Official Estimates as to the rteld Xot Zlkcly
to be Realized.
Tlio following crop summary appears in
this week's issue of the Chicago Farmers'
Review: Detailed reports from tho spring
wheat growing states, together with netual
results from winter wheat harvesting, indi
cates that tho official estimates as to the
probablo total crop yield will not be real
Izod. Tho actual injury to the crop in Mm
nesoia is already serious, whilo tho aver
nge ot reports from Dakota, Nebraska,
ttr. . . r .... ...
Wisconsin nnu iowa indicate that many
sections havo felt tho blight, and that the
average yield has already boon considera
bly lessened. Though nn analysis of the
probablo croji yield has not been attempted
by the Review, yet a study of the detailed
reports, which havo covered every county
in tho northwest, during tho past three
weeks, does not give promiso to exceed six
ty million bushels in eicess of tlio final
ligtiiesmado by tho government last year,
Both oats and (lax crops havo suffered
severely from tho prolonged drouth in
the northwestern slates, and tho nrosnoc-
ii vo yieiu oi oais win no snort an averago
yield per acre. Rains in Iowa, Indiana
and portions ot Illinois havo delayed bar
vestingaud caused somo injury. In twenty-
soven counties in Illinois, which return re
ports as to tho actual results of the wheat
harvest, tho yield varied widely from five
to eighteen bushels. Rpports from eleven
counties in Minnesota indicate that the
present wheat outlook does notnromiso to
exceed one-liall to thrce-rourlhs ol an
nvorago whero tho full effects of the drouth
havo beon felt. In Faribault. Sherbotirn
and Chippown counties the outlook is do-
clared lo bo unusually poor, licports from
Indiana show that the wheat harvest is ol
excellent ounlit.v. though tho yield will tall
short of nn averago crop. The need ot rain
for nil growing crops is indicated through
out Wisconsin. In Dakota the need ol
rain Is again beginning to bo felt through
out the entire torritory. In Hughes nnd
uny counties tno drouth is severe.
