The production of celery by farmers in Utah has undergone important changes in the past five or six years. The most notable have been centered around the introduction of the new green type (Pascal) celery. The methods of production have advanced rapidly, the quality of the product has been greatly improved, the yield per acre has been increased at least twofold, and the acreage has been expanded.

With the growing impetus of the industry have come requests for information on cost and return to the farmer and for an analysis of other economic and physical factors associated with the industry.

Few economic data have been available for the use of those interested in the new developments in celery production. To provide more current data on celery production in Utah, the Utah Agricultural Experiment Station conducted a study on cost and efficiency of producing celery in Utah for the years 1945 and 1947.
