East of the Cascades both tem- perature and rainfall were gener- ally favorable, with the result that yields for the most part were above average. West of the Cas- cades, where drought conditions prevailed and temperatures were abnormally high during certain periods of the growing season, field and truck crop yields were generally below average. Fruit lroductlon this year was good to excellent throughout the state. Ad- verse weather conditions during the 1938 growing season in west- , ern' Oregon were chiefly respon- sible for a slight decline, compared with the previous year, in the total ' production of vegetable crops for fresh market and manufacturing , purposes. From a farm value standpoint, the 1938 season was less favorable than 1937. Preliminary reports indicate that the combined 1938 farm value of the principal fruit; field and truck crops is $55,536.- 000. a drop of 16 per cent com- pared with the 1937 estimated value of $65,817,000 The decline in Oregon farm value was mainly caused by un- favorable marketing situation brought about by .very large crops produced throughout the United States. Another factor affecting farm value was tie lower produc- tion of several crops in western Oregon which was caused by drought conditions. The farm value of the principal field crops in Oregon is estimated at $39,651,- 000. which is a decline of 19 per cent from the 1937 farm value of $48,$37,000.
