PINEAPPLE FIELD
LARGEST IN THE WORLD
GEELONG, Monday - To manage what promises to be the largest pineapple plantation in the world is the position accepted by Mr,. Harold Blomfield Brown, son of the late Mr. H. Bloomfield Brown, one of Geelong's leading citizens, who died a few months ago.
This plantation will be in the Hawaiian group on the Island of Lanai. The company to which he is attached had purchased the island and it will be his duty to convert it from a cattle ranch to a 100,000 acre plantation.
Mr. Brown said it would be the largest pineapple plantation the world had known.
