Since 1946, the cost of producing canning peas has been investigated on a continuing basis by the Utah Agricultural Experiment Station. The original comprehensive study was made in 1946. A second study was completed in 1951. The most recent study was made in 1961. In between the major studies annual costs of production have been calculated.
