Crop Falls Short
Nations Expected to Import
582,000,000 BufdieU of
Grain Thia Year.
Washington, Aug. 23. Europe
will have (o import 582,000,000
bushel of wheat thia year, or 27,
000,OW) bushel more than latt year,
because of the decline in this year's
production, the Commerce depart
ment i was advised by Alfred P.
Dennis, its special representative in
Exclusive of Russia, this a year's
European wheat crop it estimated,
Mr. Denni said, at 1,057,000,000
bushels. The total represents a de
cline of 156,800,000 bushel a com
pared with last year's yield.
This falling off in yield was ac
counted for by a reduction of 1,500,
000 acres in the area sown in Europe,
by unfavorable growing conditions
in the winter and early spring, and
in the ca;e of Germany and Aus
tria, by the lack pf fertilizers. The
bulk of the decline, he added, was
accounted for in the losses in three
countries as follows: France. 48.
000.000 bushels; Italy, 33.500.000
bushels, and Germany, 22,500.000
bushels, while the percentage of loss
in the minor producing countries
was a follows: Sweden, 40 per cent;
Switzerland. 35 per cent; Holland,
25 per cent; Austria, 20 per cent;
Hungary, 20 per cent, and Spain, 16
Production tn Great Britain, he
reported, shows a decrease of 9 per
