f FACT FOURTEEN BLYTHEVTLLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Decreased Crop Acreage Is Seen Plans for Reduced Plantings in Line With Recommendation By Olid A. Martin WASHINGTON, March 2'2. (/ft— It look* u though many farmers •rt plinnlnj to give themselves •nd th fir overworked land a little more rest this year. A government crop report yes- terd»y showed that producers are preparing to plant less to crops for harvest this year than had been expected by Agriculture Department official* and farm leaders. Aside from wheat, flaxsced, and rice, planting prospects for most other crops are below last yenr and well In line with recommendations of the government. The latter had cautioned farmers about over-production this year, lest It- lead to burdensome surpluses and rigid production controls. Department officials who had helped «t "P thls >' ear ' s fill ' m vro ~ ' gram said the planting survey clearly Indicated that many farmers want to make adjustments from high wartime levels of production. Obituaries Home of Michigan's Youngest Family Price Factor Considered Influencing them in this direction, these officials said, Is the , fact that farm prices are less favorable than they were & year ago. In other words, the ^respective pil- ce» do not offer sufficient Incentive. they said, to encourage farmers to put In necessary overtime to pro- due* extra supplies. The report forecast a 1943 crop acreage of about 361.000,000 acres, or about 1,600.000 less than wns seeded last year. Such an acreage could, however, produce a total crop , , volume a* large, If not larger, than last year's record if the yields per acre turned out to be very favorable. The report ihowed that Intended acreage reductions tend to be the largest in the case of crops where government price supports have been less effective. Largely because of'» shortage of storage facilities, price support programs have not been 100 per cent effective [or the livestock feed grnins. A considerable reduction in the feed grain acreage wns indicated, with com plantings likely to be the smallest In more than 50 years. Mrs. N. O.
