Huge Increase In
U. S. Department Os Agrfcul-*
tore Says Increase Must
Reach 67 Per Cent By
1975 To Meet Needs .
The Department of Agriculture
is warning Americans that there
must be a huge increase in farm
production to prevent hunger
among the millions of people being
added to U. S. population.
The increase is the fastest u.
history because people are living
longer than ever before and more
babies are being born.
The Production and Marketing
Administration has drawn a time
table showing how much more the
farmers must produce by 1975 if
the population expands only to a
The officials estimate that by
1975 the production of all farm
commodities will have to be in
creased about 67 per cent (more
than two-thirds) above what it
was before World War 11. This
means an increase of about 20 per
cent above 1950.
Here are some samples of how
much extra food would have to be
produced to meet this goal:
5 1-2 billion pounds of beef, veal,
pork, lamb and mutton.
30 billion pounds of milk.
15 billion more eggs.
This time table is based on esti
mates that the total U. S. popula
tion in 1975 will be around 190
million people, a 38 million in
Agriculture officials say the
problem of feeding all of these ex
tra people is complicated because
croplands already are being used
to feed today’s nooulation.
In 'oast years it was possible
simply to open up new farm lands
to feed the increasing population.
But with almost ail of the good
crop land occupied farmers now
are faced with the job of increas
ing the production of each acre, so
it will feed more people.
' Canfsrmers continue tdexpand
production? Or will some Ameri
cans have to go hungry because
there will be too many of them
in 1975 to live off the land?
The group of PMA experts takes
an optimistic viewpoint, but tney
say the farmer must keep abreast
of scientific developments if every
one is to be fed as well as he ft
They say that if all the known
good farming practices are applied
to all U. S. farms it will boost pro
duction per acre tremendously.
And they believe the scientists
haven’t exhausted all possibilities
cause almost all of America’s good
for improving crops and livestock;
they think many great advancments
lie in the future.
They give these samples of what
has been done:

able in a year in West Virginia,

beef, it is the equivalent of 1 1-2,
