Crop indications point to a big
harvest of loganberries this year. In
o:ne sections there will be four tons
!to the acre, which, based on 10 cens
the pound, would bring $800 per
acre. Many contracts have been
made at this figure. It is estimated
4bat $87.".000 will be paid in Salem
during th month of July for the
loganberry crop alone.
Salem is the center of the greatest
4rune section in the state, there bein?
3000 acres tributary to the city. Ac
will average at least one and on
half tons to the acre, or 3000 pounds.
which, at an average price of 13
cents a nonnd. should bring $330
to the acre. At this price there would
be distributed In Salem and tribu
tary territory $1.0&0.000.
in Salem state that last yea
000 was paid to growers bringing
their crop to Salem and that the
value of prunes packed in this city
was about $1,000,000. The 1913
prune crop was considered snort.
and prospects for this year are that
the output will be doubled. This, at
a conservative estimate, win place
