Lester Heringer


Heringer Farms produces 6,500 acres of row, field and deciduous tree crops. Because of our proximity to University of California, Davis, and the diversity of our crops, we have been associated with much of the research conducted by the University as well as that carried on under the marketing order System that covers many of our California crops. Although marketing orders are not my subject today, I would like to make the comment that research funding under market orders forces each grower to contribute his fair share to the research being conducted on specific problems in a specific crop. Last year, market order assessments in the amount of $30,000 were paid by Heringer Farms.
