ta il
market prices. This was n ullified, however, by a k illin g freeze which struck Florida groves
during the 11th to 14th of the month. In that brief period, the supply situation for fresh
oranges changed from abundance to extreme shortage. In addition, a large proportion of the
salvageable fruit was diverted from the fresh market to processors for use in frozen orange
concentrate. As a result of the shortage, prices jumped sharply in early 1963 and remained
considerably above comparable 1962 periods. By December 1963, prices had climbed nearly
14 percent above average prices in December 1962.

During the late spring months of 1961, re ta il prices of grapefruit were below year
earlier levels. Delayed maturity of a sligh tly larger 1960-61 crop resulted in heavier
supplies in the latter part of the crop year, and contributed to a 6-percent decline in
price level over the year. Following their usual seasonal pattern during 1962, grapefruit
prices averaged sligh tly higher for the year. The December Florida freeze extensively
damaged the 1962-63 crop, causing re ta il prices to reach extremely high levels. The August
1963 average price was the highest recorded since 1953 (81.4 percent above the 1957-59
average). As new crop supplies became available, monthly prices declined somewhat, but
remained at levels considerably above comparable periods in 1962. Average prices rose
17 percent from December 1962 to December 1963.
Lemon prices had dropped 13.2 percent by the end of 1961 as supplies from a sharply
increased new crop became available in December. Because of damage to Arizona groves in
the winter of 1961, prices in December 1962 rose to the highest level for that month in
9 years. By December 1963, plentiful new crop supplies caused a drop in prices of 1.5
percent below the December 1960 level.
Average prices of peaches, strawberries, grapes, and watermelons moved upward during
the 3-year period. Advances ranged from 1.6 percent for watermelons to 24.3 percent for
strawberries. Unfavorable weather during 1963 reduced the volume of these fru its shipped
to fresh markets.
Fresh Vegetables. A near record production of potatoes and large supplies of late
f a ll tomatoes contributed to a 7.8-percent decline in the re ta il prices of fresh vegetables
during 1961. From March through December 1962, prices averaged above year earlier levels
due to sligh tly smaller total supplies. Production was curtailed by adverse weather,
in the winter and spring vegetable-growing areas, and a general reduction in acreage of
fa ll crops. Production of fresh vegetables for f a ll marketing in 1963 dropped 8 percent
below the 1962 level. As a resu lt, average prices for the group rose nearly 12 percent
for the year and 6.1 percent for the 3-year period.
Significantly larger supplies of potatoes from the late summer and fa ll crops in 1961
pushed re ta il prices down 16.5 percent from December 1960 to December 1961. With smaller
supplies available in 1962, as a result of production decreases in summer and fa ll crops,
prices advanced sharply by mid-year and increased 8.2 percent by December. Although potato
supplies during the latter part of 1963 were about equal to the trade demands, prices rose
4.4 percent over the year to a level which was s t i l l 5.7 percent below the December 1960
level.
Retail prices of fresh tomatoes fluctuated widely according to av ailability during
the 3-year period. Sharp increases in Florida's late f a ll production in 1961 caused a
drop of nearly 30 percent in tomato prices from the high levels of December 1960. Cold
weather during the f ir s t 3 months of 1962 curtailed yields from reduced acreage in winter
and early spring production areas, and contributed to higher prices during the f ir s t half
of the year. Late f a ll production in 1962 was about the same as a year earlier but by
December, tomato prices had advanced about 8 percent above the unusually low level of
December 1961. Prices rose sharply again in early 1963, following the December and January
freeze damage to the Florida winter crop. Heavy Mexican imports, however, supplemented
available domestic supplies, and prices from April through June averaged below year earlier
levels. By December 1963, prices of tomatoes were substantially (25.7 percent) above 1962
levels, reflecting below average fa ll production and weather damage to Florida plantings.
Heavy supplies of lettuce, combined with increased production of other salad greens,
exerted downward pressure on re ta il prices during most of 1961. Freezing weather in January
1962 heavily damaged lettuce crops in Texas and California, the sources of about threequarters of winter tonnage, causing a rise in prices during the spring months. Materially
smaller supplies throughout most of the year resulted in prices that were substantially




7

above year earlier levels through November 1962. By December, moderately increased Florida
supplies brought lettuce prices temporarily down below the level of December 1961. Retail
prices moved up in February 1963, in July, and again in the fa ll due to curtailed yields
caused by unfavorable weather and some reductions in acreage. December 1963 lettuce prices
were almost 36 percent above the December 1960 level.
Prices of green beans, like those for lettuce and other tender crops, fluctuate widely
with the av ailability of supplies from areas producing winter and early spring crops. With
production close to 1960 to ta ls, prices of green beans in December 1961 averaged only slig h t­
ly above the December 1960 level. Early spring production in 1962 was curtailed considerably
by cold weather in Arizona, Texas, and California; and high winds, freezing temperatures, and
lack of rain in Florida. As unfavorable growing conditions continued during both the early
and late fa ll of 1963 in Florida, smaller supplies of green beans caused prices to average
above year-earlier levels in a ll but 2 months of the year. Retail prices advanced 11 percent
during the year to a level about 22 percent above the relatively low December 1960 prices.
Celery prices followed a trend similar to that for lettuce prices over the 3-year period,
with somewhat narrower fluctuations. Adequate supplies through September 1961 combined with
heavy production of competing greens caused prices to f a ll below the 1960 level in 8 of the
f ir s t 9 months. By December 1961, prices were nearly 13 percent above the level of a year
e arlier, due to a much smaller late f a ll crop. Continued small supplies of celery from
reduced acreage and yield during the f ir s t 9 months of 1962 contributed to prices which were
materially above the comparable period in 1961. By the end of 1962, increases in the late
f a ll celery crop caused prices to drop 8.4 percent below the December 1961 level. Increased
supplies during most of 1963 resulted in re ta il prices below those of 1962. Unfavorable
December weather reduced celery shipments from Florida and advanced prices 4.5 percent above
the December 1962 level, and nearly 8 percent above the level of 3 years earlier.
Reduced crops of onions in 1961 caused prices to rise to a December level more than 20
percent above the comparatively low prices of December I960. During the f ir s t 6 months in
1962, onion prices advanced even further, reflecting the reductions in storage holdings for
the 1962 marketing year and freeze damage to the early spring crop in Texas. An improved
supply situation in the second half of 1962 and f ir s t half of 1963 caused prices to decline
well below comparable periods in 1961-62. During the latter half of 1963, onion prices
moved upward as available supplies were curtailed by lower yields from the late summer crops.
Strong export and domestic demands added to price pressures. By December 1963, onion prices
were more than 16 percent above year-earlier levels and 33 percent above the levels of
December I960.
Cabbage prices followed a pattern similar to that for green bean prices during the 3
years, with a sligh t advance each year for a total rise of about 8 percent during the 3-year
period. Prices of carrots, one of the more hardy vegetables, varied sligh tly from year to
year for a net increase of le ss than 2 percent over the 3-year period. Sweet-potato prices,
fluctuating with the av ailability of supplies, were up in 1961, down in 1962, and up again
by late 1963 to a level less than 4 percent above 3-year earlier prices.
Processed Fruits and Vegetables. Contrasted with the period trends in fresh produce
prices, average re ta il prices of frozen fru its and vegetables rose slightly by December 1961,
declined during 1962, and increased sharply during 1963t ending the year almost 25 percent
above the low levels of a year earlier. Changes in the average prices of frozen orange
concentrate were chiefly responsible for the group movement during the 3-year period. A
smaller carryover in stocks of frozen concentrate resulted in a 3.9-percent price increase
during 1961, while a record pack in 1962 contributed to the 7.6 percent price decline over
the year. In December 1962, a severe Florida freeze destroyed both fru it and trees. The
yield from salvageable oranges was sharply reduced, resulting in the smallest pack in a




8

decade.

Prices of frozen strawberries, peas, and green beans moved within narrow ranges for most
of the 3-year period, with advances of 1 to 2 percent. Frozen lemonade concentrate prices
moved upward substantially during 1963 for a net increase of 9*2 percent for the 3-year per­
iod. The rise in prices reflected reductions in the 1962-63 California lemon crop and unusu­
ally heavy exports in the late summer and early f a ll of 1963. Prices of frozen french fried
potatoes declined in each of the 3 years, for a net decrease of more than 8 percent as produc­
tion increased more than the rise in demand during the period.
Prices of canned fru its and vegetables followed similar trends but fluctuated less than
those for frozen fru its and vegetables, rising 7.1 percent from December 1960 through Decem­
ber 1963. Group advances and declines were due largely to fluctuations in the prices of
canned orange juice.
Canned orange juice prices rose almost 38 percent over the 3-year period. A considerably
smaller than average pack in the 1960-61 season, as processors emphasized frozen orange juice
concentrate, led to higher re ta il prices through 1961. Because of a large carryover and a
substantial increase in the following season's pack, prices declined almost 18 percent in
1962. After the December 1962 freeze in Florida, canned orange juice prices rose nearly 50
percent during 1963, pressured by strong demand for the extremely short stocks. The shortage
of citrus fru its also affected prices of other fru its and ju ices. Prices of pineapple juice
fluctuated within a narrow range from December 1960 through May 1963 and then rose sharply,
for a net increase of over 13 percent for the 3-year period. The rise during the la st half
of 1963 reflected increased demand for other than citrus juices resulting from the short
supplies and high prices of both fresh and processed citrus fru its. Packs of canned peaches
and fruit cocktail set new records each year from 1959 through 1962. As a resu lt, prices
dropped to their lowest levels in more than a decade. By November 1962, peach prices had
Reclined almost 5 percent below the level of December 1960. Fruit cocktail prices fe ll 7
percent from December 1960 to a 3-year low point in March 1963. Prices of both items rose
throughout the remainder of the 3-year period, reflecting in part the increased demand stem­
ming from the shortage of citrus fru its, and in part the reduction in supplies of canned
peaches and fru it cocktail.
Production of most vegetable crops for processing increased each year from 1960 through
1962. Because heavy supplies had depressed prices of canned vegetables, substantial reduc­
tions were made in the acreage planted for processing crops in 1963, and packs of most vege­
tables in the 1963 season were somewhat below the 1962 levels. Supplies of canned peas for
the years 1960 through 1963 were substantially below the average volume of the 1950's.
Despite sligh tly larger packs in 1961 and 1962, supplies were s t i l l below normal trade needs
and prices rose almost 6 percent during the 3-year period. Canned tomato prices were re la­
tively steady from December 1960 through September 1963. Influenced by a 7-percent smaller
pack in 1963, prices rose through the la st quarter of 1963 for a net increase of 2.6 percent
in the 3 years. Prices of canned tomato juice reached a peak in July 1961 almost 3 percent
above the December 1960 level, and fluctuated generally downward through 1963, ending the
period 1.5 percent below the level of December I960. In contrast to the smaller increases
in prices of peas and tomatoes, prices of canned corn rose over 5 percent from December 1960
through September 1961, influenced by dwindling supplies from the below-average 1960 pack.
A record pack in 1961 followed by smaller but s t i l l above-average packs in 1962 and 1963
caused prices to decline gradually through December 1963 to a level 10 percent below their
September 1961 peak.
Dried fru it and vegetable prices in December 1963 averaged nearly 2 percent above
December 1960 levels. A rise of 6 percent in dried bean prices more than offset a small
decline in dried prune prices over the period. The continuous rise in dried bean prices




9

reflected sligh tly smaller supplies in 1961, a higher price support level and demand for
government donation programs in 1962, and a strong export market during 1963. A moderate
decrease in 1961 supplies of prunes due to unfavorable weather advanced prices nearly 3
percent during the year. Improved production in 1962 and 1963, however, lowered prune
prices nearly 2 percent over the 3-year period.
Cereals and Bakery Products
Average re ta il prices of cereals and bakery products continued a long-term upward trend
(shown in chart 2) advancing 4 percent during the late st 3-year period. Most of the in­
crease occurred in 1962, as a result of substantial upward spurts in the prices of rolled
oats, cornmeal, and corn flakes.
All cereal items increased in price during the 3 years with the sharpest advances
recorded in prices of corn flakes (9.5 percent) and cornmeal (8.9 percent). Prices of these
processed items reflected the significant rise in corn prices in the 1961-62 season and con­
tinued increases in processing and marketing costs. Due to sharply decreased supplies in
the fa ll of 1961 from the smallest crop since 1939, prices of rolled oats advanced more than
6 percent from December 1961 to December 1962. Increases in manufacturing costs, added to
higher ingredient costs for rolled oats, produced an increase of 8.6 percent for the 3-year
period.
A severe shortage of durum wheat in 1961 was responsible for the nearly 8 percent in­
crease in macaroni prices between December 1960 and December 1963. The major part of the
price advance occurred in the period from September 1961 to February 1962. The 1961
durum wheat crop was reduced 47 percent below 1960 levels by extremely dry weather in the
Northern Plains S tates.12/ An increase of about 6 percent in prices of rice over the 3-year
period reflected smaller production for the 1961-62 marketing year combined with a 5-percent
rise in milled rice demand. 13/
The most significant increase in flour prices occurred between December 1961 and Decem­
ber 1962. Higher wheat prices, reflecting record heavy exports, a 9-percent smaller 1962
wheat crop, and a 21-cent-per-bushel increase in the 1962 support price, exerted a strong
upward influence on both wholesale and re ta il flour prices. 14/ Continued increases in
production costs during the 3-year period also added upward pressures to the rise in flour
prices. An increase of almost 1 percent in biscuit mix prices between December 1960 and
December 1963 reflected the rise in both flour and marketing costs.
Prices of bread advanced 4 percent from December 1960 to December 1963, exhibiting a
steady upward trend throughout the period. Higher marketing costs, chiefly at the re tail
level, was the major influence in the rise in bread prices. A study conducted by the
U.S. Department of Agriculture showed that the re ta il margin, the spread between wholesale
and re ta il prices, increased 23.5 percent between 1960 and 1963, more than half of the in­
crease of almost 45 percent in the decade between 1953 and 1963. In comparison, the bakerwholesaler’ s margin rose less than 1 percent in the 3-year period and nearly 40 percent
in the 10-year period. 15/
Advances of 7 percent in soda cracker prices and 1 percent in cookie prices between
December 1960 and December 1963 reflected increases in processing and unit marketing costs.

Meats» Poultry, and Fish
In contrast to the upward movement in prices of fru its and vegetables and cereals and
bakery products, re ta il prices of the meats, poultry, and fish group averaged 1 percent
lower between December 1960 and December 1963. The decline in prices of meats and poultry
more than offset the rise in prices of fish . In the meat group, the decline in pork prices
was the most pronounced. Month-to-month variations in average re ta il meat prices, which
were within a range of 5 percent during the 3 years, corresponded closely to the price
movements of livestock and meats in the primary markets. An exception to the period*s gen­
eral decline in prices, September 1962 marked the highest prices since 1958 for meats at
both primary market and re ta il levels. Poultry prices remained considerably below 1957
levels, declining 2.6 percent during the 3 years. Fish prices on the other hand, were above
December 1960 levels in each month of the 3-year period for a total gain of 5.3 percent.
Pork prices recorded the largest price decline in the meat group, averaging almost 3
percent lower from December 1960 to December 1963. Despite month-to-month variations,
annual average prices of pork during the la st 10 years have followed a cyclical pattern
in hog production which has been characterized by about 2 years of increased output and
lower prices, followed by 2 years of decreased output and higher prices. Following this
pattern, production was up and pork prices were generally lower during 1959 and 1960.
After production cutbacks in the fa ll of 1960, prices of pork trended upward during 1961
and 1962, reaching the top of their 2-year swing during the early f a ll months of 1962.
Prices in September 1962 moved up sharply to the highest level of the 3-year period follow­
ing the announcement by the National Farmers1 Organization of a plan to withhold livestock
from the markets. By this action, the organization had hoped to obtain long-term contracts
at higher prices from the processors. The withholding plan was discontinued a month later.
Turning downward again, pork prices in 1963 were relatively low, reflecting the largest
production of pork in the past decade.
All cuts of pork ended the period with prices below December 1960 levels. Prices of
pork roast showed the largest decline (5.3 percent), reaching their lowest level in M 1963
ay
as large supplies of pork met s t i f f competition from low-priced beef. Prices of smoked ham
were generally low during the period, and by December 1963 had fallen 3.3 percent below the
level of December 1960. Bacon prices were very steady from December 1960 to July 1961 and
then started to move upward, reaching their highest level for the 3-year period in October
1961. By the end of 1963, bacon prices had dropped almost 3 percent below their level in
December 1960. Pork chop prices, recording the smallest decline, generally followed the
price movements of other pork products, and finished the period 1,9 percent below December
1960 levels.
Due to slightly higher production of lamb over the period and strong competition from
low-priced beef and pork in the latter part of 1963, leg of lamb prices declined 0.5 per­
cent from December 1960 to December 1963.
Beef and veal prices declined fractionally over the 3 years, 1960-63, despite a period
of substantially higher prices during the late months of 1962. The downward trend from
March through August 1961 was followed by slowly rising prices for beef and veal through
August 1962. In 1962, a 10-year record high for the month September reflected the threat
of beef shortages due to the withholding plan of the National Farmers1 Organization. By
mid-1963, beef prices had fallen to late 1961 levels, influenced by the slaughter of large
numbers of fed cattle. Beef production reached record levels in 1963, approximately 14 per­
cent higher than in 1960, as the buildup in cattle numbers climbed toward a peak in the
cycle which started in 1958. Offsetting the increases in supply, demand for beef was re la­
tively strong as consumers with rapidly rising incomes increased their purchases of beef.
Per capita consumption of beef in 1963 was at an alltime high of 95 pounds, up more than
11 percent from the 85 pounds consumed in 1960. 16/

Over the 3-year period, a ll cuts of beef declined in price except rib roast, which
averaged 2.3 percent higher. Chuck roast showed the largest decrease (2.4 percent), while
prices of both round and sirlo in steak followed similar trends. Hamburger prices declined
steadily from January to August 1961, rose slightly through the late months of the year and
remained nearly stable through August 1962. Following an upward spurt in the f a ll of 1962,
prices of hamburger declined to lower levels in 1963 and ended the 3-year period about 1 per­
cent below the level of December 1960. During 1963, hamburger prices were held down to lower
levels by substantial increases in both cattle slaughter and imports of low-grade beef during
the year.
As a result of declines in dairy herd numbers and strong demands for beef cattle , veal .*
production in 1963 reached a record 10-year low point. Consequently, prices of veal cutlets
advanced sharply by almost 10 percent between December 1960 and December 1963.
In response to increased imports of low-grade beef and large supplies of pork, prices
of luncheon meat dropped 2.5 percent during the 3-year period. However, re ta il prices of
frankfurters moved up sligh tly by 0.5 percent during the same period.
Prices of frying chickens were lower in each month of 1961 than in any corresponding
month for which data are available, reaching a record low in November. The annual average
price in 1961 was almost 10 percent below the 1960 average. Prices of frying chickens
declined as production increased in 1961, totaling 12 percent above 1960 levels. In early
1962, prices started to recover, and by December were 5 percent above the levels of December
1961. Since the August 1, 1962, imposition of European Economic Community ta r iffs on United
States chickens imported to the Com on Market, the exports of frozen poultry to EEC countries
m
have been cut d rastically. At the same time, the increased production of poultry met strong
competition in the domestic market from low-priced beef and pork. As a result of reduced
demand in both export and domestic markets, prices of frying chickens by December 1963 had
fallen 2.6 percent below December 1960 levels.
Fish prices averaged 5.3 percent higher over the 3-year period due mainly to higher
prices for fresh and frozen fish . In December 1963, due to greatly reduced supplies, prices
of fresh fish were at a record high, averaging almost 9 percent above December 1960 levels.
Similarly, reduced packs of canned tuna in 1963 caused prices to advance 1.2 percent between
December 1960 and December 1963. However, canned pink salmon prices dropped 0.5 percent over
the 3-year period, reflecting somewhat larger supplies.
Dairy Products
Stimulated by two increases in Government price supports, in September 1960 and March
1961, prices of dairy products continued their long-term upward trend, reaching a 14-year
peak in December 1961. After a decrease in price supports in April 1962, dairy product
prices dropped below year earlier levels in each month through May 1963. Moving upward again
in the latte r part of 1963, prices for the group recorded an average net decline of 0.4 per­
cent over the 3-year period.
During the past decade, re ta il prices of dairy products have generally followed the
changes in Government support levels as mounting supplies from increases in production have
exceeded commercial demands. Total milk production in the United States reached record high
levels in 1961 and 1962, and then fe ll in 1963 about 1 percent below the previous year's
record of 126 billion pounds. 17/ The decline was due to dry weather which caused belownormal pasture conditions and reduced forage supplies in most dairy regions in both 1962 and
