Income from farm market
ings, farm production expenses,
gross farm income all seen at
record highs this year. Realized
net income seen up sharply.
USDA’s Economic Research Ser
vice now estimates cash receipts
from farm marketings at around
$47.5 billion, compared to the
former high of $44.4 billion dur
ing 1968; and gross farm income
at $54.5 billion, compared to the
previous high of $51.1 billion
Meantime, farm production
expenses are expected to total
around $38.6 billion, record
high for the fifth straight year,
topping the 1968 total of $36.3
That’ll put realized net at
around $l6 billion, up sharply
from last year’s $l4 8 billion
total and the fourth highest on
record (it’d be exceeded only
the $17.3 billion of 1947, the
$16.1 billion of 1948, and the
16.2 billion of 1966.

A Lot of Ownership: When
you own an acre or a lot, you
have a triangular slice of earth,
some 4,000 miles deep.
Charles A. Trout and his son
David, a recent student at Penn
State, planted a number of As
grow Seed Company’s hybrids
this year, at a number of loca
tions to see how well they stack
ed up against the popular varie
ties commonly planted in their
part of the state. David check
ed yields by hand and then they
double checked these findings
Recently, the Asgrow Seed
Company acquired the United-
Hagie Company which is a lead
ing developer of new hybrids in
the Corn Belt, The variety, IXL
9, had a terrific performance
record in various state and
county trials in the mid-west un
der an experimental number. It
was released last year for field
After observing it at various
locations in his 200 acres of
corn acreage, Mr Trout stated,
“Asgrow’s IXL 9 is at least as
good or better than any full sea
son, single cross planted on my
farms It stands excellent, ears
filled out beautifully, and it
really holds the ears. We had
some trouble with another top
single cross dropping ears be
fore we could harvest it. IXL 9
didn’t show this problem. It is
a good combiner 1 would cer
tainly recommend it to my
neighbors My son’s checks
showed it to be a high yielder
but when we combined it along
with the other corns we found
IXL 9 to yield higher because it
ran heavy at poor spots in the
field. I can’t say this about
other corns we had planted. It
certainly appears well adapted '
to all soil types ”
