Excerpt from Report of the Fruit Growers' Association of Ontario: For the Year 1882

To the Members of the Fruit Growers' Association of Ontario:

Gentlemen, - It is with feelings of great pleasure that your Directors come before you at the close of their year's labour and present their report of the condition of the Association.

During the year the membership has increased fully fifty per cent., rising from eleven hundred and ninety-eight to eighteen hundred and thirty-nine.

The binding of out annual report is a great improvement, for which we are largely indebted to the deep interest which the Honourable S. C. Wood, Commissioner of Agriculture, is taking in all matters embraced within the operations of this Association, and who feels that the information contained in these reports, is worthy of careful preservation.

We have acted upon the suggestion of your Directors of last year and increased the size of the Canadian Horticulturist, to very nearly double the amount of reading matter and added a coloured illustration to each number, thereby enhancing very materially, both the usefulness, and attractive appearance of our Monthly, We have abundant reason to believe that these changes have met with the cordial approval of our members, and that they have been important means of increasing our membership. It will be for our successors to consider whether further improvements may not be attempted, and particularly, whether the popularity and usefulness of our Magazine may not be still further secured.

The experiment of reporting the discussions of the Winter Meeting by a shorthand reporter, proved to be so successful in securing a full and accurate report of the valuable suggestions and experiences given at those meetings, that your Directors obtained the services of the same reporter at the Summer Meeting, so that the report for 1882, will be one of the most complete and valuable ever issued. The Midsummer Meeting held at the flourishing town of Trenton was a great success. The attendance was remarkably large at that season, and the interest manifested in the discussions was very spirited. The Corporation of Trenton entertained the members with a magnificent banquet, at which the interchange of thought and of kindly feeling was continued into the morning hours. Many members availed themselves of the liberality of the Central Ontario Railway, to make an excursion to Picton and the Sand-banks, and in this way examine the capacities of that famous fruit growing country.

The planting of fruit and forest trees at the Experimental Farm, Guelph, was not so extensive this year as last, but enough was done to maintain and somewhat extend the work. We are happy to be able to say that the plantations are in a thriving condition and that with care in preserving what has been done, and making each year such additions as may be necessary to meet the requirements of horticultural progress, the institution will soon feel the benefits of this work.

The financial condition of the Association is very satisfactory. Notwithstanding the increased expenditure consequent upon the enlargement and illustration of the Canadian Horticulturist, and the reporting of the discussions, we have been able to meet the demands upon us, and the year will close with means sufficient to meet all our liabilities.

All of which is respectfully submitted.
