Ben Sweggart left unpU of cher
ries from nil ehampion cherry tree
thia week. This tree has a habit of
producing two crops a seaioa, and
the sample left with us is of line qual
ity ripe cherries, the second erop of
12. This crop is a little early orer
what it was last year, but then the
crops of 1V24 what there was of
them are all earlier than heretofore.
A crop of cherries in June and Octo
ber has been the habit of this tree in
former years, and Ben thinks it a
world beater. While there are won
derful crops produced in the state of
California down there, you know,
they get 7 crops of alfalfa a season,
so we are told, and tomatoes and
strawberries are produced every
month in the year we doubt if they
get two crops of cherries from the
same tree in a year; if this had been
so we certainly would have heard of
it; so Morrow county has California
beat in one particular, at least. Mr.
Swaggrt says the tree has never been
grafted, having grown from a sprout
which he plsnted himself.

Copper Carbonate Con
trols Smut.
(Morrow County Extension Service News)
Last year a large percentage of the
wheat acreage was treated with cop
per carbonate for smut control. The
results as reported over the state and
checked by the County Agent and
Experiment Station men, show that
it gives as good control as any of the
wet treatments. There was very lit
tle difference In the stand obtained
last fall, due to the fact that eondi-
dions were especially favorable to
wet treated grain. Under ordinary
conditions, much better stands are ob
tained by the use of copper carbon
atet. Fred Bennion, County Agent of
Umatilla county, D. E. Stephens, su
perintendent of the Moro Experiment
Station, and E. R. Jackman. Exten
sion Farm Crop Specialist, report that
in general the smut control is about
the same as for the wet treatments.
To obtain proper results the wheat
must be thoroughly coated with the
copper carbonate dust. This means
the use of some kind of treating ma
chine. In seeding dry treated wheat
drills should be set to sow from 20
to 26 less seed. In many cases this
was not done last fall, and the result
ing stand was too thick for average
conditions. To sow the same number
of kernels of wheat in a given space
drills should be set to plant at least
16 less seed to allow for the swol
len condition of wet treated grain.
The increased germination obtained
from the dry treatment justifies cut
ting down your drills 25 under what
you would sow in wet treated grain.
One of the criticisms made the past
year of the dry treatment was that
too thick stands resulted. This is
one of the virtues instead of a fault
of the dry treatment, as a material
saving in the amount of seed can be
made by this method.
What Variety Wheat Are
You Planting This FaU?
Vane County raraa Burem News)
On of the greateet losses to wheat
growers in Morrow county cornea
from mixed grains. Tho principal
causa of this is changing varieties
from year to year in fields. In cer
tification inspection work this year
some fields that were exceptionally
clean, had to be turned down on ac
count of volunteer wheat between the
drill rows. Due to the dry year the
wheat left over in tho soil baa not
germinated this summer and we may
expect more volunteer than for a
number of years past Farmers should
consider this feature carefully before
switching from one variety to an
other. Yields from fields this yesr
are very spotted and are not consid
ered accurate of what the different
varietiea will do under normal con
ditions. In general the earlier ma
turing wheats have yielded less due
to the fact that they were damaged
more by the heavy frosts the latter
part of April, followed by hot winds
the first week in May. . Fields in
which the heads were well developed
in the boot, naturally were damaged
by these weather conditions more
than the later fields. Without the
frosts and hot winds, these fields
would probably have yielded heavier
than the later fields, as they would
have been out of the way of much of
the later hot, dry weather.
