THUM!)AY, APRIL 18, 19S1 Food Production Is Plagued By Bad Weather, Insects, Labor Shortages WASHINGTON, April 12 Food production Is gelling off to .tn uncertain start .Ihls season pla- Bued by b«d wealher, Insccls and "hortages ot farm labor and materials. This situation was pictured late yesterday In an Agricullure, Department crop report which' disclosed that production prospects for w'Mf wheat had dropped nearly * Kjflh since last December. As a consequence, the wheat crop may fall short of domestic and export requirements. That \vould make it necessary to use reserve? of grain which the government had hoped to save for possible future emergencies. In addition to tne snnry decline In tlje wheat crop, the Department also reported that: Production Down 1. The production at milk in March was three per cent btlow March a year ago although con- lutner demand 'is greater. 2. Egg production In the same month was two per cent less than . a year ago. . . 3. Farmers have mnde slow progress in spring farm work because of cool, wet weather in most, major fanning areas. 4. Meadow and pastures have been slow to start growth, thus depriving farmers of needed grass lor dairy and other livestock graa- . tag. . 5. Supplies of livestock feed grain —the raw malcrltil for meal, iialrv . and poultry products—were u fifth smaller on April 1 than a year ago l^i decline emphasized the need frs^the big feed grain crops ;his year if a high level production of livestock food products is to. be . maintained. Labor Another department report served to call .attention to agriculture's labor situation. The number of workers on farms was said ;o be Jour per cent smaller than a year «go despite a 12 per cent increase in wages because of loss of hands to the armed services and city industries. On the other hand, labor quiremenls are greater because of the government's appeal for a record output, of crop and livestock products. . Big factories in cutting winter wheat products included a severe winter, dry weather and insects in the central and southern great plains wheat area. On the basis of present official forecasts, this year's wheat production would be about . bushels— about 110,000,000 than anticipated needs. Fortunately, the country nas a reserve of about 425,000,000 bushels of wheat from last year's supply. Unless the government restricted exports, It would be necessary lo use grain from Ihis reserve lo meet the expected demand. There is ample time between now and harvest for the wheat pro- peels to drop further" or to regain some of the tast ground reported yesterday.
