Pleasant Valley la., May 10.�?the onion Deal in this Section will be materially changed this year due to Tolje fact that Well Over 75 per cent of the acreage is planted to seed instead of sets which will throw the crop much later than in several years past. According to estimates Between 600 and 70 acres altogether have been planted and of this not More than 100 acres Are planted to sets. The set crop generally comes on around july 4, lasts about two or three weeks followed by the seed plantings which Start about july 20 to August 1. The High Price and Scarcity of sets caused the bulk of the growers to be forced to turn to seed a although in the past few years the bulk of the crop had been grown from sets and two years ago a very Small percent were grown from seed. Under Normal conditions the seed crop will yield much heavier than sets and As a consequence the shipments have been smaller during the past few seasons but with favourable conditions during this growing season a much larger crop is expected. Tho Quot Valley has been known to yield As much As one car per acre although this is not Normal by any Means growers state. Some of the seed is of Early variety and with the varied types the Deal will last much longer than usual it is believed. A a of the acreage is in but not All of it is up due to the wet weather. Some Fields of seed Stock Are As High As three inches and in condition to cultivate while some is barely through the ground making the crop very uneven. Growers who have raised onions in the Valley for a Quarter of a Century state however that it will depend on weather conditions considerably but there will be Little variation after the crop has been growing three weeks. Another feature of the District this year is the fact that Many growers have turned to the red variety due to the fact that they were not Able to obtain suitable yellow Globe seed. Conditions at this time Are considered Ideal and with a Normal growing season a much larger crop than in the past several years will be shipped it is believed. Last year was almost a Complete failure due to the drought and hot weather and Only about 60 cars left the District. This Stock was of an inferior Quality in most cases and growers did not even begin to pay expenses. Those who handle the Deal Here a re the United onion growers Coop association for which the c. H.
