Strawberry Crop
Best in Years
Strawberry harvest is at its peak
this week, with the finest crop go
ing on the markets that the district
has perhaps ever seen. The berries
are unusually large, the cool wea
ther up to now having been ideal
for berries. The warmer days are
making them ripen perfectly and
the yields are much heavier than
has been the average for the past
few years. Many patches are com
ing into bearing this year, too.
which adds to the total tonnage.
Prices dropped rapidly after- the
first day or two, but still shipments
are rolling in carload lots from the
several agencies handling the crop.
It is expected that a sharp drop
will be felt in the price over the
holiday, and arrangements are be
ing made to ship to freezing plants
next week.
Asparagus shipments. after a
month of light cutting, are begin
ing to strengthen. Daily receipts are
running around thirty tons, most of
which is being shipped to process
ing plants, although several car
loads have rolled on the fresh mar
kets; .

AAA Officials
Outline Problem
Ahead in Wheat
Benton County wheat farmers will
face a serious adjustment problem
for 1939 of the prospective wheat
crop materializes. Wheat farmers
now have the prospct of a large
1938 crop, a carryover d ouble that
of a year ago, and doubled again a
year from now, and prices and in
come lower than a year ago. To
meet this situation the provisions
of the New Farm Act are ready for
the use of farmers, says Fred Wil
son, chairman of the county agri
cultural conservation committee.
This is the outline of the wheat
situation that was presented 'to
Washington wheat farmers this
week by AAA officiak. The Wash
ington meetings at Spokane and
Lewiston were part of a series being
held in the important wheat areas
to acquaint farmers with the cur
rent situation and to outline pos
sible action under the new Farm
Act during the next few months
and year.
State and federal AAA officials
at the meetings included:
George E. Farrell, western AAA
regional director; 1". E. Balmer,
state extension director; Howard
Mann, executive secretary. state
agricultural conservation commit
tee: Archie M. Camp. state crop in
surance supervisor and R. M. Turn
er, extension economist.
Three principal features of the
new Farm Act—acreage allotments,
wheat loans, and crop insurance—
will be up for consideration by;
wheat farmers within a few weeks}
Mr. Wilson said. Marketing quotas
-a fourth feature of the wheat pro- ;
gram possible under the new Act—fl
will come up in just about a year!
from now, May 15, 1939, as the de-;
ciding date. Operation of the pro-1
gram as outlined is based on thel
present wheat situation. AAA offi-1
cials emphasized that he quantity‘
of wheat to be harvested this year‘
is still uncertain. ‘ l
