MARTIN WASHINGTON Wi ~ American farmers this year turned in a record production Job that may not be repeated for several yeius, ; In its final 1952 crop report, the Agriculture Department said yesterday the harvest of crops was second to the'record set in 1948 and that the production of livestock and livestock products was by far the largest !n history. The combined output of crops and livestock and livestock products was also the largest iii history. But this year's output was so large that It has started, the piling up of some farm surpluses. This situation may lead the govcrnmenl to call upon producers to go a little easier next year. Already the Agriculture Department has suggested less wheat. It soon will suggest less cotton. Co mplic ating the picture is the fact that foreign markets are easing off considerably from war and postwar levels which farmers have become accustomed to satisfying. This year's farm achievement was remarkable. It was achieved in the face of severe droughts that plagued many producing areas In the Southeast, South, Midwest and Southwest. ' I*ess I^ancl It also \vas accomplished , on about 3 per cent less land than fast, year.. Likewise, farmers had less incentive to produce many commodities than a year earlier because of price declines, increased farm costs and labor shortages. Fortunately, weather damage was largely limited lo hay, livestock forage and feed crops. Tending to offset the effects of the drought, as far as total pro- duction was concerned, was unusually favorable fall harvesting vcather. because of this most crops :urned out to be 'of excellent quality. And harvesting losses were small. The corn crop—the 'most important from the standpoint of Ihc consumer of meat, dairy and poultry products — was the second largest on record. It will furnish enough feed to permit a continued high level of production of meat, milk, poultry and eggs. The wheat crop also was the second largest of record — & fact that raises the prospect of possible government production controls in 1054 if another sizeable harvest is made next year.
