OUIC POTATO INDUSTRY DEPENDS ON QUALITY
This' is the sfecond Salem Slogan issue of The Statesman
onthe potato industry; the first one being in the number of
the corresponding date last year
And the conclusion of the whole matter, using a very
high authority for the expression-- "
Is that the Salem district may become the leading potato
growing section of the United States, and of the whole world,
for that matter, if our growers wilKpay the price-
And the price-is intelligent care in the selection of the
seed and in the growing of the crop, and in the standardizing
f iho nrrwlnrr for the markets-
. And in the doinsr of this a very few varieties should be
used, and those, as the merchant says in his advertisement,
the "wanted" varieties; the varieties that will produce the
potatoes that the consumer wants. ) . , '
i We have learned the. same thing as to a number of our
tree and bush fruits-i-for instance, the apples and the pears.
The Willamette valley should grow, more and more Ortley ap
ples, and more and more Bosc pears, because we can excel in
these; we can raise better Ortley apples and better Bosc
pears, and better looking apples and pears oh the fruit stands,
of these Varieties, than can be grown in any other section.
.The French call the potato the Vponime de terre," or the
apple of the earth, and the same rule applies to our apples
oLthe-earth as. to our apples of the tree. j
.We sfetald irrow principally the Bur-bank type, and the
Netted Gems appear to be the best representatives of this
type. -'!':- I 4 -
I Then let our growers produce Netted Gem potatoes in
larger quantities, and with a view to producing the very best
specimens, and to getting them into the markets in the best
possible condition V r
4And let the Netted Gems be 'standardized, and let the
sacks in which they go to market be.branded with the proper
r rne, and be sure that nothing goes into oneof those sacks
flat is notjup to standard. V "
.'So, in a little while, there will be such a demand for the
Netted Gems of the Salem district that all of our growers will
not "be able to produce enough potatoes to fill the demand.
This will establish remunerative prices.
'Then let our growers produce certified seed and -sell it to
the .'California, ( Washington and Idaho potato growers who
cannot raise their own seed. L
'In these ways there will be built up such a reputation
that there will be a constantly, increasing demand, in order
to make room for more acreage and more growers.
Hundreds of thousands of dollars a year can thus be add
ed to the Value of our potato crop, and there will be pride,
profit and pleasure in potato planting and production in thi&
district, i : , . -
