|of interest|| Crop Report - Week ending 4 Sep 1905. |
The week was, on the whole, unfavorable for crops. It was cool, and there was light-frost reported in exposed localities on August 30th, which however, did little damage. There were light showers on two or three days, and in the northwest counties the rain was so heavy as to damage oats, causing them to fall down. A heavy wind storm on the 27th caused much damage to crops in the central and southeast counties, blowing down hop vies, scattering much of the wheat that remained uncut, which was about one-fifth of the crop, and the blowing much of the fruits from the trees, in some localities nearly all.
Pastures and root crops were somewhat improved by the rain. Alfalfa is growing well and will make a good third crop. The late potato crop will be good on heavy soils. Tomatoes and melons are yielding fine crops this year. In Klickitate county corn is about two-thirds out and in the shock. Hops are showing the effects of lice in western districts, and the yield will be lighter than average. Thrashing in the heart of the oats districts in the west show the yield to be below the average.
Results of thrashing in the principal wheat districts shows a great falling off of the yield from earlier expectation, due to shattering by the recent high winds, and the July hot spells. In the eastern part of Whitman county the hot winds greatly injured the wheat, causing much of it to grade below number one.
