1 1,0 00 acres Is Indicated in the
Oregon spring wheat acreage.
Usually no great . change in wheat
acreage occurs from year to year
because of the peculiar conditions
under which wheat is produced in
the northwest. Changes which oc
cur are usually occasioned by
shifts as between - .winter . and
spring wheat. Material decreases

the totals amounting to 36 and
24 per cent, respectively. , - '
Slight Increase.. !; ,;
la Corn Acreage"
' Oregon corn acreage shows a
little .increase according to ex
pressed intentions. The oats acre
age shows a five per cent reduc
tion or 14,000 acres. The unusu
ally mild winter which has been
experienced in Oregon in common
with most of the other states in
the western area has resulted-in
unusually large supplies of feed
remaining on hand and as a. result
no appreciable changes In acreage
of feed crops are .to be expected.
Expressed Intentions as of March
1, support this statement. Barley
acreage is estimated at 121.000
acres, an increase ot 17,000 acres
or -If per cent, but barley Is used
as a cash crop to a considerable
extent. . The decrease in barley
acreage Slightly more than offsets
the drop in oats. '
. An Increase of ten per 'cent In
Oregon potato acreage indicates
that the upward trend in potato
production will be continued with
4,000 more acres in 1931 than
were harvested In 1930.' In the
case of the group . of tame hay
crops, a combined increase of , S
