Brownlee Manila; Bruce Farm Productivity Increases As Agriculture Modernizes The nation's farmers by their enterpj-jse and initiative have achieveU remarkable advances in crop and livestock productivity in the last decade in a modernisation program that is comparable in many ways to the great forward strides in industrial and business techniques in the same period. Indicative of this increased agricultural efficiency is the fact that between 1B39 and 19*5 alone gross production per farm worker increased 28 per cent as compared wilh only 18 per cent in the period between 1917-21 and 1039. Farm workers have matched industrial workers in their productivity increases during the last decade, according to the Ufi. Department of Agriculture. The results have had a far-reaching impact on national welfare and nn the living standards and financial security of the average Amcr- Jjuyi farm family. ^ Factors Krhintl Progrean Much of this progress has come from the great growth of mechanization of farm operations and the substitution of machine for animal power. Important contributions to the overall results have been made BS well by perfection of methods for increasing yields of both crops and livestock and by development of better and more efficient /arming practices in general. .11 Ls- this development along witn favorable weather which made it possible for the American farmer despite manpower and other shortages, to meet the record needs r^r ': farm products at home and abroad i during the war and to hc'.p feed a !" hungry world since then. ( J What makes the record so out- i standing is that the total acreage ! harvested has changed little since i the first World War and the farm '• much again total farm production as it did in the 1911-21 period, according to Government agricultural experts. II farmers in the last fe* years had farmed the same as they did in the world War I period, and gotten the same yields a then, Ihey would have needed 4,500,000 .more workers ro achieve Ihe production totals ol the wartime period and since.
