proper condition for going Into winter.
While there'are some fairly bright and
healthy looking fields, n great many

pect of lite. The plnnt has gone back
13 per cent slnco the report of Novem
ber 1st, and fly Is now reported from
every county In tho state except Otta

Is 4 per cent Tho present prospect
lor the wheat harvest of 1912 Is quite
discouraging and should the winter bo

In tho spring.
The corn pioduct for 1910 as re
turned by township assessors was 103,
512,215 bushels. The estimated product
for the present yenr as shown In this
report Is I10,G18,9CG bushels, an in
crease as compared with Inst yoar of
5,10i!,7ll bushels. The estimated av
erage leld per acre is 35.9 bushols.
Corn husking wns greatly retnrded
by the continued wot weather, and
reports nro general of mold and lot.
It Is estimated that 5 por cent of tho
crop was put into silo. The nverago
date of cribbing was October 20th.
Clover seed reported In muny sec-
Lack ot killing frost in spring nnd
failure previous year, allowing good
fruit bud development, and Increased
Interest in spraying, are responsible
for huge apple ciop this year. Prob
able total yield compared with lasi
yenr 1G5 por cent.
Tobacco production per aero is esti
mated at 887 pounds.
Owing to high prico of feed, cnttle
have been sold oft close. Compared
with an average tho number of cattle
being fed for spring markets Is es
timated at 59 per cent.
Following is a summary of totals
and averages of corn and average per
cent 011 condition of wheat in different
sections of tho state:
Northeast, Corn Total production
10,687,035 bushels; average production
per aero 36.4 bushels. Wheat Condi
tion 80 per cent.
Southeast, Corn Total production

por acre 31.8 bushols. Wheat condi
tion 85 per cent.
