WASHINGTON (UP) — The Agriculture Department said today prices paid by farmers for goods and services used in production are about 5 per cent higher this spring than a year ago. Fertilizer Is the only important farm-production cost item that has not had a net increase in price in Ihe last year, Ihc deparlmenl said in Us publication, "The Farm Cost Situation." * The department said interest rates on new loans aro "substantially" higher. Cost rates and prices paid by farmers for major groups of production items this spring compared with a year earlier: Feeder livestock, up 11 per cent; farm real estate and molor vehicles, up 7 per cent each; molor supplies, farm machinery, and farm real estate taxes per acre, up 5 per cenl each; farm supplies, seed, and wage rales, up 4 per cent each; building and fencing materials, up 3 per cent; and feed, up 2 per cent. Interest rates charged farmers on both farm mortgage loans and non-real estate loans continued lo increase during 1950. The rale on new farm mortgage loans generally increased from 1% to 1 per cnnt during the year. Most federal land banks now are charging ^5 ' per cent compared with 4 per cent a year ago. Rates commonly charged by life Insurance companies are about 1 per cent above a year earlier with now loans bearing a 5 to 5'A per cent rate. The Interest rates charged farmers by the principal lending insti- tulion for non-real estate loans increased from an average of about 0,3 per cent during 1955 to an average of 0.5 per cent during WOO. The department said stale and local property taxes payable by farmers in 1057 are expected to total about $1,200,000,000, or 5 per cent more than in 1950. The rise for real estate taxes probably will b<> -aboul 0 per cenl. -Little or no increase is expected for personal property taxes. The expected properly tax payment of $1,200,000,000 compares with 900 .million 'dollars in 1950 and BOO million dollars in 1945.

Farm wage rates have risen more than 300 per cent, whereas prices for fertilizer have advanced about 53 per cent. Gasoline prices lave gone up about H4 per cenl. ['he cosl of elcclricily per kilowatt nour has declined about 25 per cenl ,ince 1940. The department said lolal investment in farm buildings, machinery, and equipment was less in 1956 than in any year since 1047. The amount invested, however, apparently was sufficient lo offset depreciation charges. From 1()4<! lo 1950, farmers spent about 45 billion dollars on major improvements and additions lo plant ann equipment. This was about 14 billion dollars more than the estimated 31 billion dollars required to cover depreciation. Farm cost rales this spring are slightly higher in relation to prices received ihan Ihey were a year ago. The present relationship is about equal to the overage that prevailed in 1935-39 ar.d during the 20-year period immediately preceding World War If. It is substantially less favorable to farmers, however, than it was during World War IT and for nearly 10 years t hereafter. Cost rales, as measured by the index ot production goods, interest, • taxes, and wage rates, are about 37 per cent higher now than 10 years ago, but prices received by farmers are about the same as Ihey were then. The Increase in farm wage rales iTanges from 2 per cent in the I Mountain stales lo 6 per cent in New England. As of April 1, farmers in Ihe Pacific slales were paying higher average rales for hired labor than in other regions. Wages per monm wilh board and room averaged $194 in those states, compared with $1211 for the country as a whole.
