This fs Hie fundamental law govern Gg farm prices and production under armal conditions, but Lhe inrestiga- or into the present state of affairs will search'In rain for eridence of its peralion. In a country lite Western anatJa, for example, Lbe of wheat reduction under normal conditions 35 been delrrnnlned at approximately ixty cenls a busliel.

That factor Is (be spectre of world shortage which, i ng lo the length of time lo bring additional land- under ruUlva- jon. cannot he Immediately counter- acted by Increased produclion. U may be argued that, simultaneous ly with this great Increase in the. price of wheat has come an increase In Ihe coal of production. This Is true, imt the increase Is by no means propor- tionate. The only serious increase in the cost of production has been; the human labor factor. There have been some increases In Ihe cost of equip- ment, but this, dlslrlbuleJ over the period'of years which comprises the. life of equipment would show an effect on 'Lhe cost of production so have also been some Increases In the cost of mechanical In Lhe incidental ei pen ECS ol Lht farm.
