COST OF CROWING WHEAT.
Now that tha Govcrnmant haa Axed
tha prle of wheat, both (or tha 1917
ami 19 14 crop, tha question of act
ual coat of production becomes mora
InUreaUnR than aver. What la the
venire coat of producing an acre of
wheatT la a price of approximately
12 a bushel too much? Let ua aee,
A few yeara airo the coat of wheat
waa figured at from f 10.60 to 112.60
n acre, with few estimate run
nine; above or below theme figures.
That coat have greatly increaaed
ainca the beginning of tha European
vrar all must admit.
In round numbers the coat of an
era of wheat avenging IS bushel
la now ' 120, with the chancea for
till greater coat in 1918.
- Here are the figurva showing acre
a coat of wheat in leading winter
wheat State: Man labor 12.8 hours
t 16 cents an hour, $1.92; horse la
bor for 27.3 hours at 1 m cent an
. hour, 3.14; Interest at 6 per cent on
176 land, $4.60; Uvea, 26 cents; up
aeep, SO renta; aeed (lVs bushels)
at 2.26, 13.37; use of machinery,
i"" 80 cents; Ilk pounds of twine at
17 cents, 26 cents; threshing-machino
hire at 6 cents, 76 cents; coal, 16
cents; marketing, HO cents; fertilis
er, 14.00. ToUl $20.24.
That -the figures ate conservative
appear upon tha cl-aest and most
critical study. For instance, the first
item, that of man labor, la certainly
within reason. We ry much doubt
If farm labor can be Had at 16 cents
n Hur. The same conservatism ap
plflo throughout, wrather the item
be coat of twine, thrtshing bill, or
taxes on land. Soma may question
the wisdom of figuring in fertiliser
cost, as nut all farmers uae commer
cial fertilisers for wheat, Thia is
quite true, but all wheat takes plant
food from tha soil
A 16-bushel crop of wheat re
moves In the grain alone, 17.6 pounds
f nitrogen, 2.26 pounds of phosphor
us, and 4 pounds of potassium, liuy
these ingredients and sue how much
jroa will have left out f $4. .
So with 16-bushel crop next year
nd with price of i a bushel, the
wheat grower may realise $9.75 an
era mora than hia wheat cost him,
provided ha haa no bad luck. On
40-acre crop thia U $390. This is
leaa than tha price ct good team.
Surely it is not too much when we
remember that tha wheat grower
takes hia chances against hail and
storm, Hessian fly, and winter-killing.
