Immense tracts of former wheat land have been, perforce, turned to other crops, and a system of rotation is gradually being introduced. America will always be a. larg-e wheat-producing country, perhaps the largest iw the world, but American farming will in the next half-century have to undergo a. radical ehangje of system, which will tend to equalise the conditions of production in the old countries and the naw.
