"One of the best oat crops ever,
grown in -Missouri is now being saved
in excellent shape." said V. I.. Nel
son, assistant secretary of the State
Hoard of Agriculture, who has just
returned from an extended tour of
the central part of the state, whose
conditions are those of lloone County.'
The season has been ideal for the
harvest. The heads arc long and
well filled, and the straw, although
short, is of fine quality."
The farmers are also cutting and i
stacking a fine crop of timothy and
clover hay. I
The corn oxer the country looks'
good and is on an average about!
shoulder high. A few sections need'
showers at this time, but nothing has
suffered thus far. Uoone County,
however, is dryer than some of the
adjoining counties which have had
recent rams. It is now important tnal
the corn be cultivated to conserve the
moisture yet in the ground, since
tnanv fields were plowed when
.soil was wet.
Wheat threshing has already
started, and the crop is yielding
about ten bushels to the acre. Al
though the yield is only about half a
crop, the quality of the wheat is good
and it is testing out approximately
sixty pounds to the bushel.
.Many plows will soon be in the
fields in preparing for the next crop.
