4,300,000 devoted to both winter and
spring wheat.
A general picture of the state
would show northeastern Montana
with below normal soil moisture,
southeastern sections with fair or a
bundant reserves and the western half
with about average conditions," ac
cording to the state publicity office.
"Beginning at the eastern border of
Hill county," the report said, "Blanie
county reports moisture reserves be
low normal. In Phillips county fall
plowed and fall burned stubble has
practically no moisture, while in Val
ley the county agent indicates it is
decidedly dry." Roosevelt has the
smallest amount of moisture stored
in the soil for several years and both
Sheridan and Richland report no pre
cipitation and snow all gone. •
"In the area south and east of Bill
ings, including Rosebud, Custer, Wi
baux, Prairie and Fallon, an abun
dance of precipitation is recorded. A
surplus of moisture prevails in Still
water and roads are almost impass
able. With the western half in average
condition very little farm work has
been done, but everywhere farmers
are ready to go into the fields as soon
as weather permits.

spring pa. vurage snows up soon, in
f avored kilties sheep are moving

The demand for men seems smaller
than usual for this season of the year
with supplies plentiful and many sec
tions indicating a surplus. The report
will be issued weekly until fall, with
the co-operation of the county agents.
Labor Supplies
September to December precipita
tion last fall was but 2.34 inches com
pared with 6.29 inches during this per
iod a year ago and the normal for the
period of 4.18 inches. Moisture receiv
ed in the fall before soils freeze is
stored for spring use in the form of
frost and it is in this form of mois
ture that the present season is defi
cient compared with both last season
and the normal, the crop reporting of
ficials point out.
In fall and early winter moisture
western Montana compared with nor
mal shows the greatest average de
ficiency of 2.69 inches which taper off
to an average deficiency of 1.57 inch
es in eastern Montana. Since western
Montana is less dependent upon soil
stored moisture than upon snow stor
age for irrigation water, the early
winter deficiency has been largely off
set by the heavy winter snowfall which
has brought the mountain storage of
snow up to a favorable amount, which
with average spring and early sum
mer weather conditions should insure
a general satisfactory water supply.
The combined normal January, Feb
ruary and March precipitation for the
state averages 2.58 inches. Actual
precipitation during this period just
passed, as indicated by reports from
representative points in the state,
promises to moderately exceed the
normal. This is in contrast with a be
low normal amount received during
this period a year ago and furnishes
generally a better supply of surface
moisture than was the case when the
1928 growing season opened. No chi
nooks or heavy drying winds have
made drains upon the late winter
snowfall which as it has melted has
made a very satisfactory penetration
of soils. Summer fallow particularly
is reported showing a good moisture
March moisture for the state is ex
pected to average well above normal
