BIG WINTER WHEAT
Washington. A huge winter wheat
crop, larger by 80,000,000 bushel than
any yield in the history of American
agriculture was forecast by the depart
ment of agriculture.
The government's appeal, made be
fore the coming of peace was In sight,
ssying sn acreage of 47,500,000 was de
sirable, and the guaranteed price of
$2.20 a buBhel for wheat, stimulated
extraordinary effort on the part of
the farmers, said the department's an
nouncement. As a result, 49,027,000
acres were planted during a long and
almost perfect season,
The fall growing season has been
one of the finest ever known, result
ing In the crop being in the best con
dition ever recorded on December 1,
and giving promise of heavy yields.
Washington showed the largest per
centage of increase In winter wheat
acreage, it being 135 with the acreage
992.000. Iowa showed 100 per cent in
crease with 760,000 acre. In Oregon
and California the condition of the
crop was 100 and th Increase in acre
aga 25 and 42 per cent respectively.
