Acreage For Wheat
Smallest Since 1930 ;
With harvest of North Carolina’s i
1954 wheat crop near completion, |
growers’ reports indicate a State av
erage yield of 22 bushels per acre —'
1.5 bushels above yields from the 1953 1
crop and only 1 bushel short of the j
record 23.0 bushels harvested in 1951. |
Production from this year’s crop is i
placed at 6,952,000 bushels, about,
equal to the 10-year (1943-52) aver-|
age production but 15 per cent short'
of the 8,200,000 bushel crop of 1953
and the smallest harvest since 1950.
Weather conditions during harvest
were almost ideal and the crop was
gathered with a minimum of harvest
ing losses. However, stands were not
up to normal due to the unfavorably
dry fall planting season and some win
ter kill from colder than normal win
The estimated 316,000 acres harvest
ed this year, except for the 1930 crop
of 265,000 acres harvested, is the
smallest since 1866, according to the
