Heppner Stores Offering Defense Savings Stamps
Big Increase in
Cover Crop Seed
Sought for 1942
An increase in cover crop seed
acreage in Oregon amounting to 52
per cent more than this year's rec
ord acreage is being undertaken by
Oregon seed growers as the result
of a decision reached by more than
300 growers called together at Ore
gon State college by the Oregon
Seed Growers league.
The decision to expand the acre
age came as a result of a virtual
ultimatum given by the Agricultur
al Adjustment administration that
the seed purchase program could not
be continued unless assurance could
be had that a large enough volume
of seed could be obtained more near
ly to meet the demands and AAA
commitments in the south. For two
years, according to N. C. Donald
son, executive officer for Oregon,
the amount of seed delivered to the
AAA has not been anywhere nearly
large enough to meet the needs in
the southern states.
The new proposeal by the AAA,
and agreed to by the mass meeting
of growers, was that if a signup of
at least 425,000 acres ca be obtain
ed for 1942, the following guaranteed
price schedule will be in effect:
hairy vetch, 10c a pound; Austrian
winter peas, 5c; Willamette vetch,
6c; crimson clover. 10c; common
or Hungarian vetch, 5c, and common
rye grass, 5c.
All these prices represent a sub
stantial advance over those paid
last year, it was pointed out. The
agreement also provides that grow
ers will deliver at least half of their
production to the AAA next year.
While a minimum of 425,000 acres
was set as compared with a seeded
acreage of approximately 272,000
this year, it was pointed out at the
meeting that "the sky's the limit"
and that growers may plant as much
as they like with an assured market.
Should more be produced than can
be used next year, the AAA is eager
to establish a carry-over supply for
future use in the event of a poor
crop yield such as occurred in Ore
gon this year.
A series of meetings in the coun
ties was arranged by the extension
service and AAA committees for the
week ending September 13, as the
aim is to have all growers contacted
and reports in by September 18.
