aggregate per acre yields of all crops

than last year's yield. t~bout. 2.3 per

age, hut nearly 5 per cent smaller
than in 1912, which y'ear stands as
the record for large crop yIelds. The
early part of' the liesent setason was
rathe' tin fa vorable to crop growth,
the early summer being severely hot
and dry in many state. As the sea
son progressed, however prospects
improved and the final outturn of
crops is better thant had been fore
cast at any lime (luring tile growing
season. The Improving tendency of
the season may be seen from the
monthly forecast of production from
the condition reports. From July 1
to the time of harvest nearly all
crops showed an enlari'gement in tile

Prices which producers are receiv

higher than received from last year's

and a marked decline in the price of
cotton. On the basis of prices pre
valling on November 1, 1911, and on
November 1, 1913, the total valua
tion of crop production in 1914 of 12
leading crops is 2.1 per cent higher

As a result of the war in E'urope, a
world-wide tendency exists to in
crease the acreage of wheat for the
1915 harvest. If prevailing sentiment
should be realized doubtless the most
extensive area in the history of the
world will be seeded during the pres
ent autumn and coming spring. The
tendency is universal. A prospective
heavy demand for this important
food grain by the importing countries
of western Europe is likely, if seed
ing conditions favor, to give extra
ordinary stimulus to sowings of both
winter and spring varieties in the
two great exporting countries of
North America, and to thoso sowing
now being finished under auspicious
circunstances In British India. In
the southern hemisphere seeding was
completed before the war began, and
the effect of present economic condi
tions upon extension of areas there
will be .manifest only in the spring and
summer of 1915. It is pertinent to
note, however, that the extent of
land now u1ldir wheat ii .\rgentina
for the approaching Im idwinter har
vest is, owing to a wet seedtime 761,
000 acres less tiam that of last year
and tiat the growing Ansiait crop
has been so reduced by drougiht that
there will he little or iole for export.
