    Scope & contentPrice fluctuations in cotton and jute apparently were the most important factors influencing the use of the various types of packaging for flour during the past five years, hut despite the relatively lower prices for cotton which prevailed since the years following the war, the use of jute has held its ground although showing some recession from high points, established by low prices phis good flour export trade. The use of paper also seems to depend to a great extent upon the price of cotton, although there is a definite tendency, especially apparent among smaller mills, to pack a greater percentage of flour shipments in paper. On this page are two tables, the first showing percentages of flour packed according to the size of and type of containers in the year 1928, and the second showing the percentages and calculated usage of various types of containers during the crop vears from 1923-24 to 1927-28.
