The first part of the study investigated the conditions for forming collective farming of citrus-growing areas through analyzing functions of selecting citrus stations, because, in order to study collective farming for citrus, it is considered to be appropriate to take into consideration. the citrus-selecting process.
The functions are divided into eight categories, that is the function of (1) securing quantity, (2) securing quality, (3) instructing the production technology, (4) collecting information, (5) establishing friendly relationships, (6)dividing work, (7) marketing, and (8) establishing brand.
The findings are as follows;
(a) The function of securing quantity has been constantly appreciated by farmers.
(b) That of securing quality has changed its meaning from.the security of quantity to the security of brand.
(c) That of instructing the production technology has highly appreciated and will continue to be so in the future.
(d) The effectiveness of the function of delivering useful information has been highly expected, but there is a certain amount of concern for its usefulness.
(e) The function of establishing friendly relationships is not highly appreciated.
(f) That of dividing work is, on the centrally, highly appreciated, even though its role is not a positive one.
(g) That of marketing will become important to produce more profitable products.
(h) The effectiveness of the function of establishing brand differs among areas, and a certain area has become more popular among consumers.
From a standpoint of the theory of multiple inter-subject relationships, the examples of regional agricultural management centers have been studied. However, the theoretical application to citrus-growing areas has remained to be future task for investigators.
Dr.Matsuoka studied the significance and possibility of collecting agricultural farmland for citrus, and proved the effect and problems of exchange and consolidation program of citrus farmland in Uwajima city.
