The story of the manufaoture of farming equipment during the year 1920 contains soire striking facts in addition to showing what a colossal business this is in the United States. In round numbers the value of the farm machinery made for farm. ers amounted to $537,000,000 more that half a' billion. And the startling thing about it is that a machine unknown a few years ago comprised more than one-third the value of all the implements made. This is the gas tractor, the feature of the market. The value of gas tractors made last year was over $180,000,000. The making of steam traction engines has not been abandoned, for there were about $5,000,000 worth of these furnished the farmers, but the figures show that it was a small item compared with the gas tractors. Next to the tractor came the plow, for ages the symbolof farm. ing. The value of the plows made was more than-845,000,000. But close to the plows came harvest ing machinery which represented a value of more than $41,000,000. Haying machinery came high with a value of $25,000,000, while planting machinery was close be hind with price tags totaling $20, 000,000. But all this machinery made to tickle the soil into fruitful smiles did not go to the farmers in this country. We manufacture for the farmers of the world. Progressive and up-to-date cultivators of Europe have long known that the place to get the best farm machin. ery was in the UJnited States. They have been coming to us for years, and they did not forget the way last year, in spite of the slimness of their purse. And the article that led here led in the rest of the world. The val. ue of the foreign sales of tractors was more than $30,000,000, nearly oneesixth of the total output. Next came plows, which exported to the tune of $19,000,000--nearly one-half of the output of the faotoriel here, Theiit&ýý of the foreign demand was in the line of harvesting machinery which was taken to the amount of $7,000,000.
