Mr. Mustard here trivet a vt- i.
esting outline of the 10 varieties he
considers best adapted for the growers
as a commercial potato in the North
west. The principal market for the irrigat
ed potato of Central Oregon has been
in Oklahoma, Texas and to some ex
tent in San Francicso. A study has
been made of these markets nH nni,.
toes selected that meet the require
ments of these disticts. A white, uni
form sized tuber, ranging in size from
6 to 10 ounces, is best suited to meet
the demand of these localities. It is
also necessary to have a potato of a
good keeping quality, as it ie difficult
to keep potatoes, especially in t,.o.
and Oklahoma. .
These facts, combined w-lh th -n
and climatic conditions of Central Ore
gon, are the real things that enter
into the selection of varieties adapted
to the region.
All of the varieties thrm-r, t- .
Jiibit have been given the most severe
