Ttvo-for-one imbalance U.S. favored in farm trade n.v T'liTRfl BUCKLEY WASHINGTON (CP) The United Stales agriculture de- partment says a variety of re- strictions imposed by Ottawa have the effect of reducing sales of U.S. agricultural products in Canada, although U.S. farm ex- ports to Canada moved to record levels last year and were about double the level of such imports from Canada. ''For calendar year 1971, U.S. agricultural exports to Canada reached a record level of said a bulletin pre- pared by the department's for- eign agricultural service. "It is likely, however, that in the ab- sence of the system of non-tariff barriers, Canada would be a larger market for U.S. farm products." The bulletin, one of a continu- ig series of foreign-market studies, acknowledged the two- for-one imbalance in U.S. favor in farm and snifl raporls have been climbing at an aver- age annual rate of eight per cent in recent years. It also acknowledged that "most" farm products enter Canada free of non-tariff bar- category that includes quotas, controls, surcharges and other restrictions beyond pure tariffs on imports. The department paid particu- lar attention to government trading and licensing restric- tions, which it said "have the same effect" as import quotas and quantitative restrictions "in many cases." Wheat, barley, oats and their byproducts are among items subject to government trading restrictions and "as a rule it is virtually impossible to import" such products into Canada, the report said. Margarine and other butter substitutes were banned. Licensing also was required for sugar byproducts, soluble coffee, butter, chcddar cheese, skim milk powder, buttcrlat and some similar products. The department said Canada also imposes seasonal duties on some products on a "floating" basis which "adds an element of uncertainty to exports of the affected Items during certain periods." In addition, there was a tem- porary, variable-type surcharge which could be levied to offset disruptive imports. Although it had been used only once since 1968, on strawberries, it had been imposed earlier on corn, fresh potatoes and turkey meat. The department noted that in each case, the U.S. government had requested and been granted a compensating temporary re- duction in duties on similar the case of strawber- ries in 1971, for example, the import, duly on cranberries was lifted. It said, however, that the sur- charge "is a continuing irritant to U.S.-Canadian trade relations and is a disincentive to U.S. ex- porters because of t h e uncer- tainty it creates." The report said U.S. exporters also are concerned about the ef-. feels that could be felt if na- tional marketing boards are set up in Canada under a federal act passed by the Commons last January after the mter-provin- eial ciiicken-and-egg conflict. The boards "may lead to in- creased Canadian import re- strictions on the commodities the report said. Among random other com- plaints by the department were a freight subsidy paid to move prairie feed grains to Eastern Canada, which cut into potential corn sales from the U.S. Mid- west, and the small market for American wines in provincial- ly-conlrollcd liquor outlets. In Ottawa, a spokesman (or Agriculture Minister H. A. Olson said Canada continues to seek freer trade with other countries, strictions that fewer re- goods coloring Canada must he met by fewer barriers on Canadian goods moving south. The spokesman pointed out that Canada lias one of the low- est rates o! subsidization per farmer than any country in the world. Canadian farm subsidies amount to about a farmer compared with about a fanner in the U.S. Freer trade depends on a "sawoff" principle; "there has to be some give on both sides." Canadian exports to the U.S. last year dropped somewhat be- cause of a surcharge on dutia- ble imports to the U.S. imposed by President Nixon's k August. Opportunity ior Canadians Although Canada docs have re- strictions on grain, dairy prod- ucts and some other commodi- ties, they are needed to protect Canadian producers and are not as tough as some trade restric- tions Canada faces from other countries. The spokesman added that the new marketing board legislation will do little more than put out- side goods entering Canada on a trade basis similar to that faced by Canadian farmers. There are no import restrictions set out In the bill. Japan needs forage seeds HALIFAX (CP) Canadian seed growers must produce for- age seed varieties which fulfil needed requirements at compet- itive prices, if inroads are to be made into the Japanese market. At present Canada produces only 3.3 per cent of the metric tons of seed Japan im- ports annually, delegates to the Canadian Seed Growers Asso- ciation meeting were told Mon- day. In a report on the CSGA tech- nical mission to Japan earlier this year, tabled at the associa- tion's annual meeting by Ken Long of Cardston, the 200 delegates were told the Japa- nese requirement is increasing annually. That market offers great po- tential for Canadian seed grow- ers, Mr. Long, an Alberta seed producer, said later in an inter- view. The nine-member trade mis- sion to Japan, which included some government representa- tives, introduced Canadian seeds to the Japanese consum- ers and seed trade, Mr. Long said. Because the pacific nation's climate and soil conditions make seed production uneco- nomical, only two per cent of its annual seed requirement is pro- duced at home. Mr. Long said Japan U at- tempting to produce more meat and dairy products and subsi- dies are being paid to farmers to produce crops other than rice, which is currently pro- duced in surplus. The Japanese would like to get a better seed than they are currently using, with higher germination and less contami- nation. They "knew very little" about Canadian seeds. The report said Canada must produce forage seed varieties needed by Japan under contracl at competitive prices in order to improve Canada's position in the Japanese seed market. Mr. Long said three Canadian t- KLONDIKE KLOTHES The Dale Faulkner family of Edmonton shows what the well-dressed family wears for Edmonton's Klondike Days fair which begins Thursday. Mrs. Faulkner won the Pioneer and Old Timer's Association award for her stitchery. (CP Wirepholo) seed companies plan to send representatives to Japan as a result of the trade mission and the report stressed that per- sonal contact on a continuing basis Is essential to capitalize on the expanding opportunities in Japan. Association President G. H. Beatty of Watrous, Sask. said more contact in other countries should be sought by producers seeking to promote export sale of seeds. BACKS MORE CONTACT Mr. Beatty, a member of the trade mission to Japan, 'said "more of this type of contact with countries should be encour aged." Marketing of Canadian seeds took up most of the opening day of the association's three-day convenlion. Dr. J. L. Liebfried of Winni- peg, marketing co-ordinator of the Canadian wheat board, told delegates that substantial sales to China and Russia sparked an upsurge in marketing activity that will push the country's ex- port total during the 1971-72 crop year to some BOO million bushels of grain. "The 1971-72 barley picture :umed out better than people thought he said, Indi- cated that there had been con- siderable concern about whether or not there would be a market for last year's increased acreage of barley. Barley exports increased nearly 40 million bushels to 220 million bushels while wheat in- creased some BO million bushels to 500 million bushels. PROSPECTS GOOD Shipments to Russia and China will continue and Dr. Li- ebfried said export prospects !or the 1972-73 crop year are excellent. W. K. Robertson of the fed- eral industry, trade and com- merce department, said the Ca- nadian seed industry will be watching developments in Eu- rope with great interest. He said a problem creating concern is the introduction ol an ncenlive subsidy scheme to promote greater production ol orage seeds within Ihe Euro- Dean Economic Council coun- .ries. "This will provide direct pay- ments to growers in order to encourage the conversion from grain production to forage he said. There is concern that this extra production will reduce Canada's export opportunities but with the intensified promo- tion of production in Europe, the demand for pedigreed seed might create greater opportu- nity in Canada to produce for- eign varieties under contract, he said. 007 Division 'top secret' LOS ANGELES (AP) An aerospace engineer, eligible to he a juror in the Pentagon Pa- pers trial, refused lo tell the judge about his top secret work in a group nicknamed "The 007 Division "It's still top Terri- ance Meadows said when quizzed Monday about his work at North American Rockwell Corp.
