Hyslop Impress Left on Grain
Growers of Eastern Oregon
Almost any amount that Morrow
county farmers and business men
might give toward the George Hys
lop Agricultural Research Memor
ial fund would not equal the annu
al increased income here resulting
from his work, Stephen Thompson
chairman of the committee, said in
reporting good response to the fund
Thompson cited "Prof Hyslop's
work in originating seed certifica
tion, working for varietal standard
ization, promoting grain grades and
bulk handling, and establishing the
Moro and Pendleton branch stations
as examples of his effective service
to the farmers of the Columbia
When Hyslop first came to Ore
gon, he found eastern Oregon
wheat growers producing 15 to 20
varieties, all of which were so bad
ly mixed that 40 percent of the
wheat marketed was discounted 3
to 10 cents per bushel. He started
picking out the cleanest fields of
the best varieties, inspected them
before harvest and "certified" such
wheat as good for seed.
Many, say Hyslop deserves nat
ional recognition as founder of cer
tified seed as this was the first
timle grain seed, at least, was cer
tified in the United States. Esti
mates are that elimination of mix
ed wheat is easily worth $25,000 a
year to som(a of the larger wheat
growing counties for the past 30
Wheat grades in the early days
were just about what each buyer
decided they would be. "Prof de
cided this was undlair to producers
so advocated federal grain grades
Ldrninistered by unbiased trained
officials. National grain authorities
freely acknowledge that the pres
ent national system of grain grades
is partly due to his work.
Grain was all sacked and handled
through flat warehouses mostly
owned by wheat detalers when Hys
lop began his work in Oregon. He
believed in the economy and effi
ciency of bulk handling and spent
week after week during the first
world war arguing for farmers' ele
vators now common throughout the
state, including eight large public
elevators and several privately
owned in this county.
Along with his fight for bulk
handling, "Prof later successfully
defended the system when a suit
was brought in Umatilla county
claiming that bulk handling reduc
ed the value of steed grain. He also
helped feke the fight for a fair re
lationhip between coast and Chi
cago wheat prices over the head of
grain administrator ,to Presidfent
Wilson, where it was suocesful.
Hyslop was also the man behind
the establishment of the Sherman
county tend Pendleton branch ex
periment stations which developed
improved cultural practices and
practically all the grain varieties
row used in eastern Oregon.
Whatever money is raised in the
present state-wide effort will b.-'
kept as a perpetual fund, the inter
est from which will be used to
help continue the service to Ore
gon farms that was the life work
of Professor Hyslop, Thompson
