Cannes for price decline nre Increasing production and decreased purchasing power. World produc-tion Is expanding and ox- port competition becjoinlng keener. , Competition Is not as ncutu for sum- j mer oranges ns for winter oranges. Shipments of summer oranges, mainly Valencia*, have been increasing rap- ldlj-4 Exclusive of 1HK2 plantings, 18 per cent of California's summer orange acreage is still to come Into bearing. Production of California plum* la nearlng a peak. Xo immediate prospect, however, exists for better prices unless economic conditions change materially. Because of keen competition from other canned fruits, canning doe» not afford outlets () f substantial proportions for California plums.' Poultry anil Eggs Egg production in fhe United .Suites In 1933 is expected' to be somewhat larger than last year. Supplies of < j ggs available for consumption during the spring months of I'.'SH will probably be reduced, and incren.sed during fall aud winter months. Number of layers In farm flocks on January 1, was sllghtly'larger th;ni a year earlier. It Is probable the number of chlckena hatched this spring will bo Increased. Supplies of lamb reaching »asl>>rn markets during the California lamb- nmrketlng season arc likely to be smaller In 1P33 tlmn last yoa'r. Number of lambs on feed for market Is considerably below that of a year ago. No Increase In size of the California lamb crop Is expected. Kffnct of reduction In suppllen should be reflected In better prices, but price Improvement may be largely offset by Jack of purchasing power. Wheat Heavy stocks of wheat, at the beginning of the 1933-34 season, will again burden tho world wheat mnrket as well as the American market. Some prospect, however, is In sight, that tho 1933-34 world production will bo somewhat smaller than It was last year. Coming yields may not bo as high as they were in 1933. Over a period of years, gradual recovery Is to be expected from the present situation of burdensome stocks nnd disastrously low prices. No Information on the Russian situation Is available.
