Latest reports (rom prune growers
around Moinuouth are that the crop
will be light. It is believed by some
orchardists thut the trees yielded so
heuvy last year as to injure bearing
(or several seasons. In spite o( these
conditions believed to exist, the price
o( the product is so high it is expect
ed that the net earnings this year
will compare (avorably with those o(
last season. Many new dryers will
be built by growers in this vicinity.
Most o( the crop is contracted (or at
(rom 14 to 15y2 cents. The small
crop will be due to the natural
course o f the trees and not because
of any o( the (ruit is dropping, in the
early stages o( development, as is ol-
ten the case.
The outlook (or a cherry crop is
better than that (or prunes, and the
price promises to be much better
than last year. Royal Anns sold
there at 8 cents last season and
Bings and Lamberts at 6 cents.
While the crop will not be so heavy
as in 1918, the good prices are ex
pected to (ully oiiset the delicit in
quantity. Last year was the iirst
year that cherries were marketed
outside o( the citv to any extent.
The (armors have been shown that
the (ield o( industry (or most crops
is made suceessiul by reaching out
to the cities lor markets. The major
portion o( the crop there was sold in
Salem and transported by motor
