TITORSDAY, AUGUST 9, 1981 BLYTHKVrLLE, (ARK.y COURIER Arkansas Cotton Crop Forecast: 1,500,000 Bales; 410,000 Gain LITTLE ROCK, Aug. 9. (A?)—Arkansas' cotton crop this year is forecast at 1,500,000 bales, or 410,000 bales more than were produced last year. This announcement came from* ile& Me Peek. Arkansas agricultural statistician, who said that be- caus* of favorable weather during th» last few weeks, the state's cotton crop I* much improved over th« outlook ol two months ago. However, he said, late cotton win need favorable weather lor the re- 5' Alien Reds' Free on Bond mainder of the .season it there Is to be a good yield. This year's forecast for the state," if It materializes, will exceed the 194A-40 ten year average of 86,000 bales. The most cotton ever produced by Arkansas was in 1948 when 1,982,000 bales were harvested. txpert Restrictions Eased by Brannan WASHINGTON, Aug. 9 OP) ' — Secretary of Agriculture Brannan eased restrictions on export o[ col- ton yesterday after the federal crop reporting board forecast a bumper crop of 17,266,000 bales, Rigid export quotas v,'ill be replaced by an "opencnd" export licensing system under, which friendly countries can get all the cotton they want. This system will permil the government to bar shipments to unfriendly areas. Cotton was placed under expor' ^controls last fall when last year's ' poor crop, coupled with increased demands under the defense pro gram, raised the threat of a shortage. The department had perviouslj announced a preliminary export allocation of 3,500,000 bales from this year's supply. These allocations were In effect set aside by today's action. Brannan said the export order is In line with, his department's previously expressed policy of providing for the export of at) cotton not required for domestic consumption and maintenance of minimum reserves. The secretary said that by employing an export licensing system, the government would be able to keep the cotton supply situation under constant review and hence be in a position to take whatever action might be needed later to protect domestic needs.
