Bumper Wheat Crop
Expected This Season
"If nothing happens, Nebraska ta going
t harvest a bumper winter wheat crop
this sesson." remarked K. B. Monro of
Hastings at ilia Psxton hotel.
"Th acreage of winter wheat ail
through southern Nebraska Is much
larger than ever before and it looks th
best that I hav seen it at this season
of th year. As a rule at this tiro of
year th wheat is spindling and does not
cover the ground, late last fall we bad
plenty of rain and th grain attained a
wonderful growth. In fact, when winter
cam on It was matted all over the
ground. Then th snow cam and re
mained for weeks. This wa fully a
beneficial as a coating of fertiliser, and
now that tb snow haa goo and we have
had a tew warm daya the grala haa com
menced to turn green. During tb last
week I hav seen hundreds t acres f
wheat that bas a color such as you would
expect to see the middle of April. Al
ready farmers are talking thirty to forty
bushels of wheat per acre for th coming
season and they will get It If a reasonable
supply of rain falls during' June. W
will not need much more moisture until
near the last f May. With hot weather
the ground would remain in good condi
tion until at least that let la th sea.
