COMMISSIONER CARSON MAKES REP0RTlCOUNTY D0INGS
Gives Valuable Statisiics in Regard to the Fruit Industry
of Southern Oregon Counties.
Vnlue of Fruit in Third District
Increases Over Half Mil
lion In Two Year.
To the Honorable President and Mom-
bers of the Stato Board of Horticul
I rcsix"ctfally submit the following
report for the biennial year ending
September 80th, 1904, iu regard to the
Horticultural industry of the Third
The Third district embraces Coos,
Carry, Dougliis, Josephine, Jackson,
Lake and Klamath counties, all south
ern counties of the state, beginning at
the Pacific and running thence east
along the North California line to the
west boundary line of the State of
All of those, conuties are mountain
ous Willi large una small valleys,
witliJ-olling foot hills, with variouB
soils such as alluvial along the rivers
aud creek bottoms, red loam and
aslicy granite on the foot hills.
The alluvial soils along the rivers
anil creek bottoms are of inexhausti
ble richness, as the winter rains bring
down from the higher levels, plant
food that is constantly renewing those
soils, und as a rule they are sub-irri
gated, and any kind of a crop planted
in these soils yields bountifully.
These were the first soils settled on
aud improved by the pioueers of
Oregon. Subsequent settlers took
np homesteads ou tho foot hills, and
where possible built ditches and con
ducted the waters of the streams to
their farms and by that means made
these foot hills very productive. -With
water it was fontid that the foothill
lauds were as productive as the allu
vial coils. Tint these foot-hill soils
contained rich plant food when the
same could bo watered.
Of the seven counties iu the Third
District, only three at tli3 present are
engaged in horticultural pursuits In
a commercial sense, to-wit : Douglas,
Josephine and Jackson.
Coos and Curry, both coast comities,
am largely engaged 1 1 the dairy busi
ness. Lake aud Klamath counties iu
southeastern Oregon, owing to the
vast ranges of bunch grass on the
mountains aud the wonderful yield
of alfalfa iu the valleys, is princi
pally devoted to stock raising. The
want of railroad facilities has retard
ed their liortlcnltnrnldevelopmout.
The soils and climatic conditions
of these counties are favorable to hor
ticultural development and it will be
but a short time when the great
prntfls from apple growing will en
gage tho attention of these four
countries, as railroads are now being
built into these comities.
To describo by counties the value
iiiul extent of lands adapted to liorti
cural pursuits in the Third District, I
find Is impossible. The area of such
lauds are so vast that an estimate of
the acreage and value would bo mere
guess work and be of little practical
value. It is not unreasonable for me
to say that at tho present, not 10 per
cent of tho lands of the seven counties
ot the Third Di-trict adupted to bor
ticultural pursuits are plauted, and
devoted to the industry.
To approximate the value of horti
cultural land, there are bearing apple
orchards in, Kogue river valley, that
for the past three years have paid
their owners floo an aero. It must
b 1 understood not all bearing apple
orchards in the Kogne Kiver valley
during thut time have paid their
owners that sum per acre, as there are
orchards that have only paid f loO to
t 'oO jh t acre. These men who deriv
ed the less amount per acre from their
orchards so f ir as soil and age of
orchard were concerned had equal
opportcnity witli the men who m:de
t ,00 per acre, but many little details,
such us thinning out their fruit at the
proper time, the neglect to spray f ir
the moth, etc., lessened their profits.
Tho greater protlls or less is purely a
question of personality, a loe of the
husiti 'sfl, uud to do things and uot
That the Third District has greatly
improved in horticultural pursuits
during tho past two years for coin-
purativa purposes, I submit the gross
value of fruits sold in IIKH and V.2:
Apples, 8lK),(KK) boxes.
I'ears, 100, (XX) boxes.
Prunes, H, 000, 000 pounds, cored.
Apples dried 200,000 poouds.
ijuiall fruits, berries, etc., 50,000
Gross value for the two years,
Fur He'll and .1U0J the following is
a careful estimate for those years :
Apples 300,000 boxes.
Pears 120.000 boxes.
Prjnes, 7,00rt,0X) pounds, cored.
Peaches, 10,000 boxes (20 lbs each .
Small Fruits, 60,000 crates.
Gross Value, K 10,000.
Apples, 400,000 boxes.
Pears, 100,000 boxes.
Prones, S.OOO.OOU lbs.
Peaches, 200,000 boxes (20 lbs.
Hmail Emits, 7.",000 crates.
Gross value, f;.'j0,000.
Total grots value for 11(03 4,
I!y comparing the gross valne of the
oat-put of I'-sJl and 1K03 with 1103 and
1004, it will be seen that the value
has increased iu two years, 'i87,000.
This, notwithstanding iu 1003 our
peach crop wns nearly a failure, and
iu 11)04 our prune crop was uot over
35 per cent of a uormal crop This iu
crnaso iu valne the past two years Is
duo to the fact that many new or
chards liavo come into bearing and
growers, by thinning ont their fruit
aud butter cultivating and spraying,
have grown a higher grade of frnit
that commands better prices iu the
F'or tho years 1903 and 1904, the sev
eral counties of tho district produced
the following amount of fruit as tubu
lated above :
Apples. (iOO.OOO boxes.
Peur, 100,000 boxes.
Prunes, 1,000,000 pounds, cured.
Peaches, loO.OOO boxes.
Small Fruits, 60,000 crntes.
Apples, 125,000 boxes.
Pears, 80,000 boxes.
Primes, 8,7."0,000 pounds, cured.
Poaches, 130,000 boxes.
Small Fruits, 60,000 crntes.
Apples, 75,000 boxes.
Ponrs, 30,000 boxes.
Prnnos, 2,"0,000 pounds.
IVnches, 80,000 boxes.
Small F'ruita, 2,", 000 crates.
Tho above estimates ure made from
enreful (lata gathered through the
years 1903-4 for tho three counties
above tubulated that nro engaged in
commercial fruit growing.
From the best data I nin able to ob
tain. Coos, Curry, Lake nnd Kliimnth
counties, produco mora than euougl
apples, prunes and small fruits, such
as stiawberries, blackberries, etc, for
domestic nse, and Coos and Curry ex
port to California markets about oOOO
boxes of apples annually. From the
foregoing estimates it will be obscrv
ed that tho horticultural Industry of
tho Third District is iu a healthy con
ditiou uud rapidly extending.
During 1903 and 1901, were planted
in Jackson county, about 4000 acres to
apples and pears. During tho same
period, Donglas county planted 1500
ucres in apples and pears nnd Joso
phlno county about 200 ucres in apples,
making a total ot 7200 acres ot now
orchards for tho two years.
From present horticultural produc
tiou and only 10 per cent of the laud
adapted to fruit raising planted in the
district, tho magnitude of the industry
iu a few years will be large.
The great profits derived from ap-
pie and pear growing is from year to
year stimulating the planting of new
I estimate, that Jackson county will
plant 3000 ucres to apples uud pear
next winter. Dougliisconuly 200 acres
aud Josephine 500 acres.
Irrigation is becoming a factor in
successful apple growing in this dis
trict. Iu ull rases where pumping
plants have been put in uud applo uud
pour orchards lnigutnd, tho profits
from the orchard huvo doubled.
Gusollue Is found to be a cheap and
jfTeclivo power, and will be largely
used in 0110 or two years more.
Where water for pumping cannot
he hud from running streams or hikes,
wells uro dug and with tunnels to
create reservoirs, an abundance of
water can bo develojied ou any 40.acre
tract to irrigate it. At the present,
the future of fruit growing in the
Third District is bright, and promises
to become one of the greatest Indus
tries of Southern Oregon. Climate
and soil being congenial to the apple
and pear uud the markets of the Mid
dle West and Atlantic States, together
with the Euroiicun demand for our
Yellow Newtowns and the Oriental
tradu that can ho hail, stimulates men
of capital to plant out largo orchards
as an investment.
Our present production of fruits by
comparison will look very small to
what it will bu 10 years hence.
