Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 5, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta ----------------------__ Saturday, Scp lib tit 5, 1970 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 9 Fifty-One Per Cent Smaller Thau Last Wheat Crop For 1970 Estimated At 338 Million Bushels OTTAWA (CT) Canada's 1970 wheat crop, estimate! at 338.3 million bushels, will he 51 per cent smaller than last year's bushels, the Dominion Bureau of Statistics reported Friday in its first esti- mate of this year's principal field crops. The estimates were prepared Aug. 15 and DBS said farmers are making good progress with the prairie harvest. The wheat crop decrease matches 51 per cent reduction in seeded acreage this year. Av- erage, yield is 27.1 bushels an acre compared with 27.4 last summer. Last. year's bumper crops came as markets for wheat dwindled in the face of record world production. With more than one billion bushels unsold, prairie farmers were induced to decrease wheat acreage this year with federal no-grow pay- ments. The 1970 spring wheat' crop is estimated at 322.4 million bushels on 12.1 million acres. The 1969 figures are 663.9 mil- lion bushels from 24.C million acres. SASK. PRODUCES MOST Saskatchewan will produce 212 million bushels of wheat this year against 461 million last year. Manitoba production is es- timated at 33.8 million bushels, compared with 64 million in 1969. Alberta production is esti- mated at 73 million bushels against-140 million last year. Durum wheat production, in- cluded in the spring wheat fore- cast, is estimated at 79.5 million bushels. Last year's estimate is 83 million bushels. Record crops of barley, flaxs- eed and mixed grains are fore- cast as farmers turn away from wheat. Production of oats and rye is- also up. Details on the oilier crops: Oats for grain: 1970 forecast is 375.8 million bushels, up one per cent from 1969 371.4 million. A record 52.7 bushels an acre is being harvested on the prairies, where 284 million bushels are forecast against 278 million last year. Hiirlcy: 1970 forecast is a rec- FOR RENT Building with Sq.

The report, sections of which were read into the Congres- sional Record by Senator Thomas Mclntyre (Dem. says that "it should be possible to make up to barrels a day of additional residual fuel oil from increases in U.S. or Ca- nadian crude oil by utilizing spare refinery capacity and shifting jields." However, a spokesman for the MFC said the report from which Hclntyre read was the first draft. A more complete version, le said, was sent to Assistant Secretary Hollis M. Dole of the nterior department last Tues- day and the final NPC report will go to Dole next week. The spokesman declined to discuss changes in the drafts subsequent to the one Mclntyre obtained. But the feeling in tlie ndustry was that, while the 'inal report would be more com- plete, the general thrust of its findings would remain pretty much intact. The report, as presented by Mclntyre, offers no breakdown of what part of the suggested total increase could be imported from Canada. Under the present quota system, Canadian imports are held to barrels a day of crude no residual fuel oil. Under a recently-an- nounced scheme, additional Ca- nadian imports may be granted in "hardship cases." EXPENSIVE PROCESS In essence, what the repor suggests is use of spare refiner capacity to process U.S. and Ca nadian crude into residual fue expensive process. But, Mclntyre said in presen! ing the draft report, "there is clear fuel-oil crisis in New Eng land." Otter senators have eel oed this fear'in other areas o the U.S. Traditional sources of chea fuel oil from the Middle Eas have been interrupted by th political crisis there. There als has been a markad shortage o coal to fuel electricity-general ing plants. The NPC, a body of industrj experts created by presidentia' directive to advise the interio department, says of the stal- lage: "The committee cannot be sure whether the U.S. residu fu.el oil requirements will met in the whiter of 1970-71 without extraordinary aciton by industry and government."

"The most promising extraor- dinary action is to run addi- tional crude oil in U.S. refiner- ies and increase residual fuel oil yields. For the level of in- creases under consideration, it is possible to convert such in- cremental oil runs to nearly 109-per-cent residua] fuel oil." DEPENDS ON CAPACITY Domestic supplies would de- pend on logistical systems, in- cluding Texas and Louisiana crude productivity capacity, pipeline capacity, refmery ca- pacity and the like. Low-sulphur fuel oil availabil- ity may be a problem in some locations but "if a problem does materialize, it should be possi- ble to make up to bar- rels a day of additional residual fuel oil from increases in U.S. or Canadian crude oil by utiliz- ing spare refinery capacity and shifting yields." While it was "technically fea- sible" to run crude oil and sluft yields, "the economic feasibility of providing large quantities of fuel oil out of U.S. or Canadian crude oil is a major factor with which refineries would be con- fronted." The NPC committee warns that any such industry chan- geover would have to be some- thing more permanent than a temporary emergency measure. SHUTDOWN SAULT STE. MARIE, Ont. (CP) Abitibi Paper Co.
