Farm Roundup Record Corn Crop Distinct Possibility FARM ROUNDUP By OVID A. MARTIN WASHINGTON W — A record corn crop this year is a distinct jossibility, although the Kennedy Administration lias offered producers around $750 million to hold down output. The Agriculture Department's irst corn forecast for the year, made early this month, was 6 per cent larger than last year's far- above average crop and only 1.5 per cent below the record crop of 3,908,000,000 produced in 1960. But weekly weather and crop bulletins issued by the U.S. Weather Bureau since the first estimate was made emphasize favorable conditions for corn. If the weather continues favorable for another three or four weeks, the crop could easily top the previous record. Before planting time, farmers signed to retire 17,7 million acres of corn land in return for payments on the retired land and price supports—a part of which vill be in payments—on the corn .hey produced on land kept in iroduction. This left about 61 million acres of corn for harvest, compared ivith 71 million for the record 1960 crop. But this reduction in acreage appears likely to be offset by an increased yield per acre', reflecting increased use of fertili- ;ers and improvements in cultural practices. It is possible that increases will shown in the production of other feed grains, such as sor- ;hum grains, barley and oats. The net result could be a total feed grain crop sufficient to meet needs for the coming year. If thi nappened, the goal of the feed ;rain payment program in helping reduce the big grain surplus would go unaccomplished.
