When In town on Monday, (Joorgo
W. Ilrndloy, ennnRod In promotlns
tho nturoh fnctory, took oxcaptloa to
thu potato starch fnots and flicurcs
sent out from tho Unlvarslty of Oro
Kon nnd recently published In Tho
Ilullotln. AccordlnR to Mr. Ilrndloy
this stntnmont was tnadu by a mnn
who know nothlnR nbout tho subject.
ProoxHor Hnid'lcr of tho Oregon Ar
rlculturnl CoIIoro, on tho contrary Is
competent to spank or potato march
manufacture Mr. Ilrndloy snld, and
has Rlvon out tho followltiR Intorvlow
relating to It.
"For sovornl years pnst tho Depart-
lliont Of AeronoillV of thn flniL-nn Air.
rrlculturnl CoIIoro has been slvlnx
consldorabla nltcntlon to developing
now innrknts for tho Oregon potato.
Tho priilbllltles for tho successful
iruinufncturo of potatoes, It has boon
learned, am so Rood that through tho
efforts of tho CoIIoro cnpltal hns ho
cotno Interested nnd Is now looking
ovor tho situation In tho state for
thn purposo or establishing a potato
"Whllo prior to 11)12 tho market
for Oregon potntoos was excellent,
slnco that time, duo largely to nn or-
cess in production, prices hnvo fallen
off and tho market boenmo very un
cortnln. This his boon so discourage
lug to growers thnt there Is dnneor
of this Important agricultural Indus
try suffering n serious rolnpso. For
sovcrnl years, therefore, tho colleen
hns been tusking a study or tho pos-
siuiuues tor uovoioping now markets.
Potatoes oro ono of tho most valu
blo cash crops tho stato produces,
as conditions throughout Oregon, ex
cept at extreme elevations oro very
fnvornblo for their profitable produc
tion, and tho crop Is adapted to a
very wldo vnrloty of farm conditions,
nnd henco Is of Intorest to every far
mer. Asldo from tbolr Importance
as a cash crop, potatoes aro of great
value Indirectly In rotations for
maintaining fortuity. destroying
weeds, and Improving tilth. A steady
market, however. Is Imporntlvo If tho
crop Is to contlnuo to bo profitably
"Through tho uso ot tho best cul
tural mothods, a proper rotation, nnd
thn selection of tiurc. dlsoaso-frca.
high-yielding scod, tho Oregon far
mer enn compoto wltli potato growers
anywhere In tho mnttor of yields,
quality, nnd cost of production. Tho
only requirement, thon. for tho suc
cess or tho Industry Is somo method
or regulating tho supply to tho de
mand, nnd thus maintain n stendy
mnrkot nt good prices. If, whenever
thoro Is nn excess In production this
oxcomi can bo kept off tho market nnd
only tnblo potatoes of uniformly high
quality supplied to meet tho domnnd,
thero will bo little danger In futuro
of demoralizing tho market such as
wo had In 1912 nnd have hnd slnco.
"Tho question thon la whethor'tho
excess supply enn bo tnken cara of In
somo profltnblo wny. After having
given consldornblo study to this ques
tion, I nm satisfied that tho manufac
ture or potatoes offers tho oolutlon.
In 1013 I prescntod this question be
fore tho Portland Chamber of Com
merce and Inter also tho Oregon Man
ufacturers' Association. Slnco thnt
tlmo, cnpltnl has become Intorcstod
nnd tho establishment of n potato
March factory Is now donnltely plan
ned. "Such n factory, hnvlng a capacity
for 100 tonH or potatoes per day,
will cost from $20,000 to $40,000 to
establish nnd put Into operation. Dur
ing a run of six months, which Is
possible under Orogon conditions,
this factory will consumo tho cull
erop from 10,000 acres or moro of
potatoos. At a prleo from 20 to 30
cents per hundred, the farmer will
rccolvo n very profltnblo roturn from
his culls, which aro now a dead loss.
In years whon tho market for tnblo
potatoos la low, due to ovor supply,
tho crop could bo very much moro
olosoly graded, only tho highest qual
ity bolng turned on to tho market for
tnblo uso nnd nil or tho excess shlp
pod to tho stnrch fnctory. Thus, tho
tablo mnrkot prlco may bo maintained
for tho starch fnctory o flora a profl
tnblo roturn to tho farmer for nil or
hln excess crop. With the successful
establishment or ono factory, others
will follow, so thnt tho entire potato
aoroago of Oregon may bo fully taken
"Whon tho Oregon tnblo crop can
thus ho closely graded, Its high qual
ity will command n premium on tho
great California mnrkot. Tho fnvor
nblo soil nnd climatic conditions of
Oregon, together with tho uso of
hottor Hood nnd production mothods,
will gtvo tho Oregon farmer tho ad
vantage in competition ovor tho
growora of any othor region.
"From tho manufacturers stand
point, the potato starch Industry Is
vory promising. Analysis of many
samples of Orogon potntooa show
thorn to havo a range ot from IS to
2C per cont stnrch contont, with nn
avorngo ot 20 por cont. It will ho
possible for tho manufacturer to pny
tho farmer from 20 to 30 conts por
hundred for his culls nnd excess po
tatoos and still mnko n hnndsomo
profit on tho manufacturing ond. Tho
mnrkot for potato starch In the Unlt
od States la vory large, somo 15,000
tons bolng consumed annually In tho
toxtllo Industry alono In the East
tho avorngo nrlce tor potato starch
bolng 4 cents per pound, In Port
land, Beattlo nnd Spokane, somo 2,
000 tons or march aro consumed an
nually. This starch Is now made
from corn, which Is Inferior both for
manufacturing nnd food purposes to
mo potato mnrcn, and on which in
addition tho Northwest must pay the
freight from tho contra) mat oh and
send tho money back to tho farmers
nnd manufacturer of thnt region.
Whllo tho Northwest could readily
consume tho entire production from
tho new factory proponed, yet potato
siuroii produced in tins region will ho
able to compoto with thnt imported
from Germany, which Is now usod In
tho eastern states, for tho new rnton
via tho Canal In addition to tho tariff
on potato starch will permit tho
Norhwcst manufacturer to uso tho
eastern market profitably.
"A starch factory consuming 100
tons of potatoes per day will In tho
sonson's run produce 3,000 tons or
starch. This will roqulro 000,000
burhels of potatoes or tho cull crop
from approximately 16,000 acres
yielding 1G0 bushels nor ncro 25
per cont of which aro culls. Tho
fnctory succcsstully uses potntocs In
practically any condition those thnt
nro too largo, too small, too grocn,
diseased, frozen or even rotten. Even
tunlly, with the successful manufac
ture ot starch, tho manufacture of
potato glucose, potato flour, nnd po
tato flakes may bo profitably under
taken. Points too dlstnnt from tho
fnctory to ship potntocs may at low
cost Install green starch plants local
ly and ship tho grcon starch to tho
central fnctory at n reduction of ap
proximately two-thirds of the weight.
With only ono or two control factor
ies, tho uso or subsidiary grcon stnrch
plants would permit every section of
tho stnto to oajoy the advantage of
this now mnrkot outlet for potntocs.
I believe thnt In regions like tho rich ,
tldolnnds of Clatsop, Tillamook and
Coos counties, where very large
yields or potntocs nro posslblo, at
low cost por bushel, tho cntlro crop
enn bo raised profitably for starch
manufacture nlono, thus giving theso
localities a now Industry.
"Tho greatest advantage of tho
factory, however, will bo In that It
will offer the farmer a profitable out-
lot for tho culls and tho excess crop,
so that at all times only the highest
grade of tablo potatoes will bo turn
cd on to tho market, nnd thus tho
tablo mnrkot prlco will bo maintain
cd at a fairly steady level. In Ger
many, whero somo 160,000,000 bush
els of potatoes aro annually manufac
tured, tho effect hns been to practic
ally ellmlnato variation In tho prlco
of the tablo crop from year to year.
I am confident wo enn reach tho satna
result here In Oregon.
"Kvcry encouragement, thorofore,
al.ould be offered tho men who aro
endeavoring to start this now Indus
try. It will provo profltablo to both
th i-rower and tho manufacturer If
they co-cpernto with each other In
launching tho project.
"Potato growers will bo Interested
to know that tho collego for moro
than a year hns had n manuscript
rendy on the potato markets and po
tato starch Industry and that, now
tho factory Is nbout to be established,
this manuscript wilt go to press nnd
be available at an early date. Tie-
quests for this publication may be
addressed to tho Collego."
