Some 350,000,000 acres are due to be harvested, with record or near- record productions indicated for a number of crops. Many above aver- age acre yields are anticipated, with a record yield of 147.7 bushels per acre expected for potatoes, a near- record for rice and an exceptionally high yield for oats, over 7 bushels above the 10-year average and close to the 1942 record. Above average yields are expected for barley, rye, wheat, corn, sugar beets, sugar cane, dry peas, tobacco, sweet pota- toes, and a number of the vegetable crops. Milk production may total as much as two to two and a half bil- lion pounds more than in 1944 for a new record. N. E. Dodd, chief of the Agricul- tural adjustment agency which has the job of helping U. S. farmers work out acreage goals, reports that 1945 goals appear to have been met or exceeded for wheat, oats, rice, dry peas, tobacco and peanuts and that both flaxseed and sugar beets, while not reaching hoped-for goals, are well above the 1944 acreages. Preserving the Land. Despite the hard use to which the land has had to be subjected during the war years, it is still going strong, Dodd said, one of t~e main reasons being the influence of in- creased use of soil building and soil and water conserving practices. A considerable part of this year's ex- pected harvest, he emphasized, can be traced directly to improved meth- ods of handling soil, Last year set new records, for ex- ample, for acreage under contour cultivation and that planted to green manure had cover crops. Acreage of small grains and other drilled crops grown on the contour more than doubled over 1943, and still fur- ther increases are seen for 1945. Lime and superphdsphate being used to establish soil improving crops are showing rapid increases and would be far greater, according to Dodd, if larger quantities of these vital ma- terials were available. As it is, 87 per cent more superphosphate was used on legumes and grasses in 1944 under the AAA program than the average for 1939-43, and nine times as much as in 1936. Terracing, strip-cropping, irriga- tion, weed control and many other improved farming practices are also doing their part in holding the fer- tile top soil on fields and in conserv- ing moisture. Crop Prospects Reported. Naturally, farm production cannot be calculated as accurately as in- dustrial production. Even if factors such as labor, machinery, storage and marketing, repair parts, fertili- zer, add soil conditions are favor- able, the farmer cannot be sure that the weather won't upset his well- laid plans. The present harvest is late in some sections due to un- seasonable spring weather that in- terfered with plaDting schedules and in some cases necessitated last minute crop shifts. Drouth, floods and inroads by insects and pests of various kinds can still throw the farmer's entire production scbedule out Of line. But here's what this year's outlook on individual crops is Wheat -- Largest crop of record, and the third U. S. billion-bushel crop. Estimated at 1,146,000,000 is ear's mdicated wheat bushels, th" y harvest is 67,000.000 bushels above Loading alfalfa hay on a Wiscon- sin farm. This year's hay crop promises to be the second largest on record. Hay and corn have been strlp-cropped on this North Carolina farm to protect the soil from erosion and to help Increase crop yield. the previous record crop of 1944. It is 43 per cent greater than the 10- year average for 1934-43. Winter wheat production is up 14 per cent over last year. Estimated acreage of all wheat for harvest is 64,961,000 acres, 9.5 per cent above 1944, with winter wheat acreage substantially above last year in nearly all impor- tant producing states. Oats--Oats production is expected to be the largest since 1920, a total of 1,545,032,000 bushels. This is 33 per cent above the 1944 crop and 45 per cent above the 10-year aver- ~ge. Indicated yield per acre is 36.9 bushels. The estimated planting of 45,911,000 acres in 1945 is the largest of record. This is the sixth consecu- tive year in which the oats acreage ~hows an increase for the country as a whole. Corn --- Marked ~improvement in prospects during July has resulted in an August 1 estimate of about 2,844,000,000 bushels of corn in 1945. The current estimate, while below three successive 3,000,000.000-bushel crops in 1942, 1943 and 1944, exceeds production in any year except 1923 and 1932 of the two preceding dec- ades. The average yield of 30.8 bush- els compares with 29.1 bushels esti. mated a month ago, 33.2 bushels last year and the average of 26.8 bushels per acre. Most important corn grow- ing states had "corn weather" dur- ing thelatter part of July, favoring better than average progress -- called "remarkable" in some sec- tions-to bring an increase of 159,- 000,000 bushels in prospect since July 1. l-- Rye--Indicated production of 27,- 883,000 bushels is up slightly more than 2,500,000 bushels over last year, the result of a higher per acre yield since the acreage for harvest is 7 per cent smaller. This is still only two-thirds of the 1934-43 average production. Rice--If the indicated harvest of 76,000,000 bushels is realized, it will be the largest rice crop on record, and more than 8 per cent above last .year's record level. A prospective yield of nearly 50 bushels an acre plus a near-record seeding of 1,511,- 000 acres, is credited with the new high. Acreage increases are re- ported in each of the rice producing states -- California, Louisiana, Tex- as and Arkansas -- with farmers in the first two named exceeding re- ported March intentions. Barley -- The expected harvest of 270,000,000 bushels will be 5 per cent below the 1944 production and 1 per cent less than the 10-year aver- age. Sharp declines are indicated m all of the major barley producing states, except California. The entire acreage seeded, an estimated 11,922,- 000 acres, is about 17 per cent less than 1944 and 19 per cent below av- erage. Dry Boreas---The smallest produc- tion since 1936 is anticipated for 1945, the indicated total of 14,714,- 000 bags of 100 pounds each (un- cleaned) being more than one- fourth less than the record-breaking crop harvested in 1943. Bean plant- ings in Michigan and New ~York total 711,000 acres, the smallest since 1939 and less than were planted in Michigan alone in 1941. Farmers ap- pear to be reducing their plantings to about the level of the years before the present war. Lima bean production is expected to be a little larger than last year, California's 178,000 acres marking an increase of 8,000 acres over 1944. Dry Peas -- Although considera- bly less than last year's big crop, the 1945 production will probably be about double the prewar average for a total of some 5,506,000 100-pound bags (uncleaned). Acreage this year, also double the prewar aver- age, is concentrated mainly in the Ask REA Aid for Wind-Driven Farm Generator The entire cost of these systems is in maintenance and repayment of investment. A large percentage of farmers, unable to secure electric service, due to cost of installing power lines, will profit by the four- bladed wind-driven generator. Steps are now being taken to secure the approval of the REA so that the generator may be purchased under some form of REA loan, by those who do not have access to rural power lines. A wartime development -- a four- bladed wind-driven generator that will charge its heavy storage bat- teries in a 5 mile wind, and with an sverage wind velocity of only 10 miles per hour, will prbvide 1,000 kilowatt hours of dependable pow, er per month. This is enough to provide lights for house, barn, chicken houses and pig brooders, in addition to operat- ing an electric refrigerator, a water system and other household items. Pacific Northwest. About 514,000 acres are expected to be harvested, with yield indicated at 1,074 pounds per acre, below 1944 and 10-year average. Soybeans -- A total of 13,283,000 acres grown alone for all purposes appears to be about 46 per cent larger than the 10-year ~verage. Eighty-three per cent is in the north central states. Indications are that about 10,392,000 acres will be har- vested for beans, only 3 per cent less thart the 1943 record. It is still too early for conclusive production forecasts. But August 1 conditions point to a crop of 180,284,000 bush- els. Potatoes --- A crop of record pro- portions is indicated for 1945--some 420,206,000 bushels. Only in 1943 and 1928 has the production of potatoes exceeded the crop now in prospect. Acre yield may set a new record, if expectations of 147.7 bushels per acre for the United States are real- ized. The previous high for yield was 139.6 bushels in 1943. Total indi- cated acreage for harvest is 2,845,- 600, slightly below last year and about 190,200 acres less than the 1934-43 average Sweet Potatoes .-Fewer sweet potatoes are in view, about 11 per cent less than the 1944 crop. Acre- age is down but yield per acre of 94.3 bushels is expected to be the highest since 1929. Total production in prospect is 67,133,000 bushels. Sugar Beets -- Expansion of plant- ings to 780,000 acres, almost 23 per cent over 1944, carries an esti- mated production of 9,332,000 tons at the indicated national average of 13.1 tons of beets per acre. Al- though the acreage is 12 per cent less than the 1934-43 average, a higher than average yield per acre is expected to put total pro- duction at only 7 per cent below the 10-year average. Sugar recovery of about 1,300,00ff tons is predicted. Sugar cane --- Acreage for sugar and seed is up about 2 per cent over 1944 for a total of 302,700 acres, 5 per cent more than the 1934-43 average. Louisiana, .which normal- ly accounts for about 90 per cent of the national acreage, increased I )or cent over last year and Flor- ida 13 per cent. Production of sugar cane for sugar and seed is indicated at 6,976,000 tons, about 12 per cent above the 1944 total tonnage. Fruit--Although the apple crop appears to be headed for a record low production, the 1945 peach crop is setting a record high with an esti- mated 82,650,000 bushels, 6 per cent greater than the peak harvest of 1931. A good pear crop is also in prospect, some 33,162,000 bushels. The three Pacific Coast states, where about three-fourths of the nation's pears are usually grown, expect a record combined production of 28, 031.000 bushels -- 11 per cent more than last year and 30 per cent above average. The cherry crop is down considerably from last year's level, and the apricot pick is estimated at only about 210,500 tons coml~red with last year's record crop of 324,- 000 tons. A prune crop of some 152,- 600 tons (fresh basis) is indicated from Washington, Idaho and Ore- gon. Grape production appears to be a little above last year with an indi- cated pick of 2,801,900 tons, of which some 2,598,000 tons will come from California. Hay --- Second largest hay crop ever produced in the U. S. is ex- pected this year -- a total produc- tion of all tame and wild hay vari. eties of about 104,000,000 tons. Only 1942 has seen more hay cut on American farms. A probable 12,- 000,000 tons carried over fr,m cr6ps of previous years added to the 1945 production would provide a iupply of 116,000,000 tons. Flaxseed -- Indications ,eve that a flaxseed crop over half again as large as the average for 1934-43 will be harvested in 1945, a total of 33,- 972,000 bushels. This would be 44 per cent greater than the 1944 crop. Nine of the 17 states for which flaxseed acreages have been estimated show increases over 1944, ranging from 1 per cent in Iowa to 81 per cent in Texas. In the four major flax states -- Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota and Montana -- where ap- proximately 88 per cent of the 194~ crop will be produced, the increase this year is 49 per cent. ,SEWING CIRCLE PATTERNS ' J p dM hi gJ k Tot s um er an ate n ae et Pattern No. $910 comes in sizes ~, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 8 years.
