By DON KENDALL AP Farm Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - If farmers come through with a record corn crop of G.7 billion bushels, prices could tumble to less than $2 per bushel next fall, says the Agriculture Department.

Nationally, corn prices at the farm averaged a record S2.76 per bushel for the MINNEAPOLIS GRAIN MARKET (May 17) M1NNEAP01JS, Minn.

" 'Hie look ahead to a possible record corn harvest next fall and prospective declines in prices were included Thursday in a feed-grain analysis by the department's Outlook and Situation Board. "Feed-grain prices will remain sensitive to crop prospects this spring and summer," the report said. "If the corn crop totals around the 6.7 billion bushels projected, corn prices at the farm at harvest may drop below $2 a bushel, but still be higher than prices at harvest in most recent years." Last November, farm prices of corn nationally averaged S2.18 per bushel and then rose to $2.39 in December, according to USDA calculations. In November 1972, before a huge export market fully developed, corn brought farmers mi average of SI.20 per bushel. The report Thursday repeated earlier department indications that farmers intend to plant 12G.3 million acres of feed grain this year — including corn, oats, barley, and sorghum — which would be a 4 per cent boost from 1973. Officials also noted the corn reserve next Oct. 1. at the bc- siiuniiiM of the 1974-75 crop year, is expected to be drained to 450 million bushels, compared with more than 700 million carried over hist fall.
