Manitoba and the Northwest Territories free pdf Excerpt from Manitoba and the Northwest Territories: The Real New Northwest In fact, I do not believe there is a single acre of poor land in this Province. The Productions. of this country are large and varied enough to show that it possesses unusual wealth of soil. From the returns of last years crops the following showing was reached, although lessened by various cause, from that of previous years, some of which were local and some general, but mostly peculiar to that year. Among these were the very heavy rains that caught the wheat just as it was ripening. The following yields per acre was the showing made as above named: Wheat from 25 to 35 bushels, average 321/2 bu.- Barley 40 to 45, average 421/2 bu.- Oats 40 to 60, average 51 bu.- Peas 25 to 35, average 321/2 bu.- Potatoes average 229 bu.- Turnips 662 bu. Though these reports may all be true, I am satisfied that on wheat at least, they are too high for a full average of the Province, for they had very bad weather for their wheat harvest, and from a general inquiry made personally, I judge 20 bushels as nearer a Provincial wheat average, though I have nothing tending to reduce the average of the other grains and deem that they may be correct, as they mature rather earlier than wheat. The rest average I predict rather under than over the usual yield. Aside from the above enumerations, individual cases are not rare in this same section of wheat yielding 60 bushels from one bushel of seed- 100 bushels of oats to the acre have also been raised, and barley as high as 60 bushels, weighing from 50 to 55 pounds to the bushel. This I am ready to believe, for all of these grains are of great weight. Potatoes have yielded as high as 600 bushels to the acre and of a quality unsurpassed, as are all the root crops. Turnips have yielded as high as 1000 bushels per acre, 500 to 700 being quite common. Corn does very well here though not made much of a crop. Flax and hemp do well here, but there being as yet no market, either for home use or export, owing to present high freights, but little is raised. Tame Grasses do splendidly, particularly timothy and herdsgrass, though the native grass is good enough, either for feeding or lawn purposes. In fact the light autumn rains do not soak out the nutritive properties of the native grass, and in winter the cattle will turn from the hay ricks to eat the naturally ripened grass underneath the light snow-falls of this section. Cabbages grow to an enormous size and mature quickly, so do cauliflower and celery- the latter being large, white and fine-flavored. Cucumbers, onions and rhubarb attain great perfection and yield. Lettuce grows with a crispness unsurpassed. Melons and tomatoes do well, particularly the latter. Wild hops grow in profusion about the lakes and streams, are in general use among the settlers and have also been successfully used by the local brewers. But of the products of the soil Wheat is King. The amount raised in the Province last year was about 1,100,000 bushels, of a general average of 63 pounds to the bushel, while large fields were raised in which the average weight was even more than this. One field had a straight average of 68 pounds to the bushel and another field of 2,000 bushels averaged 66 pounds, producing 46 and 421/2 pounds of flour to the bushel. The wheat, bushel for bushel, produces a much larger per cent of middlings or "patent process" than the wheat of Minnesota. This is the peculiar property of the Minnesota spring wheat, which has already given the flour of that State the supremacy in the eastern States and on the London market, making it in that city in price the peer of the flour of any country or mills that are brought to that great Central Market Of The World. Large as was the amount produced last year, considering the agricultural age and high priced export facilities, save to the surrounding and newer portions west, it is enough t
