-Growers i Urged to Handle
: Crop More Carefully
r for Better Price
SILVERTON. Feb. 12. At the
annual election -of officers of the
Silverton Hop Growers' assocla
rtion, Saturday, these were elect-
ed: President, John Morley; Tice-
. president, John Moe; secretary-
' treasurer, John steelhammer;
delegate, Fred Kaser. v
The group discussed various
- phases of the present bop condi
"tions. The price, according to Mr.
Morley, Is not at present looking
' any too good. The foreign eompe-
tition is very strong. More hops
' are being Imported all of the time.
' This Is because, the man explain-
ed, foreign hops are picked clean
er and cured better. Often times,
' "hopmen wonder why their hops
do not bring as" good a price as
' they think, they should, said Mr.
Morley, but it is because their
hops are only half cured.
The blie mold Is effecting the
present storage ot hops, it was re
' ported. Many ot last autumn's
- harrest were being completely
; spoiled by this mold, which is due
to the great amount of moisture
'during past two months. It was
'suggested that all hops in storage
'should be gone over and if the
cloth alone was effected by blue
'mold this should be brushed off.
In some cases it would be neces
"aary to remove the cloth and take
.off the outside hops from the bale.
The bales should then be given an
opportunity for free air circula
tion. In many cases, members re
ported, whole bales were perish
ing. According to Mr. Morley "plen
. ty of downey mildew can be look
ed for this spring."
But, the conclusion reached
was that the growers who do not
have their hops picked clean, who
do not have them cured properly
and who do not watch them after
they are cured, will as usual even,
tually drop out ot the growing.
A great many hops are being set
out, too many the hopmen agreed,
but this will take care ot itself
they added; only the real hop
men will survive.
