Fertility is Increasing Owing to Im
proved Methods One-Half the To
tal Farm Area Highly Improved
Greatest Increase In Farm Area In
The average size of farms for the
country as a whole was greater In
Ibim than In 1S90. This is, of course,
a mathematical corollary of tho fact
that the farm acrenge increased fast
er than tho number of farms.
It has already been pointed out.
however, that the additions to the
farm acreage Included large tracts of
unimproved land in the Western
states, used as grazing farms. While
this has materially affected the av
erage size of farms for tho country
ns a whole, in the older portions or the
country there nre no indications of
any general movement toward a con
solidation of farms, or of any tenden
cy on the part of farmers toward the
cultivation of larger farms.
In the northern states east of tin
Mississippi there was no very marked
change in tho size of farms: Massa
chusetts, rtliodo Island. Pennsylvania
New Jersey, Ohio, Indiana ai d I'll
nois showed a slight diminution In
the average farm area, while tho
other states in this region showed a
In the southern statos i,i-t o1' it
Mississippi, on tho other hand, the
increase in the number of farms far
exceeded the Increase in farm area
and consequently the average size 01
farms was materially diminished
Only one-half of the total farm
acreage in 1000 was reported ns lm
proved, but this represents a gain
over 18!)0 of 57.17G.43G acres. Most
of the Increase In the crop-producing
area of the country was contributed
by the states of the Middle West, the
greatest extension being shown in
Minnesota, whoro the Increase during
the decade exceeded 7,000,000 acres.
Increases of between 4,000,000 and 5,
000,000 acres were reported for Iowa,
North Dakota and Oklahoma.
On the other hand, in many states
the area of Improved farm land was
smaller in 1P00 than In 1890. A de
crease Is shown in all the North At
lantic states, especially in No v En?
This is due principally to n change
In the kind of farming carrl,l on in
those states; the raising o? corn and
wheat for the market, having become
comparatively unpiofitable under the
influence of Western competition, has
been largely superseded by dairy
farming and market gardening.
In these pursuits, which are, of
course, stimulated by tne proximity
of a largo urban population, the East
ern farmer apparently finds It to Ills
advantage to cultivate less land than
he once did, but to cultivate It more
intensively. Accordingly, the less fer
tile lands, and the meadow lands
that cannot be mown with machines,
have in many cases been converted
Into permanent pastures.
The Increased average fertility of
the land retained under cultivation,
the use of the silo and the growing
tendency to cultivate corn and forage
crops, instead of hay, for winter food,
are all factors which contribute to
the same end enabling the farmer to
raise on a smaller area the winter
feed for the animals that can be kept,
during the summer, on the enlarged
area of pasture land. Hon, W. It.
