(UP) — The tlelrt cotloii .situation was fur- Ihcr sieurnvnlcd today wkli rcporlK of ])Uintin^ ilclaj's, bad weather anci the sliortiiKc of fcrllli/jr. " Already fncccl with tlit> sliortt'st cotton carry-over in 18 years, phis expected risiiiB demand, (lie Ayil- cuUiire Dp})nrLtiU'tit is hopeful that furmcTs will plant to tl>u limit. Hut because of record domestic uses and indieatinns thai demand from abroad will remain hiirh, It a|>l>eared that the pinch may be Ihe worst in years. The carry-over, CO per cent less than last year, as cslimitorl by the Agriculture Department, nil! be just under 3,000.000 bales. The Agriculture Dcpurtmem. has asked farmers to plant 23.1QO.S.Oa acres this year. This would he an increase of approximately 25 ptr cent over lust year. Plantiiu last year was 18,100,000 acres, harvested were 17.G14.000 acres. The department previously hoped for production of 12.400.00ii bales. However, bnd weather whlili has set fjt<:k planting schedules u,i to three ^a|s in some areas and hnr, forced ri^ntini; to some extent, indicated that .the goal will not be .reached, cither as to planting or harvest. Production last year wns 0,517,000 bales. Seed Supply Short Indications are that (lie carryover Irom the coming crop year nuiy be even less than that of the current year which ends AUR. 1. Formers, besides cuinplulnlni; of tlie .shuitage o( certain types of fertilizers, also are protesting the high price of seed. In some incus, because of the high price of seed and its shortage, farmers are deliberately holding back on planting until weather conditions arc more certain. Agriculture Department officials in Louisiana are not predicting the si/e ol the crop but say that prospects arc bad nnd will get even worse if heavy rains continue. In the Memphis area, pluntim; is from two weeks to three weeks Ire- hind schedule. In Arkansas it is expected lhat llicrc \yjll he an Increase., of I5 : per cent in planting, compared with last year. Nevertheless, bad weather has set npcnitions Ilark IrJJp a week to 10 days. In the southern section of A-kan- sa-s some good stands have been reported, while in others sonic replanting will be required. Total domestic consumption of cotton thi.s year is estimated by Ihe Agriculture Department at 10,000,000 hales, which is about 1,300.000 bales more than last year's production. Imports are estimated nt 200,000 bales for the crop year, exports at 3,613.000 bales.
