Bayers Advise Against Too Many Varieties
Editor Statesman: '
- There are four varieties of fall
wheat that have a right to a larg
er share of the wheat land In this
section of the Willamette valley.
Each of these four varieties
White Winter, Kinney, Rink and
Prohi is hest in the particular
section to which it is adapted.
Many varieties of winter wheat
such as Federation, Pride of Min
nesota, Burbank, White Eaton,
and Foisie, are being grown, but
after talking with farmers and
making comparative tests over a
period of time, it has been proven
that the four varieties which have
been named are. superior to all the
others. , . ','
White ; Winter, which has been
grown in ,the Willamette valley
since 1860, has proven to be the
outstanding variety and. with the
exception of the Red Hill type of
soil, does better than' any other
types. It Is particularly ,well
adapted to the mellow, well
drained soils of this section.
Rink is a spring wheat that has
n winter babit in this section, and
Is therefore successfully grown as
a winter variety. It does well on
the soils which are inclined to be
poorly drained. It is ordinarily
the, best type of the four wheats
to grfo,w on the grey land.
Prohi appears to be without
question, the best winter wheat for
the 'hill soil type. . It is the sur
vival of the fittest, out. of the
many varieties which have been
tried, and is the variety grown by
most of the farmers all through
the Waldo Hills section.
Kinney wheat Is a favorite va
riety on the ' south portion of
Howell .'prairie. It deserves the
favoritism which it is given, be-

SECTION: JW STEWART
cause it is a steady, consistent,
gcod ylelder every year.
- Four varieties of winter wheat
are ail that are needed for this
section of the Willamette Valley.
They are the highest yielders, and
have the best qualities. The wheat
buyers are complaining about
there being so much mixed wheats.
They bring a lower price on the
market, and the difference of sev
eral cents a bushel between mixed
and pure wheat Is a margin which
a farmer cannot afford to lose
these days when margins are so
There is lots of good seed wheat
available in Marion county this
year, and ach farmer who has
mixed seed, or who is in the mar
ket for seed, should investigate
his neighborhood in order to as
certain where good seed is avail
able. IVAN STEWART.
Salem, Or., Aug. 31, 1927.
(Mr. Stewart is the field man
for the Chas. R. Archerd Imple
ment company, Salem, spending
most of his time in the farming
districts, except on Saturdays,
when he remains in the city to
meet those who call. He is doing
a great work; that ordinarily
done by a high class county agent,
but extending his labors over the
several counties of which Salem is
the trading-center. Ed.)
Some More Facta
In a talk with the Slogan editor
last night, Mr. Stewart said the
present season ha3 not been a good
one for high wheat yields. It
looked good. There was plenty of
straw. But the hot spell in the
latter part of the growing season
and ju3t before and during har
vest time'eut down the yield that,
earlier, promised a bumper crop.
But John Roth, out on Route 7,
in the Pratum section, had about
60 acres fo Kinney wheat that
threshed 33 bushels to the acre,
and the average yield in that
whole section, or the circuit of ItH
in which Roth Brothers did the
threshing, averaged about 30 bush
els to the. acre.
And the oats in the Waldo Hills
district went 35, 40 and 45 bush
el3 to the acre. There were some
much higher yields in the Salem
district, running up to 88 bushels
to the acre, but they were excep
tional this year.
Mr. Stewart had something to
say about Hannchen barley.' The
barley yields were good this year,
of that variety. They went to 40
to 45 bushels to the acre on the
average, on the right soils. In
fact, Hannchen barley outyLelded
both wheat and oats this year, tak
ing the average for the whole Sa

well drained. There is a general
impression of this kind among
some of the . best farmers, , Hann
chen barley is not good, however,
in sour or wet soils. The quality
this year was very good for the
Hannehen barley- it went in
weight as high as 56 pounds to the

3Iore Acres and More to . the Acre, and of Higher Average
Quality Yields Have NotBeen High the Present Season,
But Some Very Good Showings Have Been Made by
Growers Who Practice the Bight Methods
The observing reader will find
in this issue records of a number
of very good yields of grain this
year, in various sections of the
Salem district. Even late in the'
growing season it looked like a
high yielding crop that was com
ing on; but unusually hot weather
before and during harvesting time
cut down the expectations, consid
erably, in all fields.
F. Haslebacher of the Hazel
Green district, near Chemawa, on
Route 9, Salem, produced last
year, in a large field (about 50
acres), wheat that averaged for
the whole tract 45 bushels to the
acre. He had another field that
went 35 bushels to the acre. He
did almost as well this year.
Mr. Gerig, on Route 7, Salem,
produced oats last year .that
threshed about 100 bushels to the
acre, and there were yields in
several neighborhoods this year
that went about as high
The weather conditions here for
the grain growing season of last
year were not any better than for
this year. In some respects they
were worse. Nevertheless good
farming methods brought out fine
results in many cases, both 'years.
The Varieties We Use
H. O. White, of the firm of D.
A. White & Sons, is one of the
best posted men in Salem on the
grain growing industry. He is
constantly buying and selling for
his firm, as they are feedmen and
seedmen, and large shippers of
everything in their line.
He believes we have a good
grain country, capable, with cor
rect rotations and conservation
and building up of soil fertility, of
producing in every normal year
crops of grain away above the
average for this . section of the
Mr. White told the reporter yes
terday that our .section produces
principally white winter and
white Eton wheat for fall sown,
with some Kinney and Foisey,
sown either in the fall or spring,
with a little Defiance and Early
Bart, which two latter varieties
are also sown in either the spring
The Waldo Hills section uses
mostly Prohi wheat for fall sow
ing, and Huston (or -'grass") and
Marquis for spring sowing. The
start for the Marquis variety came
frpm Canada. It grows anywhere,
on the bottoms as well as in the
hills, and those who use it declare
that it outyields any other var
iety, and it grades high in quality.
We also have the soft Federa
tion wheat, for fall or spring sow
ing, and the hard Federation, for
fall sowing only. It is growing
in use. It turns out a high quality
wheat for the market. We have
also the Holland wheat, its use.
started in the McCoy district, Polk
county. It is a white, winter
wheat. Henry Domes had a yield
this year of 40 bushels to the
acre, with the Holland, and on
a considerable acreage.
; Our Wonderful Oats
The grey oat is our fall oat, and
for early spring sowing. It makes
the highest grade milling and feed
oat of all. The fact is. It com-
. ?nafuls,.a premium from .the tniller

ley Is good this year about $10 a
ton higher than last year.
Mr." Stewart spoke of the new
Holland wheat. The farmers who
have. tried it are holding their de
cision. It did not show up this
year as well as expected. Two sam
ples that Mr. Stewart saw weighed
went 57; and 58 pounds to the
measured bushel and wheat
should go 60 paonds to the bushel.
and the breakfast food manufac
turer throughout the country.
Our white oat is mostly of the
Shadeland type, of which we have
several varieties. We also use the
Banner, the White Russian, the
Probster, the Swedish Select, and
others; also the Three Grain oats.
And we have a new milling oat,
the Kanato, originated by the
Kansas State Agricultural college.
It is a cross between the Texas
red oat and a white variety or

The best barley .for our con
ditions is the .Hannchen; prin
cipally sown in the spring, some
in the fall. We also use the Blue
Blossom barley, for spring sow
ing. We use a good deal of rye for
cover crops, green feed, and pas
turing. It Is mostly winter sown.
Though spring sown barley does
very well here.
Current Grain Prices
The prices of oats and barley
are higher this year than at the
same time last year, and wheat
slightly lower. The annual Slog
an number of The Statesman for
Grain and . Grain Products for
1926 had the following paragraph:
"Wheat in Salem is now around
$1.20 to $l'.23 a bushel; oats 40
to 4 5c a bushel; barley $2 6 to $2 8
a ton, and rye $1 a bushel."
Right now, wheat is bringing
$1.18 to $1.19 a bushel. It was
up to $1.25 a few weeks ago. The
prices for oats here right now are
50 to 55 cents a bushel; Barley
$37 a ton, and rye around $1 a

pendence Will Irrgate
' His Crop Next Year
Interest in the culture of alfalfa
in Marion and Polk counties is so
marked that the writer deems the
case of alfalfa culture in mind one
that will be of interest to many
H. H. Hanna, a hop grower on
the bottom lands to the north of
Independence, sowed a tract of
five acres to alfalfa in the spring
of 1926. The seed was inoculated.
There was 'sufficient moisture In
the subsoil to enable the young
plants to get a start and give an
even stand, over the entire tract,
but with only a light 'crop the
first season. 1
