Wheat in the Future.
Secretary of Agriculture Wilson is
endeavoring to wake the farmers, par
ticularly those in the West, to the ne
cessity of the rotation of crops. He
insists that the production of wheat
is not keeping up with the increase of
population, and that the time is not
far distant when it will be necessary
to import wheat for home consump
tion. His statistics show that, de
spite the increase of the area of new
ground in the West, devoted to wheat,
the decrease of the area devoted to
wheat by the older states, and the de
crease in the average yield, combine
to keep the total product down.
The 1904 crop was 552,399,517 bush
els. That crop was smaller than
those of five other years iu the history
of the country, and it was exceeded
as far back as 1901; it was almost
equalled in 1884—twenty years be
fore. The annual wheat crops of the
United States have exceeded 400,000,-
000 bushels in every year except four
since 1878.
There is a prevalentjnotion that on
account of the taking up of new lands
in the West the total wheat area of
the country is increasing enormously
year by year. That is not so. The
whole acreage has not increased ma
terially in the last six years, and last
year's total area was smaller than that
of 1889, 1901, 1902 or 1903. The
largest acreage ever sown to wheat in
this country was in 1901, but even
then the whole area was only *boutJ2s
per cent larger than the acrenge of
nearly 26 years ago.
The average yield for the whole
country last year was 12.5 bushels per
acre. This was a lower average yield
than in many preceding years, but it
was just about the same as the yield
of 30 or 35 years ago, for instance,
Secretary Wilson says:
"Wo are studying the crop rotation
question in the northern belt of states
from Minnesota westward to Wash
ington. Wa have found two or three
good crops which may be raised in ro
tation with wheat. One of them is
Russian vetch; another is Turkestan
alfalfa. These grow on soil where the
rainfall is very light."
Mr. Wilson's statement as to acre
age yiald of wheat may be supple
mented with the remark that the
yield ol wheat per acre in Great Brit
ain in 1901 was 33 8 bushel*. The
average yield in the United States in
the same year was only 14 5 bushels,
and that was considerably above the
average for other years.
As wheat has been grown ia Eng
land for a thousand or more years it
is evident that the big average yield
there must be the result of processes
which can be followed with profit in
the United States.
Irrigation has been the aubject of
various meetings in the southern end
of the county during the post week,
big ineetiugs being held in Wash
tucna, Kahlotua, Connell and Pasco.
The government board of consulting
engineers decided that the cost of the
Palouse project was too great for the
present, and have reported delay on
the work. The citizens of the im
mediate neighborhood are endeavor
ing to bring enough pressure to bear
upon the administration to have the
project pushed forward immediately.
The proposed plan would irrigate
thousands of acres of suuthern Ad
ams and Franklin counties, which at
present, to a great extent, is the home
of the jack rabbit and sage brush.
An interesting exhibit in the Mines
