New Cane Berries Grown
To Meet Modern Demands
What the up-to-date berry grow
er in Oregon, and to a certain ex
tent in the United States, will be
growing in the next several decades
is being determined now on Uncle
Sam's largest cane berry testing
plots conducted at Corvallis in co
operation with the Oregon State
college experiment station.
More than 5000 new hybrid ber
ries, the results of planned crosses
among raspberries, blackberries,
loganberries, Youngberries and even
some of the wild salmon berries and
less well-known sorts came Into
fruit for the first time this year.
These have been the object of care
ful observation of trained plant
breeders who have recorded the
facts about them on which to base
future action in discarding certain
ones and keeping others for fur
ther testing and crossing.
Dr. George M. Darrow, chief of
the berry breeding work in the U.
S. department of agriculture, has
spent a month at Corvallis this year
working with his resident associate,
George F. Waldo, in checking up
on the breeding work. It was Dr.
Darrow who spent two years at O.
S. C. in establishing the berry
breeding work on its present large
scale, after a beginning made by
C. E. Schuster of the state experi
ment station staff. Dr. Darrow is
enthusiastic about the results
achieved already and the promise
for the future.
Raspberry crosses resulted in new
berries, some of which resemble lo
ganberries in size, others which
were bright In color and with the
firm flesh sought by shippers, and
others which had many desirable
characteristics, including strong
Crosses between Oriental and
American species have given hy
brids with exceptionally vigorous
canes, combined with good berries.
Crosses between the native Wild
blackberries and tame sorts have
given hybrids with commercial size
retaining much of the wild black
berry flavor. Crosses between
Youngberries and loganberries
promise to result in new sorts that
will be an improvement on both.
The large scale work must be
conducted for several seasons be
fore it will be known which new
varieties are promising enough to
warrant distribution. In the mean
time further crosses will be madn
along the lines indicated by past
Forced Molting No Good
For Oregon Laying Hens
Attempts to improve on nature's
season for laying hens to renew
their feathers in preparation for
the following winter have not
proved profitable under Oregon con
ditions, according to a brief bulle
tin by Frank L. Knowlton, poultry
husbandman at Oregon State col
lege, just off the press.
The bulletin reports on the re
sults of experiments conducted dur
ing two seasons with forced molt
ing of White Leghorn hens. Sev
eral other states have conducted the
tests with conflicting results, giving
rise to requests on the part of Ore
gon poultrymen to find out how the
plan would work under western
Knowlton concluded from his
tests that forced molting, which Is
accomplished by a radical variation
in diet and environment factort,
cannot be recommended as a de
pendable method of increasing the
income from egg production. The
theory is that by forcing early
molting while large eggs are low
in price, a profitable production of
higher priced fall eggs can be In
duced. It was found, however, that
the mortality of force molted birds
was high and that severe culling
was necessary In order to keep
flock production above 50 per cent

friends write my name in on the
