THE HARVEST IN WALES. A preliminary statement showing the es- timated total produce of the harvest in Great Britain has just been issued by the Board of Agriculture. It appears that Wales allotted 147 fewer acres to wheat than last year, and the total yield (amount- ing to 138,912 quarters) was less by 68 quarters. It's average of 28.09 bushels per acre, is 2! bushels better than that of the last ten years. To barley, however, the Principality assigned 2,297 more acres, and grew 16,091 more quarters. The average acreage yield was 32.52 bushels, against 31.13. Oats were an immense crop con- trasted with 1909. An increased area of 6,565 acres yielded 103,134 additional quar- ters, and the average of 38.21 bushels was nearly four bushels better than that of the past decade. The happiest feature, how- ever, is that of the hay crop. Although 558 fewer acres were given up to hay from clovpr, the total yield was higher by not less than 56,889 tons. The average is better by nearly 7 cwts. Again, in hay from per- manent grass 16,542 additional acres ac- counted for a bigger yield than the previous year by 121,199 tons. It will be interesting to readers to contrast the Welsh averages per acre with those of England and Scot- land:Wheat, England 31.10, Wales 28.19, Scotland, 38.33 barley, England 33.60, Wales 32.52, Scotland 34.67 oats, England 42.53, Wales 38.21, Scotland 38.64 hay from clover, England 31.78 cwts., Wales 29.28, Scotland, 31.94 hay from permanent grass, England 25.33, Wales 22.23, Scotland 27.59.
