Durum wheat is coming rapr
idly to the front as an export
product, and that the wheat
growers of Eastern Oregon, to
which uistncr its culture is
especially adapted, should
cultivate it more extensive
ly all local authorities agree.
This wheat, which is classed
among the hard varieties, and
is known in Eastern Oregon as
"macaroni" wheat, is not so
popular as the standard Fife
varieties for milling purposes,
but it?, cultivation foy export
trade with Europe ancTthe Ori
ent promises to be profitable.
At present probably not more
than 30,000 bushels of durum
wheat are produced in the semi-
arid districts of Eastern Oregon,
bu its growih is making steady
gain and promises to be larger
in the luture. There a strong
and increasing demand for it in
Lurope for the making of mac
aroni,, and, it is a more profita
ble product for tho Eastern Ore
gon wheatgrower, inasmuch as
it is a more prolific than the
Fife varieties, and brings the
same price in the open market.
Its cultivation and adaptabil
ity to the Eastern Oregon soil
have gone beyond the experi
mental stage, ard it must from
this tihie on tje reckoned as one
of the important factors in agri
culture. This is the opinion of
the United States Department
of Agriculture officials and
others who have followed it
through the experimental'stage
and noted the growing demand
for it in the market.
Durum wheat is especially
adapted to the manufacture of
macaroni, and a recent ship
ment of 5,000,000 bushels to
Marseilles will, in the opinion
of the department authorities,
establish a permanent market
for it in Europe. This export
order came at a time when there
had been a succession of poor
crops in Europe. The crop in this
country of tliat variety was the
largest yet grown, aggregating
25,00Q,QQQ bushele but it was of
a very high grade. It was pro
nounced equal for macaroni
purposes to any hard wheat
ever grdwn abroad and sur-
