UF-- owa's tree fruit crop is in excellem ondition, despite the drought, R. S [errick, secretary of the State Horticultural society, said today. A preliminary survey indicates that the -apple, cherry and plum rop will be 80 to 85 per cent of a ull crop, he said. This would mean n -approximate 2,000,000 bushe pple crop. On this basis, with Missouri esti .ating a 40 to 60 per cent yield owa's apple yield probably wil qual or surpass that of its chief ompetitor, Herrick predicted. The drought may have caused looms on some fruit trees to drop ff earlier than usual, Herrick said ut no real damage was suffered Excellent weather for pollination f the blossoms was a big factor in aiding tree fruits, the horticulturist asserted. Orchard operators also were aided by the co-operation of eekeepers in solving the pollina- on problem, he said. With th tate's population of wild bees dim mishing steadily, Herrick asserted he problem of pollination oth'erwis would have been an acute one. The outlook for peaches grown n Iowa also is fairly good, Herrick aid. That for pears, however, wa ess promising. Drought, however, has damagei ;he · smaller fruits. Not more than ne picking of strawberries can b xpected from a field, he said, un ess rain is received soon. Ordinarily hree to a half-dozen yields are an icipated from a berry patch.
