KOSSUTH'S 4,245 FARMERS FINDING JOB DIFFICULT Shortage of Farm Labor An Increasing Problem; Higher Farm Wages, Limited Machinery Prevention of waste in food distribution will be a vital fatetor in the effort'-of Kossuth county's 5,093 farm operators and workers tc achieve their war-time harvest goals it was indicated today in a survey by a leading distributor of Iowa farm produce. I At least hailf of the estimated $1,400,000 annually lost from spoll- , age and damage to matured Iowa fruits and vegetables alone can be prevented, by the .use of better grading, packing and by .better and more direct distribution methods, Karl R. French, marketing director of the Atlantic Commission Company, A. & P. produce buying affiliate, declared - in the survey's summary. He indicated that further savings could be realized from Improved handling of other Iowa farm products. .4,246 Farm Family Workers •''If Kossuth county flaijmers, working' with distributors, cut by half the average 10 to 12 per cent of fruit and -vegetable shipments lost through damage jand spoilage, they will have achieved the equivalent of a 5 to 6 per cent increase in production without any extra acreage, equipment or farm labor," French saUd. "Under war-time conditions, use of efficient handling methods on the farm and utilization of efficient distribution channels such as those developed by, chain stores is becoming "increasingly important," he continued. "For example, Kossuth, county 4.245 farm fanu.fcr workers have found their job of increasing production made more difficult •because of the shorter farm labo supply, higher farm wages and limited availability of farm machinery and supplies. 848 Hired Hands "The latest census^ counted 843 regular hired-hands in the county Since'that count was made, fairm .labor has decreased .as,much w as 89' percent 1n .certain^Ireas 'and up to 28 per cent in' some Iowa districts," French said. But despite the labor curtailment, he said, past performance indicates the farmer can approach food pro ductlon goal. In ten years, covered by recent government reports, the farmer had increased his productive efficiency by 25.2 per cent. The average farmers, the survey revealed, fed 11.7 persons in 1929 and ten years later was feeding 14.1 persons from his fields.
