totals of all combinations. The 14 count broccoli entered for Lynch earlier in Figure 2 is shown here as the first listing with the per box pool period price of $8.156, the gross amount of $611.70 for the 75 boxes, the packing fee deductions, and the net amount of $409.11 owed to Lynch by the cooperative. A grower total of 161 boxes and $874.37 net is listed under all transactions for Lynch as well as a cooperative total of 2,150 boxes and $11,679.66 net at the bottom of the report. Figure 4 arranges the same information contained in Figure 3, according to the quantity of each commodity, grade, and size packed by the cooperative with totals for each day and period. The 75 boxes of 14 count broccoli appear in the second listing on this report along with the pool period price, gross, packing fee deductions, and net for that transaction. The transactions for each commodity, grade, and se combination are totaled for each day and the entire pool period. Once the pool period price has been calculated, the program is able to post the historical data from the closed pool period to the year-to-date files (Figure 1, Menu 8). Although the transaction data cannot be edited after it is posted, it can be accessed through the Year-To-Date Reports at any time. Each of the four major Year-To-Date Reports can be printed in detail, including every transaction that occurred during the season, or the reports can be printed in summary including only totals for certain time periods, growers, buyers, or crop combinations.
