Country Normally Would Need Every
Bushel Now in Prospect, leav

Washington, D. C. — Official wheat
crop estimates announced Thursday
show that with the world facing a
bread shortage, the United States, un
less it cuts its present consumption,
probably will produce only enough
wheat this year to supply its own
The forecast, compiled by the de
partment of Agriculture on conditions
May 1, put this country’s winter wheat
yield at 366,000,000 bushels, the small
est in 13 years. There will be no
estimate of spring wheat acreage until
July, but with a crop of 250,000,000
bushels, which is higher than the aver
age, this country would grow this year
a total of only 616,000,000 bushels.
The normal American consumption
with seed requirements is put at
slightly more than 600,000,000.
The estimated production this year
of 366,000,000 bushels of winter wheat
falls 116,000,000 bushels short of last
year’s poor crop. It is 129,000,000
bushels less than the average for the
preceding five years.
Reserve stocks are said to be lower
than at any previous time at this
season. The visible supply is put
now at 30,000,000 bushels, with a
somewhat larger invisible supply. The
lowest visible stock ever reported in
the United States was 6,000,000 bush
els on July 1 two years ago. When
harvesting of the new crop begins
July 1 it is estimated that the reserve
will be even lower than that.
The allies’ wheat requirements for
the coming year are put at 500,000,000
bushels as a minimum. The United
States will be asked to supply more
than half of that amount. Wheat
crops in other parts of the world are
poor. The Argentine crop failed, and
home consumption will require the en
In a statement accompanying its re
port, the Agricultural department de
clared that although the winter wheat
crop condition is the poorest on record,
crop conditions otherwise are favor
Herbert C. Hoover, chairman of the
food committee of the Council of Na
tional Defense, who is strongly in fa
vor of a more limited use of wheat in
this country, appeared before the sen
ate agriculture committee and urged a
separte department of the government
to deal with the food question.
