The detection rate of codling moth in New York apples compared to other internal fruit feeders has doubled from 30% of larvae found in infested fruit in 2002 to 65% in 2005. If one worm is found in processing fruit at inspection, the processing fruit is diverted to juice, reducing its value by 59%. The New York apple industry is worth $137 million, $30 million of which is processing, excluding juice. The potential loss for wormy Idared Apples in New York is $7 million. Any fresh fruit infested with worms is culled with little to no value.

For this volume, the essays were presented using the framework of the primary functions, or outcomes, of service-learning.
