For the week ending Sep*. 6, 1915.
Des Moines, Iowa.
Ideal weather prevailed during the
week. The days were practically
cloudless, and the nights were moder
ately warm, which made the best
conditions possible for maturing the
corn crop, threshing and finishing
haying. The froBt on August 30th
and 31st seriously injured corn on
low ground in the north eentral and
northeastern counties. Probably 10
per cent of the corn in the northeast
ern counties was badly damaged.
Shock threshing is nearly complete^
A summary of reports received on1
Sept. 1st, show the average condition
of crops to be as follows: Corn, 66?
potatoes, 94 pastures, 10? apples,
101 per cent of the 1913 crop, which
indicates 2,700,000 bushels of apples
to be harvested. With favorable
weather 24 per cent of the corn will
be safe from frost September 20th,
47 per cent on September 30th and
75 per cent on October 15th. Pre
liminary reports indicate average
yields of winter wheat to be 23 bush
els spring wheat 18 oats 42 bar

Threshing.was 53 per cent completed,
