Oregon Leads in
Seed Crop Yield
In USDA Reports
Oregon's leading position in the
production of many field crop seeds
is emphasized in the current federal
crop report summarizing agricul
tural production in the United
States for 1939, says G. R. Hyslop,
head of the division of plant indus
tries at Oregon State college. These
official figures for 1939 showed Or
egon with the highest yield per acre
of alsike clover among all the com
mercial seed production states in
the country. Oregon also compared
well in red clover and alfalfa seed
Average yield of alsike clover seed
in Oregon was 5.7 bushels in 1939,
which is 1.2 bushels per acre more
than the production in Idaho and
from two to five times the acre
production in the other commercial
states. In 1938 Idaho alone exceed
ed the Oregon average yield. In
total production of alsike clover
seed Oregon has exceeded all other
states for the past two years and is
credited with 89,000 bushels or 5,
340,000 pounds in 1939.
Oregon also occupies an enviable
position in red clover seed produc
tion, says Hyslop, having the third
highest yield per acre among the
states during the past two years,
of all kinds

being exceeded in yield per acre
only by Washington and Idaho. Or
egons average for 1939 was 3 bush
els an acre with a total production
of 49,000 bushels or 2,940,000 pounds.
This places Oregon clover seed pro
duction at a little over 8,250,000
pounds with a value in excess of
Alfalfa seed production is import
ant in Oregon which is one of the
high yielding states. Total yield,
however, is slightly below that of
last year while the dry season east
of the Rocky mountains has result
ed in a much larger yield of seed
there than heretofore. This cli
matic condition tended to influence
not only the yield per acre but the
acreage that was saved for seed
Larger acreages of alfalfa and
red and alsike clover are expected
in Oregon for 1940. With the pros
pects of nearly double the plant
ings of hairy vetch and winter peas,
the seed business in Oregon should
be a good one for 1941, Hyslop predicted.
Storm in Gorge
Heavy weather accompanied by
freezing temperature caused break
down in electric service Monday
and a general interruption of New
Year observance in this district.
Rainfall in the Columbia gorge be
tween The Dalles and Hood River
was congealed into ice as it fell,
causing a heavy load to accumulate
on poles of the Pacific Power and
Light company with the result that
several poles were broken.
Service was cut off in Heppner
at about 2:20 p. m. Monday and was
not restored until after 1 a. m. Tu
esday. Inconvenience was felt by
many householders and those bus
inesses in operation on the holiday.
An effort was made to energize
the line about 10:30 o'clock Monday
night and might have succeeded
but for cuother break in the cir
cuit. The so-called silver thaw is
one of the worst types of weather
the power lines have to deal with,
according to company officials, and
while every precaution is taken
against such contingencies, no type
of construction has been devised to
cope with nature in some of her
most playful moods.
