As his Boeing 707 stopped at the U.S. airbase in Torrejon for fuel before setting out across the Atlantic, U.S. officials told may have been the most productive.

The estimate closely paralleled a report issued only a day-earlier by the National Corn Growers Assn., which pegged this year’s crop at 4.65 billion bushels nationwide. The agriculture department estimated U. S. prospects at 4.62 billion bushels. Another report issued by the agriculture department Friday said retail food prices will continue climbing at least in the first half of 1975, partly because of poor crop weather this year. Iowa Prospects Corn prospects in Iowa dropped one percent from a month earlier, the agriculture department saki, as the yield presently is expected to be 951.8 million bushels. This figure is 21 percent less than the 1.204 billion produced last year. The average yield in Iowa is expected to be 81 bushels — down one bushel from a month earlier and 27 bushels less than the 108 bushel yield last year. Iowa produced a record com yield of 116 bushels in 1972.
