One of tu -- imnnrtant factors
in obtaining satisfactory yields of
potatoes in Oregon is good seed.
Each year the state college inspects
many fields and bins of potatoes for
certification. Sources of certified
seed may be obtained on application
to the college.
Vetch is best fall sown in Oregon,
but growers who were unable to get
in their crop this fall may sow com
mon vetch not later than February
and get a fair yield of hay. The Ore
gon experiment station recommends
early planting of common vetch for
hay, at the rate of about 80 pounds
to the acre.
Fattening lamba and wethers .on
rape pasture is found by the Oregon
experimen tstation to be quite an
important industry in the Willam
ette valley. Rape is sown early in
the spring and is usually ready for
pasture in August and September or
even earlier. The crop is an excel
lent fattening feed for sheep and un
der most conditions the operators are
making a very satisfactory profit.
