Most prosperous of all years Is the
place to which 1909 Is entitled In ag
ilculture, declares tne Secretary ol'
Agriculture in his Thirteenth Annual
Report, made public today. The val
ue of farm products Is so Incompre
hensibly large that It has become
merely a row of figures. For this
venr it Is $8,760,900,000 a gain of
$809,00,0.000 over 1908. The value
of the product has nearly doubled
In ten years. The report says, "11
years of agriculture, beginning with
a production of $14,417,000,000 and'
clldllltf with $,7CO,C0O 000! A sum
of $70,000,000 for the period! It has
paid off mortgages, it has established
banks, it has made belter homes, It
has helped to make the farmer a cit
izen of the world, and It has provid
ed hlm with means for improving his
soil and making It more productive."
The most striking fact in lie
world's agriculture Is the value of the
corn crop for 1909, which Is about
$1,720,000,000. It nearly equals the
value of the clothing and personal
adornments of 76,000,000 people, ac
cording to the census of 1900. The
gold and silver coin and bullion of
the United States are not of greater
value. It has grown up from the soil
and out of the air in 120 days $15,
000,000 a day for one crop, nearly
enough for two Dreadnaughts dally
"or peace or war. This crop exceeds
In value the average of the crops of
the five preceeding years by 38 per
Cotton Is now the second crop in
value, and this year's cotton crop Is
easily the most valuable one to the
farmer that has been produced. With
cotton lint selling at 13.7 cents on
the farm November 1 and with cot
ton seed selling for about $25 per
ton, the lint and seed ot this crop
are worth about $850,000,000 to the
farmer. No cotton crop since 1S73
has been sold by farmers for as high
a price per pound as this one.
Third in vaiue Is wheat, worth
about $725,000,000 at the farm, and
this largely exceeds all previous val
ues. The November tarm price was
almost an even dollar a bushel, a
price which has not been equalled
since 1881. This Is the third wheut
crop of point in size with 725,000,00
The hay crop is valued at $005,
000,000; onts at $40,000,000; pota
toes at $212,000,000, and tobacco
at nearly $ 1 00,000.000. Hoet and
cane sugar and molasses and sirup,
from farm and factorv, will reach
the total of about $95,000,000. The
barlev crop Is worth .8,00.,,000
llaxseed $30,000,000. and l.uOo.OOO,
000 pounds of rice $25,0uO,'lon.
The production of all cereals com
bined is 4,71 1,000,000 busnels, an
amount considerably greater than
that for any other year except 1906.
It exceeds the average t f the proceed
ing five years by 6.5 per cent. The
value of all cereals in 190'1 has 'if vnr
been equalled in a previous venr. It
is almost exactly $3,000,000,000, or
34 per cent above the live-year aer
age. Compared with the avetage of the
previous five years, all principal crops
are greater in quantity this ye.ir ex
cept cotton, llaxseed, hops, and cane
ugnr; b.it without exception every
crop is worth more to the farmer
than the five-year average.
This. is the year .of highest produc
tion for potatoes, tobacco, beet sugar,
all sugar and r'ce: next to the hlf-'hesl
production for corn, oats, and all cer
ealB. Compared with 1908, gains In
val je are found all along the Hue,
the exceptions being t.iarley. ''iick
wheat, rye and milk. The increase
fir cotton, lint and seed, is $208,

equipment offarm machinery for
over 8,000.000 farms. The value of
the careal crops to the farmer would
pay for all of the machinery, tools,
and implements of the entire manu-:
facturing Industry. The value of all
crops, $0,700,000,000, would make
a half payment on the value of all
steam railroads, according to the val
uation of 1904.
Secretary Wilson concludes his re
view of the production of 1909 as
follows: "The agricultural production
of 1909 must add much to the pros
perity of farmers. Ttw record is nn
