Wheat Harvest Ahead of 1964 LANSING (AP) — Michigan's wheat harvest is ahead of last i year with nearly half of the I acreage harvested by this week.' Some southern counties almost 1 had completed the harvest, said the Federal-State Crop Reporting Service. The oat harvest also was started in southern counties. Good progress was being made in the winter barley harvest as most southern counties finished combining. The dry weather that advanced the harvest was holding back growing crops. Most counties in the southern two-thirds of the state have been experiencing a moisture shortage for at least two weeks. A few counties have been continuously short for more than a month. Corn and early beahs continued to make good progress except in those counties most seriously hit by dry weather. Late planted beans were growing slowly and stands were uneven. Pasture growth and second crops of hay were held back by the drought. Corn was affected in most areas as leaves started to roll. Most active growing crops were in need of rain. The tart cherry harvest continued in volume. The harvest was nearing completion in southwestern Michigan and was starting in volume in the northwest section. The early peach and apple har- vest had started in the southwest. Blueberries and raspberries continued to move to market in volume amounts. The digging of potatoes was increasing in volume in Bay County. The celery and lettuce harvests continued. The supplies of green beans, slicer cucumbers, sweet corn, tomatoes and other vegetables continued to increase.
