Six con- tional agricultural situation made recently by correspond- etrts of the Nwr York Times. the Burvey discloses that the shortages of foodstuffs are the result of years of neglect of agriculture in most lands.

Japan's poet- war economic- miracle largely came about because of her ability to 'secure ample basic such as from the huge American farm stockpiles of former and Washington was glad to get the business. These cheap In enabeld the Japanese to hold wages in line and indus- trialize rapidly as well as com- pete in the world markets. the size of has limited land for agricul- ture. the survey Japan is in shock because 90 per cent of her soybean for that came from this country is now in jeopardy. Japanese trade missions are busily scouring Latin Australia and other possible suppliers of pork and other foodstuffs. SURPLUSES GONE With world surpluses Japanese industrialists now face even greater pressures from labor for higher wages to cover soaring food costs there. The situation in typi- cal of the lesser developed is also showing pro- found changes. For most of her Brazil completed with other raw-materials producers in the world markets for cotton and lesser agricultural products. Except for the war these earnings barely covered essential imports of costlier manufactured goods. Efforts to diversify the Bra- zilian agricultural economy were often frustrated by the availability of cheap foreign wheat and other goods under various U.S. pro- grams during the surplus years. It took a bold farmer to invest in grain crops in Brazil then. Like most Latin the Brazilians depended on cash crops because growing food was even chancier. The traditional lament beard in the region was that its people were condemned to hewers of wood and drawers of for the industrialized lands. the survey every agricultural commodity pro- duced in Brazil and elsewhere in Latin' America is being snap- up by eager buyers. This set a new cycle in motion. The flood of earnings is pro- viding for with the financial resources to speed her industrialization. In the first five months of Brazilian exports jumped 42 per cent to almost bil- lion. Much of these earnings are being invested agricul- ture. The hardly heard of in Brazil three years is fast becoming a major crop. This year Brazil will harvest almost 6 million tons of pro- tein-rich soybeans and is al- ready the third largest pro- ducer after the U.S. and China. Brazil has become the world's biggest producer of cane with 6 million tons this and is struggling to meet the world demand for her cotton and oth- er crops. This had led to ser- ious shipping bottlenecks at all ports. The experience of Brazilian agriculture has encouraged oth- er Latin-American low-c o s t producers to invest in farming. many of Brazil's particularly Argen- appear to be still strug- gling with political experiments to the neglect of both industry and agriculture.
