WASHINGTON (AP) - Fanners are expected to harvest a record 1,612,000,000 bushels of winter wheat this year, up 27 per cent from 1973's record crop, the Agriculture Department has estimated. The Crop Reporting Board's estimate Wednesday was 7 per cent larger than it projected last December in its initial wheat report. It came.on the eve of the main new-crop harvest, with the United States expected to have the lowest yearend stocks in 22 years. The wheat season officially begins July 1, but full-scale cutting is near in the south-central states, where the crops were reported Tuesday as being in good shape and developing at a MINNEAPOLIS GRAIN MARKET (May9) MINNEAPOLIS, Minn.

The new estimate, based on May 1 field conditions, shows support for Nixon administration calls for all-out crop production this year to meet rising domestic and foreign demand. The department has been predicting a total 1974 wheat crop of between 2.0 and 2.1 billion bushels, based on 18 per cent more plantings last fall of the winter wheat. Planting of all wheat, officials have said, is expected to total almost 71 million acres, the largest in 20 years. Winter wheat is the major bread ingredient and tight flour supplies earlier this year sparked disputes over possibly higher bakery prices, but the important grain does not bear as directly on over-all supermarket prices as some other crops. . Prospects for those spring- planted 1974 crops, particularly corn and soybeans which are significant factors in the production and price of meat, milk and poultry, will not be clearly estimated for several months. The board, however, has reported that farmers intended to plant 4 per cent more acres in the 16 major crops this year — 14 per cent more than in 1972. Sharp decreases are anticipated in soybeans and barley, with boosts for corn, most spring wheat and cotton. I^ast year's wheat crop was about 1.7 billion bushels. Ixitest LSDA estimates arc that, by July 1, between 1.16 billion and 1.2 billion bushels of that will have been exported. It foresees a July 1 carryover of old wheat of only 170 million bushels, down from 438 million last year and 863 two years ago. The indicated production of winter wheat and average yields for 1974 by major pro- .status included: Pennsylvania, 11,900,000 bushels and 35 bushels per acre; Ohio 09,300,000 and 45; Indiana 63,000,000 and 45; Illinois 08,-000,000 and 40; Michigan :W,-<IOO,000 and 40; Missouri 44,400,-000 and 37; Soulh Dakota 31,-314,000 and 34.
