Yield Estimated at 34 Bushels Ter

lion in State.
A corn crop ranking first in both
yield and production since 1005
leaves no argument to the fact that
"corn is kins" in Nebraska this year.
According to the November 1 repor:
of A. K. Anderson of the bureau of
imp estimates and Leo Stuhr of the
department of agriculture, the pre
liminary estimate of yield is 3 4 bush
els per acre. Last year the yield
was i'tf.2 bushels and the ten year
average is 23.7 bushels. The total
production is 2S0.MSS.000 bushels as
compared to 1 S4.1 Sti.000 bushels last
ear and the ten year average of ITS.

tanks fifth in size sunce 1S65.
Kven though this year's corn crop
is approximately 36.1 per cent larg

Hurt. Dodge. Douglas and Fillmore
counties si.are alike in first honors
with average yields of 45 bushels
per acre. Other counties averaging
40 fo 44 bushels are Dakota. Stanton.
Hamilton. Sarpy. Saunders. Seward
and Washington. The quality is
gfcnerally gcod although there was
slight damage to some late corn
from frost. The quality as well a.
yields was reduced somewhat from
drcuth in north central counties.
Approximately 7 per cent of last
year's crop is still on farms.
The average weight per measured
bushel of winter wheat is 57.5
pounds: spring wheat 53 pounds,
oats 33.3 pounds; and barley 47
pounds. The light tests of wheat,
peculiarly spring wheat are due u
shrinkage caused by black stem ills-
