County Data on
Issued by OSC
A detailed listing by counties of
estimates of acreage, production,
price and income from certain spec
ialty farm products in Oregon is now
available for the first time with the
publication of a statistical bulletin
by the Oregon Extension service on
these data for 1936. A companion
bulletin, giving even more complete
statistics for 1937, will follow within
a month or two.
The bulletin was made possible by
a study authorized by the last legis
lature, under which the information
was obtained through personal con'
tact with more than 700 informed
persons, including growers, shippers,
dealers, manufacturers, federal ag
ricultural statisticians, county agents
and other agricultural leaders in each
of the 36 counties. Authors of the
bulletin are M. B. Thomas and L. R,
Breithaupt, extension economists,
and C. J. Borum, federal agricultural
statistician, whose office in Portland
gave close cooperation in the study.
A long list of Oregon's important
specialty crops are not included in
the regular crop estimates of the
bureau of agricultural economics,
which estimated the 1936 Oregon
cash farm income at $110,245,000,
Omitted from the government com
pilation are such products as vetch
and field pea seed, most of the grass
seeds, ladino clover seed, flax seed.
fiber flax, filberts, peppermint, tur
keys, geese, ducks, fur bearing ani
mals, honey, flower seeds and bulbs,
The present survey shows that
these and related specialty crops
are now of major importance in the
state's agriculture, Jiaving doubled
several times in the past 10 years,
In 1936, 53,189,400 pounds of forage
seed crops were harvested from 31,
990 acres, which had a market value
of $3,137,300, the report shows. Small
fruits other than strawberries, cran
bernes and grapes were grown to
the extent of 20,226,000 pounds on
8,370 acres, and produced income
amounting to $981,800.
The only complete county-by
county survey of the turkey indus
try ever made in the United States,
so far as known, shows that Oregon
produced 1,166,000 turkeys in 1936
which sold for $2,846,500. Douglas,
Linn and Yamhill were the leading
turkey counties that year.
The bulletin contains 46 tables of
estimates of acreage, production,
price and income.
