In the production of red clover
seed, the Salem district, has been
a leader.. Jn most years, there
have been shipped 60 V 75 cars,
which at around 20 cents a pound
has run to $5000 to $6000 a car,
or a total of $30q,000 to $450.
000 a year. Some bad crop years
for red clover rather discouraged
part of the growers; but they are
putting out ' more than ever. H. (
O, White, of D. A. White & Son,
Salem, leading seedmen and deal,

man reporter yesterday that the
new clover acreage going out this
spring has increased at least -400
per cent over recent yars! That,
is, 'the . red clover1; acreage' alone.

The prices received by our grow
ers for thefr vetch eeed run
around 5 cents a pound; about j a
fourth the price of red clover
seed;' but the production of vetch
seed is three to four times, aa high
to the acre as a red clover seed.
The Salem district growers turn
off 700 to 1200 ppunds of clean
vetch? seed' to the acre ;o in rare
cases very - much more-7-even 1 as
high as a ton to the acre. s '
There is some crimson clover

-' Our growers produce1, a con
stantly larger acreage ' . a! the
white clovers; the Als'kr, Sweet,
White Dutch, Bokhara or Honey
clovers, etc - This is very Impor
tant, on account of the fact tnat
bees can work In whits clovers,
and they need it for late bee pas
ture. With plenty ! of (late b?e
pasture, this will be the greatest
bee counry In the world. The
early honey flow here Is the
largest known, excepting in south
ern Oregon., 'And fruit growers
must have , bees, for pollination
purposes, in order! to insure their
crops. , :
"There is also somei airalla
grown , herer aome has , been pro
duced for 20 year's or more. Per
haps our Salem district farmers
had 200 acres of alfalfa last year.
They are adding at least 100
acres this year. Enough seed was
sold the past three days to plant
50 to 60 acres of alfalfa.- This
acreage will no doubt be Increas-
,ed annually (from now on. The
American variety Is used here,
Canada field peas are H grown
here to some extent,, mostly', for
hog feed-for . "hogging off."
