What will the impact of war's end mean to American agriculture? That question has been raised with increasing frequency ever since Hirohito accepted President Tru- man's unconditional surrender terms and the ~lap hordes have laid down their arms. It has brought in its train other questions: Will a farm slump occur? Will continued vast production smash prices? Will transition to peacetime schedules upset farm economy? Three fairly definite answers have emerged and each is hearteningly reassuring to everyone who lives on or near a farm: 1. Demand for foods, fibers and oils will continue to require a high rate of farm production. The world must eat and American farmers must feed it. 2. Farm prices will not be deflated. The governn~ent has already guar- anteed the farmer support prices for many of his products for one or two years after the war. 3. The farmer, unlike industry, is not faced with reconversion prob- lems. His y~b ts growing crops and he needs no different set of tools to accomplish his objectives. All of these factors eliminate the possibility of a sudden crash in farm income. Farm economists are agreed there will be no immediate cutback in production despite the end of the war. In the months to come. do- mestic and military needs of the United States plus the relief de- mands from liberated areas in Eu- rope and the Pacific will take all the food this nation can produce. With vast areas of Europe and Asia laid waste, American farmers will be called on to produce and keep on producing. It may be years before the ravaged countries can come back anywhere near to nor- mal. In the meantime American farmers have a big job ahead to help keep whole continents alive and healthy. During this same time the United States itself must be fed. As demobilization of our armed forces proceeds, there will be less need for the various services to have great stocks of food in reserve. That will tend to increase civilian sup- plies as well as permit better dis- tribution. No Major Farm Surplus. With industrial reconversion get- ting the green light, the dislocation of workers caused by war contract cutbacks may be of much shorter dur~ion than has been anticipated. That means more peacetime civilian jobs. One thing the war demonstrat- ed was that if the entire nation is at work, there is no major farm sur- plus problem. The greatest crops in history have been produced during the war. The record year was 1942. Next was 1944 and indications are that this year will exceed 1943, so that 1945 may be the third best. Credit for this epic achievement must go to the nation's farmers, but the contribution of the fertilizer in- dustry should not be overlooked. Ag- ricultural authorities estimate that more than 20 per cent of the crop production in the war years has been due to the use of fertilizers. The use of plant foods has been of es- sential importance to the food pro- duction program because it has on. abled farmers to produce bigger crops on existing acres instead of having to plow up millions of acres of additional farm land. The saving hi labor, equipment and man hours has been enormous, Farm income during recent years has passed the peaks reached dur- ing and immediate~ after World The war production of garden crops reached a new high. The demand will continue for some time. New varieties, improved soil fertilization and new equipment will aid the farmer in repeating his record production of these crops. War I. Prices are now near or "In months to come the emphasis above parity. Even if prices should will be on reducing the cost of crop come down to government-support production per unit," the statement leveis---a drop of perhaps 15 per cent sets forth. "That means making co- below present peaks--farm purchas- el'y acre do a better crop producing ing power will be enormous, The job. farmer has a higher amount to "In every community there are spend out of his income than other farmers who increased their War- wage earners, for the reason that time crop output as high as 50 per less of his income is required for cent, without increasing the cultivat- rent, food and fuel than is the case ed area by one single acre.

Their soil-conserv- peacetime economy, ing methods not only prevented Farmer in Strong Position. waste of fertility, but actually have helped restore ]t Just as significant as agriculture's ' high income rate in recent years is "Such methods include growing the fact that the farmer has been legumes to enrich the soil's nitro- laying aside a good portion of his savings in war bonds to spend for essentials in years to come. Clearly the farmer has emerged from the war in a stronger position than he was at its start. To maintain that position the farmer should do some straight thinking and planning. Two things are especially important: 1--He should avoid overexpansion through the purchase of additional land in the peace years ahead; 2--He should make immediate plans to re- pair the damage to his soirs fertil- ity level which the vast war crop p~:oduction quotas have caused. The experience of the last war with its farm land boom and subse- quent collapse should be a reminder that the American farmer should not go in for more land than he can suc- cessfully handle. Farm land prices have already risen dangerously to- ward inflation levels. Farsighted agricultural authorities are urging farmers to "keep their shirts on" and steer clear of the pitfalls of land speculation. Better soil management methods on a well-equipped and economical- ly operated farm will prove safer in the long run than vast fields without efficient management. The key to suceesrA~l farming op- erations in postwar years will lie in increasing the per acre yield on ex- isting crop land rather than in bring- ing additional acreage under cultiva- tion, a recent statement by the Mid- dle West Soft Iml}rovement commit- tee pointed out." Increased production of dairy and poultry products has been Httle short of a miracle. Better breeding, feeding and management has been the answer. Even ~reater results can be expected in the next few years. gen and organic' matter supply, the use of adequate quantities of mixed fertilizers containing nitrogen, phos- phorus and potash, liming, contour plowing and a limiting, so far as pos- sible, of soil-depleting crops." Soil Fertility RepleniShment. The matter of soil fertility replen- ishment will have an important bearing on the peacetime continua- tion of farm prosperity. If the nation's farms are to be kept pro- ductive, a vast soil-rebuilding Job lies immediately ahead. How important this is may be un- derstood from a recent report issued by the Soil Conservation service of the department of agriculture which estimated that nearly one billion acres--more than 90 per cent of the nation's farmlands--need soil con- "servation treatment to protect them from erosion and to maintain their fertility. Wartime crop goals, used up the soil's resources of nitrogen, phos- phorus and potash faster than they could be replaced in spite of the fact that the fertilizer industry broke all 15revions production records. Farm- ers have realized that this wartime drain on their soil's fertility level was a necessary contribution to vie- tory. But the fact remains that wealth borrowed from the soil to help hasten peace must be repaid. While every encouragement will be given to soil rebuilding projects by the federal government and by Itate agric'ffltural agencies, the ma- Jor responsibility for getting the job done will rest of/the shoulders of individual farmers. The effectiveness of the individual farmer's soil rebuilding program can be enhanced by the co-opera- tion of agronomists at state agricul- tural colleges and experiment sta. tions. Through research and experi- mentation over a long span of years, these experts have developed infor. mation concerning fertilizer needs for various crops and soils that is helpful to the farmer who is under. taking a replenishment program. The co-operation of the fertilizer industry will be an effective aid, also. The present plant capacity of manufacturers is sufficient to meet all peacetime needs of agriculture. Farmers are more fortunately sit- uated for accomplishing their soil- restoring job than at any time in the past generation. Dollars invested in war bonds, during the period when farm cash income has been at a high level and farm debt at a low point, can provide the ready cash to pay for the nitrogen, phosphorus and pot- ash needed to build up the fertility level of America's soil.
