Britt Spaulding, manager of Helena Chemical Co., in Culver, said the harvest was a little above average, estimating they had received a couple million pounds of grass seed so far.

Helena also processes grain and forage, garbanzo beans, carrot seed, onion seed, dry beans, and a lot of pea seed. In general, Spaulding said, the North Madras area crops are ready to harvest a week ahead of Culver area crops.
