(Per Press Association.) CHRISTCHURCH, February 20. Wheat. —There has been more wheat offering this week and a fair amount changed haWls. Many of the samples submitted, however, are not in good condition, and not of good quality. This is of grain that is on the thin side and has been more or less weathered. The quality is, however, expected to show considerable improvement in later offerings. Sales have been made up to 3s 4d for Tuscan and Hunters, and to 3s 5d to 3s' 6d for Pearl, at country stations. There is said to be larger area in Hunters and Pearl this season, both these varieties being in short supply hist year.

Oats.—A fair quantity of oats is'on offer, but the demand is not very active. Most of the lots coming forward are feed lines, milling samples being scarce till the grain from the Tieavier land comes forward.

Chaff. —The demand for oatsheaf is weak and 45s 6d is all that is now being offered.

Cocksfoot.—A few lines of cocksfoot have changed hands. Most of the seed offering is oh the light side, and bright heavy samples are expected to be somewhat scarce. Average lines have sold at 3d to 3i-d and bright heavy samples would probably command 3£d to 4d.

Potatoes.—Very little forward business has yet been done in potatoes. Buyers are offering £2 10s at country stations, but few growers have yet accepted this figure. North Otago and South Canterbury crops nre affected to a considerable extent by blight and the disease has also shown itself in North Canterbury and Southland. Increased areas in crop this season should, however, ensure a sufficient supply for Dominion use, provided the blight does not extend any further.

Onions.—Onions , are rather easier, and selling at £4 to £4 10s at country stations. " "' ; " "■' •" "
