Pa. Corn Crop Forecast
Is Unchanged in August
Coin yields in Pennsylvania
as of Septembei 1 aie forecast
at 85 bushels per acre, un
changed fi om last month’s fore
This would be one bushel
highei than last veai, but three
bushels below the record high
y eld set in 1967
Total production of corn for
S’am is estimated at 80,155,000
bushels, five peicent above last
year’s crop and 41 pei cent
largei than 1968
The crop continues to make
rapid piogiess with most corn
(as of Sept 1) in the dough
dent stage and turning Dry
weather the first two weeks of
August was unfavorable for
optimum growth but the pres
ence of soil moisture carried
over from July and the arrival
of timely rains were a plus for
the crop Farmers in the cen
tral and southern counties
staited chopping corn for silage
the last week of August
Southern corn leaf blight has
been detected in Pennsylvania
corn fields by specialists from
Penn State Umveisity and the
State Depaitment of Agriculture
Plant Pathologists The infes
tations appear to be localized
at the present time and the
blight outlook depends on
weathei conditions, since fungus
