improved pasture, land lying fallow,
house and farm yards, and land oc
cupied by orchards and vineyards, the
acreage for which was not reported.
The general character of Minne
sota agriculture is indicated by the
fact that about three-fourths (72.8
per cent) of the toal value of crops
in 1909 was conributed by the cereals,
and about one-eighth (13.8 per cent)
by hay and forage. The remainder,
representing 13.4 per cent of the to
tal value, consisted mostly of pota
toes and other vegetables and of for
The total value -of crops in 1909
was 67.2 per cent greater than in
1899. This increase was clearly due
to higher prices. There was a de
crease of 2.6 per cent in the acreage
of crops for which acreage was re
ported, the decrease in the acreage
of cereals being more than 1,000,000
acres while there was increases in
the acreage of hay and forage and of
In 1909 the total acreage of pota
toes and other vegetables was 269,713
and their value $11,044,391. Ex
cluding potatoes and sweet potatoes
and yams, the acreage of vegetables
was 46,021 and their value $3,359,-
000, both acreage and value being
materially greater than in 1899. The
census distinguishes between farms
which make the raising of vegetables
a business of some importance (hav
ing produced vegetables valued at
$500 or more in 1909) and other
farms, on most of which vegetables
are raised mainly for home con
sumption. There were in 1909, 594
farms in the first class, representing
only a very small proportion af all
the farms that reported vegetables
but containing about one-ninth of the
total acreage of vegetables and pro
ducing nearly one-flfth of the total
value, the average acreage of vege
tables per farm for these farms being
8.7 and the average value of pro
duct per acre $118.36.
Strawberries are by far the most
important of the small fruits raised
in Minnesota, with raspberries and
loganberries ranking next in import
ance. The value of the strawberry
crop in 1909 was $268,772 of rasp
berries and loganberries, $178,689
The total acreage of small fruits in
1909 was 3,738, and in 1899, 3,092,
an increase of 20.9 per cent. The
production was 4,477,000 quarts in
1909 as compared with 4,543,000
quarts in 1899, and the value $493,
000 as compared with $340,000.
Orchard Fruits, Grapes, and Nuts.
The total quantity of orchard fruits
produced in 1909 was 1,067,000 bush
els, valued at $801,000. Apples con
tributed 97.9 per cent of this quan
tity, plums and prunes most of the
remainder. The production of grapes
in 1909 amounted to 294,000 pounds,
valued at $11,021, and that of nuts
to 81,555 pounds, valued at $1,838.
The production of all orchard fruits
together in 1909 was about seven
and one-half times that of 1899,
while tha,t of grapes declined. The
value of orchard fruits increased
from $109,000 in 1899 to $801,000
in 1909, while that of grapes declined
from $15,593 in 1899 to $11,021 in
1909. It should be noted that the
values for 1899 include the value of
more advanced products, derived
from orchard fruits or grapes, such
as cider, vinegar, dried fruits, and
the like, and may therefore involve
some duplication, while the values
shown for 1909 relate only to the
products in their original condition.
