MARTIN WASHINGTON (AP) — Crop production this year was nearly 3 per cent less than last year, but the overall value was nearly as large. The Agriculture Department's final production report of the year placed the total harvest volume at 109 per cent of the 1957-59 average compared with 112 per cent for last year's record high. This made the 1965 volume the second largest ever produced. The report pot Hw total vilu* of this year's crops at $21,017,940,000 compared with $21,493,217,000 for last year's production. Drought in many areas was given as the major factor in this year's smaller production. The acreage harvested this year was reported at 293 million, up about 1 million from last year. By categories^ feed grain production was down 13 per cent, food grains up 12 per cent, oil seeds—soy beans, flaxseed, cotton seed—about the same, hay and c,orn silage equal to last year's volume, tobacco down 5 per cent, sugar cane and sugar beet crops combined up slightly, dry beans down 14 per cent, the potato crop the smallest in seven years, fresfa vegetable production down 3 per cent, and noncitrus fruits up 7 per cent. As for value, corn was far out in front at $4,050,960,000 compared with $4,486,484,000 last year. Hay was second at $2,691,133,000 compared with $2683,805,000. Cotton, including cotton s«*d, was third at $2,662,000,000 compared with $2,783,000,000 last year. The rapidly expanding soybean crop was fourth in value at $1,835,596,000 compared with $1,755,375,000 in 1963. Then came wheat at $1,405,576,000 compared with $1,663,043,000 last year. After wheat came 'tobacco at $1,307,413,000 compared with $1,351,842,000 last year.
