Farm ere Lower Planting Plans for Major Crops Apparently concerned over the slow demand for products, farmers have slightly scaled back earlier planting intentions for some major crops, but the acreage levels could yield record crops this year unless weather disasters occur as did in 1974, George Detmering, Chairman of the Kossutb County ASC Committee, reported. Mr. Detmering noted that USDA surveys completed about March 1, showed that com plantings are expected to be _3% less than last year and down 3% from the January 1 estimate. However,' the combined feed grain acreage Is expected to be down only slightly, from 122.7 million in 1974 to 122.5 million in 1975. This includes sorghum prospects of nearly 18.9 million acres that would be 6% above that of last year; oats at nearly 18.2 million acres would be 1/296 above last year, and barley at 10.2 million acres would be 129< above last year. "Cotton growers intend to drop 2996 of their acreage, from 14 million planted in 1974 to 10 million this year," Detmering said. He also indicated that soybean growers showed that their plantings would be 694 higher than last year, but smaller than the 8% increase that growers , In 27 fttttes reported January 1. "Soybean acreage is expected to be 56.6 million, whereof last year it wai 53.6 million. Planting of all wheat li expected to total 73.2 million . acres, 3H above last year and J4K.abo%e 1973, Wheat acreage planted in 1974 was 71.2 million, and in 1973 it was 59.0 million, Mr. Detmering said. Rice growers intentions changed slightly. They intend to plant 2.56 million acres, IK below last year but 17K more than 1973. If intentions ore realized, the 1975 rice acreage will be the third largest, exceeded only by the 1954's 2.60 million and 1974's 2.59 million.
