N. C. Corn Yield
Expected Tie Record |
Reports from producers as of*
August 1 indicate a Tar Heel
corn yield of 48 bushels per acre,
the same as the revised record
yield of 1960, according to the
North Carolina Crop Reporting
Service.
Production, however, forecast
at 67,200,000 bushels would be
short of the 84,000,000 bushels
harvested last year by 20 per
cent. The sharp drop in pro
duction is the result of heavy
participation by producers in the
Feed Grain Program.
Official figures show that 511,-
000 acres of corn were retired
this spring under the feed grain
reduction program. Acreages so
retired amounted to 26 percent
of the State base acres for 1960
when 1,750,000 acres were har
vested for grain. The acres to
be harvested for grain this year
are estimated at 1,400,000 or 20
percent less than for last year
and the smallest acreage record
ed for the State since estimates
were started in 1866.
