Washington. - Americas harvests this year will be the most valuable a ever produced. With the wheat crop di exceeding a billion bushels, the larg- ac est ever produced is one season by as any nation, and a corn crop which as also may prove to be the largest ever ta grown, the government's October crop be report issued Thursday announoed a preliminary estimates which indicate a' record harvests of oats, barley, rye, sweet potatoes, rice, tobacco and hay. pe Corn still is king of crops with in- ft dications of 3,026,159,000 bushels. at While that is 88,000,000 bushels below in the record of 1912, the final production tt may more than make up the - de- a ficiency. The higher prices this year al assure the most valuable corn crop tt ever grown. At prices to farmers pre- sa vailing October 1. the,corn crop is worth $2,133,000,000. re Wheat prospects increased as the P1 growing season progressed so that the o01 ,preliminary estimate of production F was placed at 1.002.029,000 bushels. bi Wet weather at harvest time, however, w reduced the quality of winter wheat P so that much of it will not Be avail- to able for milling purposes and will ft have to be used for feed. At prices prevailing October 1, the farm value ai of the crop is $910,844,000, consider- I ably more than ever was paid for a oi wheat crop before. a September weather was particularly f destructive to potatoes, causing a rea duction of 37 580,000 bushels, or 10 in per cent, in the forecast of production. Tobacco also suffered from unfavor able conditions, which caused a do crease of 21,619,000 pounds in the pro duction forecast Tobacco, however, promises to ex *sed the record crop of 1909 by 43,000,- t 000 pounds. 0 Oats will exceed the record crop of 1912 by almot -100,000,000 bushels. Barley will exceed its record by 13, 100,000 bushels; sweet potatoes by i 6,000,000. bushels; rice by 50,000 bush- c els, and hay by 8,000,000 tons. Large Depesits of Novacullte Feund.
