Agriculture department of- ficials said lower prices for broiler chickens and eggs contributed most to the computed between Sept. 15 and Oct. 15. Higher prices for dry beans and grapefruit were reported dur- ing the the Crop Reporting Board said. The decline continued a farm price drop of eight per cent recorded from Aug. 15 to Sept. 15. That was the sharpest one month drop in more than 25 years. Government officials have predicted that retail food which have soared at record rates during much of will begin to slow down as farmers complete record harvests this fall and begin to turn out more milk and poultry So the evidence compil- ed by the government suggests that consumers have not benefitted to the full ex- tent of recent drops in raw farm prices. 10 to 20 per cent of the wheat and lesser amounts of other crops remained unthreshed. The Saskatchewan Wheat Pool reported that St. Walburg had received six inches of snow Oct. 25 and there was of the harvest being completed in the area The pool also estimated that 50 per cent of the wheat crop across northern areas of Sas- katchewan was harvested in a tough or damp which will mean lower grades and lower returns for the farmer Farm organizations and provincial agriculture departments are starting to assess just how much grain had to be left in the fields from the estimated total wheat production in the two provinces of 506 million bushels POOL MAN OPTIMISTIC think it will be a rather insignificant amount com- pared with the total Saskatchewan estimate of 373 million a wheat pool spokesman said. In Alberta an estimated 39 million bushels remained in the fields of an estimated wheat crop of 133 million bushels. Two weeks ago about 43 million bushels of wheat remained to be harvested The amount of grain that re- mains in the field is of concern to the Canadian Wheat the agency responsible for selling on the 'domestic and world markets. G N. the board's chief says ex- ports during the current crop year may have to be reduced by 100 million bushels from last year's level. He told a recent seminar in Winnipeg that much grain may still remain in Prairie fields and yields may be lower than the estimated figures While still on the wheat is to supply and he adding that even if harvested next grain now lying in fields may not be available in time for 1973-74 exports. are cautious about counting our bushels until they are in the Mr Vogel saiu. The situation is compounded in that the crop may provide considerably less high-quality grain than during a normal crop year Canada's reputation for high quality milling wheat is at stake with world prices at an all-time high. Even though grades may be planted acreage is up and prices are bouyant with indications that grain receipts will reach between IS billion and billion this crop twice as high as in 1972 and three times higher than the average for the 1960s.
