Is Forcccst Fcr State
670,000 Bales Estimated,
48 More i nan Har
vested Last Year
North Carolina can look forward
this year to a bumper cotton crop
and tobacco production well above
the ten-year average.
This is revealed in the latest fore
casts of the Federal-State Crop Re
porting Service. On the basis of
August 1 conditions, the state's cotton
crop is estimated to 670,000 bales, 48
per cent more than last' year's har
vested crop and second only to the
1944 record crop of 710,000 bales.
This year's cotton yield was esti
mated at 446 pounds of lint per acre,
as compared with 335 pounds last
year, a ten-year average of 335
pounds and the 1944 record of 454
In announcing the forecast, Ray B.
Converse, federal statistician assign
ed to the North Carolina Department
of Agriculture, pointed out that
weather conditions to August 1 had
been favorable for cotton growth and
had retarded the development of toll
weevils. He warned, however, that
weevils were beginning to spread
more rapidly in some sections. ,
Flue-cured tobacco production for
the state was estimated at 678,950,000
pounds, as compared with 892,205,000
pounds last year. Barley production
in the western counties was forecast
at 16,000,000 pounds as. compared
with 14,976,000 pounds in 1947. The
total is 23 per cent below last year
but six per cent above the 1937-46
Production of tobacco of all types
for the United States is now estimat
ed at 1,777,783,000 pounds, with .the
flue-cured crop placed at 1,005,007,000
pounds against a harvest of 1,317,
000,000 pounds last year.
The decline in ' flue-cured produc
tion is due to reduction in this year's
