THE APPLICATION OF WORK STUDY TO TOMATO GROWING UNDER GLASS

A.P. Mitchell
The Guernsey glasshouse industry has 1,150 acres of glass, of which approximately 1,000 acres is devoted to tomatoes. Only about 12% of tomato growers follow tomatoes with a second crop, usually flowers. The industry consists mainly of small units. 65% of holdings are less than one third of an acre, and account for 27% of the area. 31% of the holdings are between one third of an acre and one acre, and account for 46% of the area. Even the large areas under one management consist of small, scattered units. 36% of the glass is over 44 years old. Only 33% is of modern construction.
