THURSDAY, SUPT15MHKU 11, 11M7 Estimates of'47 Crops Reduced Corn Drops 34 Million Bushels from Aug. 15 Prediction of Yields I ''WASHINGTON. Sept. '11. (U! 1 ) — I The Agriculiuvc Department ycstcr- I day estimated the critical and I drought-hit 1941 corn'crop at 2,403,I COO.OOO bushels. This was a drop of | about 34.000.CCO bushels from the | Aug. lo estimate 1 . i The record \vhciU crop was csti- ?nuted nt 1,408,032.030 bushels coni- . imrcd with the Alls. 1 prediction of 11.435.551.033 bushels and a 1040 har- 1 vest of 1.155.715,000 bushels. • The discouraging corn report Intensified the threat of further retail price ineicn.sc.-i in this country and possible sharp cutbacks in food shipments to Eurcpc. Even Hie huge wheat crop could not offset the disastrous effects of the s>ooi' corn crop. i Tlic |KX>r corn crop means a crlt- ] ical world shorlneR of Brain and I higher prices for all domestic grains. \ This', in turn, wilt mean higher Prices for meat and other coiutnmii- lies depending on grain. Cuts Wheat Shipments . It also will reduce the amount of I wheat tins country salcly can spare I to deficit food areas abroad with- I out losing cur own economic balance. 1 Tlic tiew corn estimate was based I on crop conditions Sept. 1. It did I not 'reflect possible inroads made I in Ihc crop by drought since then, lit compared with an 'Aug. 15 csti- linalc of 2.437,CC1,000 bushels. I The crop was almost certain to I be the smallest since the critical I drought year 1936, barring an ftl- 1 most miraculous improvement dnr- I ing the few remaining \vceks of I the growing season. I The crop compared witli the rc- L-ord 19!B production of 3,287.927.000 Fiushels and an average output, of 12,639,102.000 bushels during Hie 101 year period 1936-45. As for wheat, the harvest now is ! virtually complete. There probably I will be Httle clmnge in the harvest I estimates from here on in. 1 Spring wheat production was es- I timatcd at 312,S54.00a bushels com- I pared with 343.423,000 bushels in I 1946.
