Novtmbtr WJ-THt LCTHMIDQIHMALD-M Wheat production higher OTTAWA This year's wheat crop will total 628.7 million well above the S33.3 million harvested last year and up slightly from the 10-year average of CM.2 million Statistics Canada said Friday. Statistics Canada said on the basis of yields indicated late in estimated production of nine of the 21 grain and oilseed crops is higher than in 1972. The es- timates for the remaining 12 were down. At million the wheat yield is 18 per cent above last year's total and two per cent higher than the 10- year based on yields from 1962 to 1971. The increase in production was credited to a two-per-cent increase in yields and a 16- percent increase in seeded acreage. The average wheat yield of 25.4 bushels an acre is seven per cent above the 10-year average of 23.8 bushels an acre. Of the major rye and flaxseed sH'are ex- pected to be up from last year while barley and rapeseed should be down. DOWN FROM AVERAGE Oats production is forecast at 326.9 million up from 300.2 million in 1972 but down from the 10-year average of 378.6 million. at 14.3 million also is up from last year's total of 13.5 million but down from the average of 15.4 million. flaxseed is ex- pected to be 19.4 million up from 1972's 17.6 million and down from the average of 23.7 million. barley produc- tion should be about 474.6 million bushels this down dramatically from the previous harvest of 518.3 million bushels but up from the 10-year average of 303 million. Rapeseed is expected to total 53.2 million down from the 1972 total of 57.3 million but up from the average of 32.1 million bushels. The latest figures from the federal statistics bureau are based on surveys by corre- spondents working for Statistics Canada. They generally correspond with predictions made early last month. VIRTUALLY COMPLETE By late most of the 1973 Prairie grain and oilseed crops had been with the exception of parts of Alberta where an estimated 35 per cent of the harvest re- mained. is virtually complete in where yields were somewhat higher than in Statistics Canada said in its statement. yields of the major crops also were higher than in 1972 although weathering has reduced the quality of wheat in the wet areas. in Alberta were generally lower than in the previous year and quality was better in the southern area than in the In rain near the end of October generally delayed harvesting and below-average yields and quality is reported for most crops. In most parts fa- vorable conditions prevailed although yields are slightly below last year's estimates. In the Atlantic provinces. except for Newfoundland for which figures were not avail- the wet growing season affected all crops. Despite favorable harvesting yields are generally down. In British most yields are above those of 1972 but rain and snow in the Peace River region reduced quality and prevented completion of harvesting. HARDUTE LENSES...
