Finally, the figures for the State at large bring out beyond dispute the relation of wheat culture to the injury to grass, the area in that grain running upward from 1,265 acres per township to 3,209 as the damage to grass passes from "none" to "very great." There is little else of interest to be drawn from this table except the fact that grass was least hurt where the largest amount of land was under cultivation, as shown by the average of 15,900 acres per town in the great farm staples where meadows and pastures were uninjured, as compared with 12,900 acres where the damage was considered "great."
