Total is $12,1)00,001) Less Than Value
of Last Year Produce.
The total alue of Missouri farm
crops for 1913 is ?175,7S7,12C. This is
according to the estimates based upon
reports made to the State Board ot
Agriculture by its more than COO cor
respondents. In this estimate only
the ordinary field crops and vegeta
bles are included. No account is
taken of lie stock, wool, dairy pro
ducts, poultry, orchard products and
many other items that go to make up
the wealth of the Missouri farmer.
The value of the 1913 crop is only
about $12,000,000 less than 1912. The
loss would be greater but for the high
prices now prevailing. The jield of
all crops except wheat and rye was
loner this year. However, much of
the field crops of Missouri is fed to
lie stock and the final value can only
be determined by the returns from
