C. W. Gibblngs, commission- er of the Canadian wheat board, said the record pace of Prairie grain shipments now underway will continue until the close of Great Lakes nav- igation- He said heavy pro- ducer deliveries oC both wheat and barley will be needed to meet the demand. Mr. Gibbings said the wheat board would soon announce the opening quotas for the start of the new crop year on August 1. Producers should get their new permit books as soon as possible so that there will be no interruption in wheat and barley deliveries to country elevators. "It's going to be a summer unlike any that's ever happened he said. "Producers have become "used to the traditional August slow-d own after the July rush is over. But there will not be let-up this year AS August will be just like another July in grain shipments and I'm sure producers will keep-up their deliveries to ensure that our Gales commitments can be met." With rail shipments lo C h u r c h ill gelling underway, country elevator shipments are now averaging over 30 million bushels per week. Grain ship- ping programs for Ihe balance of Ihe summer and fall call for shipments of about 20 million bushels per week to Thunder Bay, over eight million bushels per week lo West Coast ports and approximately two million bushels per week lo Churchill, Manitoba. Mr. G i b b i n g s urged pro- ducers to apply immediately for their 1972-73 permit books to ensure thai they can con- tinue delivering grain at the opening of the new crop year on August 1. "It is vevy important proilui'ors be ready to make their deliveries as soon as Ihe new quotas conic into Mr. Gibbings said, "and to m.iUe sure deliveries arc not delayed for lack of permit books we'll lake whatever steps ere necessary to gel the per- mit books out to producers as quickly as possible." Mr. Gibbings said personal- ized forms had been sent di- reelly to producers this year to speed-up the application process. Since producers have the right to adjust their quota acres up lo October 31, 1972, there no longer is any reason lo delay sending in permit book applications. "Producers should apply now and, if necessary, adjust their quota acres after the crop has been Mr. Gib- liings said.
