frown's Bylines i '*» ' Wheat Producer Faces Future Problems Tough Dob Bro*n Farm Agent 'D A'head for the wheat plo- tlticer? At present, ha is faCad with plenty of problems but the future rriay bring more complex ones, in the opinion of Norman V. Whitehair, extension grain marketing statist at fe&hsks State University In Mahha'ttaft. For example, this year's pro- ductiom if it is another riea<r- record as presently indicated, will add to the surplus problem. V/ith normal dis- pflSitiion tHe carryover July 1, I960, is expected tti Be 6V6f lOD million bushels above the 1,285,000,00(5 • bushel carryover this July 1. Whitehair quotes graifi men a* optimistic about lite storage situation. They and farmers,' he said, have done an outstanding job in providing grain storage space. It is in another area that pro ducels may bfe alfeci.e'd increasingly in the future. This is. the recognitioh gr&irt btiyiSfS afte giving to the field of merchandising. The clay when "wheat is wheat" is last disappearing, the K-State economist b e 1 ie v e si. Elevators from the so-called "country" to terminal size Jlre installing grading equipment. With it grain buy ers will select wheat on the bash of its quality for milling into bread flour. Producers who do not meet milling flour specifications Have grain that isn't in de mand. If (Ms grain has to go as feed grain because it doesn't mee 1 Pure Food and Drug Act regula tionfe or because it is mercury treated (pink wheat) it may b discounted as much as 70 cents a bushel. Lower protein, lower test weight, samples containing foreign material and yellow berry wheat will be discounted. Lower p'Hces have ixan paid for such wheat, btit Whitehair said, these degrading factor's will carry even wider discounts. "The merchandising operations df grain dealers are closely tied in with their buying activittes, and iii buying grain they must know of existitig arid antcpated markets where they may be able to sell the grain. Most of our major grain dealers in Kansas already are and have for some time been wheat merchandisers. However, storage operations have de-emphasizetl merchandising. The trend is to bin, separate and grade wheat so specific orders of millers for brcpd-type grain ran te filled." WhifeHalr added that Kansas wheat producers arc in a good position so far as demand for milling wheat is concerned. The state now produces the high quality hard red winter wheat ussd bj millers in bread baking. Of the 500 million bushels o wheat used annually for food in this country and by its armec force's, approximately 375 million bushels is bakery flour whea coming from hard red winter anc hard red spring wheats. Another 105 millioh bushsls go into family flour which takes a lower protein Kansas and the Southwest are ow supplying tite rriajflr shift 61 he wheat used in bread »nd iftJad flrodudts. td fetalfi this narket will requini the produc- iori df the type of wheat graili merchandisers must have to fill Checking Streams For Radioactivity News From 4<H Clubs Of This Area TOPEKA ±- Seven joints have been set up on Kan 4as rivers to keef> it close watch on any increasing radioactivity in the streams^ The State Board of Health said the stations pay particular atten tibri to industrial plants that rriay dUWt> fadidaetive waste into the iVers.

Even if the goverftrrieht's prici support, acreage allotment arid stofage refital prdgranis continue as at presentt he, foresees trpiibifc ahead for the Kansas WhSat firmer who does not produce a qiial- .ty grain and maintain its quality while it is in 'storage.
