Further Corn Crop Decline Predicted Sundav G BOONE, Iowa - tfi - A further dediae in the nation's eon erop was predicted Saturday, but the National Cora Growers Association says a record crop is still possible. "Excellent rains did occur in some badly hit drought areas in the past months, but too late to be of much help in bringing back yields," said Walter Goeppinger, chairman of the association. Surveys show a 177 million bushel reduction in production from the U. S. Agricul- ture Department's Aug. 1 forecast of 5.85 oillMB bushels, Goeppinger said. "Cora's advanced condition makes frost damage remote," he said, noting a large further decline in the corn crop is unlikely. "A 5.67 billion bushel corn crop would still surpass the previous record of 5.64 billion bushels set in 1973," Goeppicger said. He said Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, Ohio, South Kakota, Tennessee and Wisconsin registered declines in corn prospects totaling 237 million bush- els in the last But be said the outlook in Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, North Carolina and Texas increased 60 million bushels. 'This now drops the national average yield to 84.8 bushels per acre from our Aug. 1 estimate of 86.4 bushels and USDA's 87.4," Goeppinger said The record com crop will result not because of increased yields throughout the corn belt, but because more acreage has been planted this year after last year's disastrous crop, crop experts say. Corn crops are reported in excellent shape east of the Mississippi River, but west of the Mississippi a July drought was disastrous to the corn crop. Iowa, which traditionally far out-produces other states, is expected to be behind Illinois in corn production this year for the fourth time in historv. Sunday Gazette-Mail ii SKoaO c^ii maiv* Â»!
