Stato Has Escaped Devastation aud Will
Hnvo a Good Crop
OMAHA Aug 5 Hot winds and
dry weather of July have been suc
ceeded by a cooler atmosphere and the
backbone of the drouth has been brok
en by good local showers in sections
of Nebraska where they did the great
est good to suffering crops
Estimates on corn at this time are
unreliable but basing last years yield
at 210000000 Dushels on an acreage
of 8000000 with present indications
and favorable weather to follow it
seems fair to anticipate at least a
good half crop or an average of near
ly twelve and one half bushels an
acre Estimates at this time are sub
ject to change and the one given is
The reduced crop will be materially
changed by the corresponding higher
price to be realized by the amount
yielded It must be remembered that
the corn producing belt of Nebraska is
confined to the extreme eastern and
northeastern part of the state
The Nebraska wheat crop escaped
the drouth as it was out of danger be
fore the hot winds made their appear
ance The increased acreage together
with the excellent yield per acre as
sures a harvest in bushels in excess of
last year
Perhaps the crop which has been
damaged more than any other by the
drouth is the potato crop Districts
heretofore yielding from 200 to 250
bushels per acre report yields this year
of from ten to fifty bushels only
The hay crop in the range districts
west and northwest will be far in ex
cess of any past season
The oats crop will be light The
yield per acre will be nominal in some
districts not to exceed ten bushels
per acre
Excellent crop reports come from
the irrigated districts in the state
