On March 1, farmers stated their intentions to plant 3 percent less acreage to feed grains than during 1963. The decline to 127 million acres indicated for 1964 was led by a 7 percent smaller barely acreage followed by a 4 percent drop in oats. Corn acreage is expected to be nearly 2 percent smaller, and prospective sorghum acreage is nearly the same as last year. Prospective planting of corn for the 1964 Iowa crop is estimated at 10,957,000 acres - about 5 percent below last year.
