Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 19, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Thuildoy, Otlober 19, 1973 We HTHIRIDel HttAlB _ 13 RECEPTION LINE President Tilo and his wife Jovanka welcomed Queen Elizabeth and other members of the royal family they arrived in Belgrade, Yugoslavia, for a vijit to a communist country. (AP Wirepholo) Bad weather forces massive agro imports lly ANOltEW MOSCOW (neuter) Ad- verse weather conditions which have harried Russian agricul- ture Irtis yc.-ir have sLruck serious blow at Kremlin plans to boost the output ot Soviet farms. The leadership has decided to make good the expected short' (alls with massive imports, which will aonsume valuable hard currency reserves nor- mally earmarked to help de velop industry. The decision to import some 25 million tons of grain from the United Stales, Canada anc other counlries is a token o: how seriously the leaders are taking efforts to raise living standards. Foreign analysts of the agri cultural scene here predict lha the total grain harvest this year will be some 30 million .ens down Irom the projected 190 million tons. The lack of snow last winter, which exposed winter crops to Trosl damage, and the pro- longed drought this summer in some of the major grain areas have delivered a crushing blow to the planners' long-term tar- gets. Signs are that both sugar heels and sunflowers have not had a particularly good year. Potatoes, Ihc second most im- portanl Soviet crop, have also suffered from Ihc long hot sum- mer, and vodka distilleries have hccn told not to use them if (hey are fi( for sale in the shops as vegetables. If estimates (or Ihis year's crop prove correct, in order to achieve the projected annua average of 195 million Urns ol grain during 1971-1975, Sovicl farmers would have to produce more than 210 million tons r for the remainder o[ the I period. The reason [or the radical change in grain-buying policy is believed to bo the importance now allached to improving the quality of livestock, in which Ihe Soviet Union still lags be- hind the West. Korejgn analysis point lo the unprecedenlcd purchase of a million tons of soya from the United Stales as a signifi- cant step towards making up Ihe protein deficiencies in fod- der (or the Soviet Union's 100 million head of cattle. Despite adverse weather con- ditions, the Soviet leaders have clearly decided that the course Ihey have charted for the coun- try's agriculture shall be ad- hered to as closely as possible. One o( Ihe first things Sovicl Party Leader Leonid Brezhnev did when he took over control was to launch a massive farm investment program. Since he announced it in March 1905, improvements in Soviet agriculture have been closely linked with Brezhnev. Apart from increasing output, Brezhnev's big investments in Soviet farming arc aimed at re- ducing the fluctuations due to climate. In this respect the so- viet Union is much less favored than the United States, which can rely on good weather at the right time to give it stable grain crops.
