DR. J. A. H'FAIL
Eyesight Specialist, Ontario, Ore.
For tho period, July 2 to Aug 5, '1922
Tho projects given attention dur
ing the period of this report were
crop improvement, alfalfa weevil
control, grasshopper control, potato
improvement and marketing. Mis
cellaneous and personal work re
quired about one-half of the time.
CHOP IMPROVEMENT. One
meeting was held at Adrian on this
project for the puj-poso of visiting
crop demonstrations in that com
munity has had been done in other
communities the previous month.
Also several plots of spring wheat
wore "sampled" tor yield and tho
bundles laid away to be threshed
ALFALFA WEEVIL CONTROL.
Meetings on alfalfa weevil control
wero held at Grove, Harper and
Westfall. and the spread of tho
weevil determined roughly in the
county as far west as Juntura.
GRASSHOPPER CONTROL. Grass
hoppers appeared in considerable
numbers at various points In tho
county during the month and threat
ended clover seed fields and lettuce
patches. The poison bran mash
remedy wob made familiar to the
farmers by circular letters and press
reports and assistance rendered
oight farmers in getting the mater
ials together to begin poisoning.
POTATO IMPROVEMENT. Six
days wore spent on this projoct by
tho agent and four days by E. R.
Jackman, crop specialist. Seven
field meetings were held for th
purpose of studying potato diseases
and their control. These meetings
were held at Ontario, Cairo, Vale,
wyssa, Aurian, uregon oiope unu,
Jefferson, Tho total attendance
was 116. In addition twenty-three
fields wero examined for certifica
tion of which 14 passed first In
spection. During tho course of the
potato work a large number of com
mercial flolds wero examined for
disease. It was found that tho
amount of disease varied greatly ac
cording to the quality of seed used,
soma small fields showing almost
all plants diseased. Moslac Is the
most serious disease. One field
containing more than fifty acres was
found to contain 46 per cent Mo
slac. The seed had been Imported
from Idaho at a high Price and plant
ed on tho best potato land and tho
crop well cared for. The yield will
bo light nnd the crop will no doubt
cause a heavy financial loss to the
grower. Similar results wero noted
whore homo jjrown seed was used. I
Howevor, there are numerous in
stances where good results have
been socurod from the use of good
seod both homo grown and imported
showing that tho problem facing the
potato growers Is one of planting
good seod whereever it may bo ob
tninod at a price which they can af
ford to pay.
MARKETING. A meeting of
farm buroau marketing association
representatives nt Caldwell was at-
tenuoa xor mo purpose oi tuopur-
ntlng in making plans for keeping
tho potato growers informed on
markot conditions arid to acquaint
thorn with, United Statos grades of
potatoes. The matter of securing
Foderal inspection for Malheur
county farm products was taken up
with the Oregon State Board of
Horticulture and tho Buroau of Agrl
cultural Economics of the Dopt. of
Agriculture. An Arrangemont be
tween the Idaho inspection service
and the Federal bureau which will
provldo tho doslred sorrico seems
about to bo mado at the time of writ
ing this roport.
