SAYS CONDITIONS POINT
TO LARGE CORN CROP'
. The present August condition of
Nebraska corn conipa'Cj favorably
with the high cond.l'uiu of the past
iwo years and lorecasts another large
crop. The average yield of winter
wheat is s'ightly better than expect
ed. Oats and other small grain are
very poor. Other crops made more or
less improvement. This is the sum
mary of the August report of A. E.
Anderson of the Bureau of Agricul
tural Economics and Leo Sthur, of the
Nebraska Department of Agriculture.
Corn hns a chance to outdo the
other Nebraska crops this year. The
picscnt h.'gh conidtion of 9.'!tf com
pares favoiably with 91 Cr hut year
and 90r two years ago. This condi
tion forecasts a cop of 217,:i 10,000
bi-shcls-as compared to :07,7;:2,00U
bushels last year. The condition has
generally boon favoiable thioughout
tho ,-eason with few exceptions. The
June drouth gave an opportunity to
kill weeds and cultivate nrono.lv.
Adequate moisture cumo in July to
supply the incrcas'ng demands of tho
rapidly growing crop winch will soon
pass tho critical period of growth un
der favorable ondltions and whMi if
continued throughout August, should
produce a crop that will exceed last
Wint&r wheat y'olds are exceeding
the expectations of a month ago over
most of the eastern third of tho state.
The crop in the balanco of tho state
is yielding about the same as tho July
condition indicated. The p eliminary
es imato of yield 's 15.09 bu-hels
per acre as compared to the ind'cnled
yle d of 15.5 bushoJs a month ago and
15.3 bushels tho final estimate last
year. The preliminary p.oduclion is
placed at 53,200,000 bushels as com
pared to 57,559,000 busho's last year.
Spring wheat improved slightly in
northern counties and the present
condition of 70 indicates a crop of
3,GG6,000 bushels. The total produc
tion of all wheat is now p'aced at
Oats arc doomed to make a very
poor .showing th.'& year. Theie was
a slight imp ov.ment in some of the
northern countie-, but the crop is
considerably bc'ow tho average. The
condition of Cirf at the time of har
vest fo'-ocasls a crop of 00,970,000
bu-he's as compircd to tho final esti
mate of 70,051,000 bushels last year.
The quality is poor and there has been
some injury to the grain in theshock
from rains. The stocks of old oats on
farms is estimated to be 7,005,000
bushels, or 10 of Inst year's cr,op.
Last year's crop of oats was fairly
good and the low prices discouraged
The preliminary estimate ofvield
ofrye'is 12.5 bshela'per acYe 'rinjd
me piouucuon i,do,vuv ousneis , as
compared to 1,714,000 bushels tllait

stateiW"-... J S
' PoH&Ufts sttbw rria'rked improvement,
paftidiflarly 'inthe'ribfthcrn half pof
the state Whieh includes the late com
mercial sections. The earliest plant
ings in the southern counties were
damaged by the June drouth and heat
wave but the later plantings have
improved somewhat. Potatoes in the
northern part of the state, escaped in
jury and the present conditions indi
cate one of the largest crops on record
Tho acrcngo of the early commercial
crop has been doubled and the late
commercial acreage was increased al
most 50. The present condition of
87 indicates a crop of 10.305,000
bushels AS compared to the final esti
mate of 8,100,000 bushels V.M year.
Shipments of potatoes exceeded 5,000
cars last year and if present conditions
continue until harvest and market
prices warrant, Nebraska should ship
8,000 cars of potatoes from this year's

considerable improvement over last
month's estimates, aio: sweet potatoes,
85; flax, 98; buckwheat, 90;
apples, 81; all hay, 80; timothy,
