Thousands of acres of wheat land in
Umatilla county are now being reseeded or
will be in the next few weeks because of the
injury done by the cold winds of the long
winter. There is not a wheat community in the
county that has escaped damage and hardly
a farmer but will have some of his land to
reseed, according to general reports. With
wheat worth better than $1.50 a bushel, the
expense of reseeding will mean a big loss to
the farmers of the county. There will be the
additional loss of lesser yields, for spring
sown grain rarely makes within ten bushels
of the acre yield of fall sown grain.
