Throughout June better weather con
ditions Increased tbe prospects of the
output of every important crop. Tbe
improvement was reflected In a fore
cast of 28.000,000 bushels more In the
combined winter and spring wheat
crop than estimated a month ago;
seven million bushels more oats, 8.
000,000 bushels more barley and 2.000,
000 bushels more rye.
The spring wheat crop Is larger
than last year's by 82,000,000 bushels,
but the winter wheat crop is 114,000,
000 bushels smaller, although It is
only 45,000,000 less than tbe five-year
average production.
Wheat of last year's crop remaining
on farms July 1 was reported as 47,
756.000 bushels, or more than five per
cent of the crop. That, added to this
year's prospective production, makes
available about 856,000,000 bnshels of
wheat which, according to officials,
will be ample to meet domestic re
quirements and leave a surplus for ex
port. The condition of tbe corn crop waa
reported not so good as a year ago,
but the area planted shows an in
crease of 71,000 acres. Indications are
that the crop will be 138,000,000
bushels smaller but 19,000,000 busbela
larger than the five-year average.
