10 Golesburg Register-Moil, Golesbufg, Tuesday, Oct 8, 1963. Eye Weather In Russian Crop Prospect WASHINGTON (UPI) - A government specialist on Soviet agriculture said today that Russian efforts to s(cp up wheat production next year will depend heavily on the weather. Soviet leaders already have begun urging farmers to make an all-out effort to plant winter grain crops. This is part of the campaign to recover from the years of low production which recently forced the Russians to buy large quantities of wheat from Canada and Australia. The shortages also have led to reports that the Soviet Union may move to buy American wheat. Soviet Premier Nikila Khrushchev has called for a massive campaign to increase production of fertilizer and other farm technology tools, steps to make Russian crops less liable to damage in years of bad or sub-normal weather conditions. Requires Few Years An Agriculture Department specialist said, however, that even a crash program of improved farm technology would take two or three years to make itself felt in Soviet farming. For the next several years, the expert said, Russian success in boosting crop production will hinge on thr weather. The Agriculture Department's SIDE GLANCES By GUI Fox id-a • HP to WW, Hc.TM. »M, Mi. t*. tm. "Matter of fact, I AM baby-sitting my way through school, but I wouldn't want the word to get around.'" is now the only major wheat exporting country which has large supplies available for export this season. Canada's export sales to the Soviet Union and other customers are already big enough to tax Canadian port and delivery facil ities. Australia, which is about to figures indicate Soviet farmers in | harvest its wheat crop, already recent years have been planting about three times as much wheat acreage as the United States. About 156 million acres were planted in Russia in 1961 compared with 51.5 million acres in the United States the same year. Khrushchev recently told U.S. Agriculture Secretary Orville L. Freeman that the Russians might drop wheat production on some of their marginal lands and concentrate instead on trying to raise yields on their better farms. Some American experts now think that the 1964, at least, the Russians may keep their marginal wheat acreage in production and gamble on the chance of good weather. The Soviet wheat acreage is so big that a yield increase of even a few bushels an acre could make a great difference in the harvest. The Agriculture Department said today that the United States has sold most of it. And Argentina, the world's other major wheat exporting nation, is currently maturing a crop which does not appear big enough for heavy exports. That summary came from the department which said world demand for American wheat in the current marketing season obviously will set a new record. The present record for American wheat exports is 719 million bushels. The department report said the total world wheat harvest this year was close to record levels. But the report added there were some unusual situations this year —a drop in Soviet production, and a Western European wheat crop which may be 300 minion bushels below last year's harvest.
