THE EFFECT OF THE BEARING-ORCHARD INVESTMENT ON THE COST OF PRODUCING FILBERTS Valuating the filbert orchard. Interest at 5 per cent on the estimated current value of the bearing orchard accounted for 52 per cent of the cost of producing filberts in 1933. As disclosed by this study this value was approximately double the cost of growing these orchards. It appears therefore that the average filbert grower who has grown his own orchard has considerable "watered capital" in this orchard when he values it at the current market price. Under such conditions it is possible to lower the cost of producing filberts considerably simply by revaluating the orchard, for such a revaluation can be done without actually impairing the cash investment. Operators who have purchased orchards at current values do not of course have the same opportunities to revalue as grower-operators. Valuation of the orchard is not a major factor affecting the costs of producing filberts as presented in this bulletin (Table 23). Examination of the cost records obtained disclose that current valuations are closely in line with yields and hence any increase in interest costs due to a higher value is readily absorbed. There is some tendency for orchards valued at less than $600 per acre, as a group, to be slightly undervalued. Some of these orchards, however, are located on mediocre soil, or are located in districts where horticulture is not commonly practiced. It is believed that these factors justify a lower value than yield alone would indicate, for such orchards do not have as much potential value as those more favorably located. Are current values for filbert orchards justified? The price asked for a bearing more
