MISSOURI CROP REPORT I
I'OO-f o-f 000 o o-t-ooooV
The following official atiitemeut con
renting the condition of the corn crop
III Missouri was made by tliHuge II.
I.llls, secretary State Iloar dot Agrt
The weather throughout the month
of July waa generally favorable for
lh development of the corn crop,
and the Indications now point to
crop aeeotid only to the hlr.li yield of
r.03. The early corn Is well ad
vaied In maturity, and will make
very good crop without any more rain
It will be necessary to have rains
through August to mature the lute
corn In gmxl conditions. With fvor-
ttbkf weather for the next thirty day
a number of counties will produce
larger yield than was made In 1!02.
In several counties in the southern
part of the state, principally ln the ex
treme southeastern and extreme south
western portions excessive rains and
wind storms have caused heavy local
damage. Along some of the smalle
stream all the crops on land subject
to overflow huvo been destroyed, and
In a few placet severe damage has
been caused by wind storms blowing
the corn down. The damage while
excessive locally la Insignificant when
the whole crop for the state Is con
sidered because the damaged territory
is only a very small per cent of thrf
whole area of the crop.
The present average condition for
the entire stato la 97 which la nearly
li points alMive the average condl
tlon on August 1, for the previous ten
yeara. The condition on August
1902, tho banner corn jvnr for Mis
souri was 101. The present estimate
acreage for tbe entire state Is 7,07,Oid
which la about 64 per cent greeter
than the acreage planted In 1904. The
acreage la slightly above normal but
is nearly 3 per cent less than the
large acreage of tho crop tu J02.
There !s but little chance for the pre
sent crop condition to improve during
the next few weeks, while there
some danger if present favorable cou
ditlons do not continue of a decline
However, a comparative estimate for
the crop haed upon the present condi
tlon Is for a total yield of something
like SuO.Oon.on,) busjiels
Some damage has been sustained
by wheat and oat during tho month
because of the Wet weather causing
the grain to sprout. Hut our reports
indicate that tho yield of wheat will
be full up to the estimate made one
month ago which was for a total wheat
yield of 30.5."3.(KiO bushels. The final
estimate on the yield of wheat and
oats will not be made up until Scptem-
bT 7. when the next month's Mate-
merit will be given out. At that time
threshing, will have ben prank ally
completed and an accurate estimate
ran lie made.
A considerable part of the bar crop
has been damaged by rain and the
total yield of bay will be considerably
below the average. A very small area
of timothy hita been cut for seed and
the area of seed clover will be con
siderably below the crop of 19'I4. I'as
turt-t are in fine condition. Live stock
