and Fiber calls for the elimination of onethird of todays farmers by 1980 If that prospect is not very cheerful how about 75cent com and beans at per bushel Thats the forecast of natoinal planners The United States has plenty of farm re sources to provide food and fiber for the fore seeable future according to a major economic study released by the National Advisory Commission on Food and Fiber In fact the study indicates the U S probably has too many resources invested in agriculture The solution to the farm problem may depend on shifting farm larly other industries The study is titled Food Needs and U S Agriculture in 1980 by Dr Earl Heady and Leo Mayer of the Center for Agricultural and Economic Development at Iowa State Univer sity It is also Volume I of the Food and Fiber Commissions technical reports The study used the Centers computer model of U S farming to project the demand for food and the re sources needed to meet this demand under sev eral sets of assumptions for 1980 The projections emphasize the rapidly dwrndling need for farmers In 1980 the pro jections show the U S will need about one third fewer farming manhoars than in 1965 no matter what farm policy we follow New capital and new technology are flowing rap idly into agriculture and replacing man power Even if U S farms were asked for maximum output in 1980 manhour requirements would be down 31 percent The authors note that there is already substantial underemployment on many U S the United States must expect to find nonfarm jobs for the equivalent of 40 percent of its current farm manjower by 1980 in order to avoid continued depressed incomes for farmers The change in labor requirements would vary a good deal by regions witlythe Delta states showing the greatest decrease percent and the Pacific states the least 18 The study also indicates we are farming mil lions more acres than we essentially wasting the labor and capital that farmers in vest in these extra acres Major contributors to this misuse of resources are the farm commod ity programs which use acreage allotments and temporary land retirement to regulate produc tion These programs tend to preserve existing production patterns instead of encouraging pro duction to shift as technology and markets change the comparative advantages of produc tion regions The study indicates that if farm production followed current comparative advantages cot ton production would shift more heavily away from the Southeast and toward the Southwest wheat production would shift away from the Corn Belt toward the eastern Great Plains and feed grain production would be concen trated more heavily in the Corn Belt fOverall the nations food and fiber could be produced art less cost to consumers without nec essarily reducing farmers returns The study indicates that temporary land re tirement programs are not an effective solution to the farm problem New technology actually replaces farmland by increasing the production per acre The study projects that the United Slates will continue to have more potential cropland than it needs and that some of this acreage should be shifted to less intensive uses such as grazing and forestry Food Needs and U S Agriculture in 1980 projects that farmers will produce their crops for lower prices in 1980 if a free market en courages efficiency and technology continues to develop at the present rate Likely prices for the major commodities if a free market en courages efficiency and technology is developed at the present rate 1955 1980 Wheat 134 127 Feed grains 110 75 corn equivalent Soybeans 249 123 Cotton 28 17 These prices are projected to coirCr the cost of producing the last bushel or pound needed since the last unit is the most expen sive to produce they would offer a profit on each of the previous units In the absence of some Government progrern to hold prices at artificially high levels these would probably be the prevailing market price levels The study also gives a regional breakdown on probable production costs under these condi tions Single copies of Food Needs and U S Ag riculture in 1980 Volume I of the Technical Studies of the National Advisory Commission on Food and Fiber are available from the Com mission headquarters 1321 H street NW Wash ington D C 20506
