Morrow county farmers and
ranchers who have good stands
of crested wheat grass might
well plan to harvest seed from
the grass this year it a good
set of seed develops. Crested
wheatgrass seed Is very scarce
at present and there are pros
pects for pretty good prices this
fall. Last year there was a big
demand for seed and not too
much produced in the state of
Oregon. The seed is around 40
cents "S"pound now and we
nave some fields in this county
where growers could make good
money growing seed at that
price. Of course, all fields will
not make seed, but there are
fields that will make seed even
with a limited amount of rain
from now on.
Neils I. Neilson, agricultural
statistician, bureau of agricul

prospects, called at this office
Tuesday. Mr. Neilson stated
that crop reporters in Morrow
county reported prospects for a
, crop as good on May 1. How-
ever, he believes that prospects
I have deteriorated since then
and tie is waiting to see what
Dort will reflect conditions as
the next reort will be. This re
of June 1. Mr. Neilson is quite
anxious to get a true picture of
crop conditions and do so only
through reports from farmer op
erators in all sections of the
county. He also stated several
farmers in the county received
reporting schedules for the first
time on May 1. The reports
from these farmers were grati
fying and it is his hope that
farmers will cooperate on the
next report which they will re
ceive within a few days.
Last reports are that the
