W1SCONSIN crop prospects this year
are considerably more promising
than they were a year ago. There has
been an abundance of moisture so far
this spring, and temperatures have
been moderate so that winter grains,
hay, and pasture have not suffered any
serious damage. Rainfall in the state
has been normal or above in most
counties since hlst September, and th,
soil molistui e situation  is probablv
more satisfactory than at this time in
ally of the last five or six years.
Crop reporters oln April I showed
crtp conditions to be considerably bet -
etr thait a year ago. Winter wheat av-
eraged 92 percent of normal, rye 93
pelrent compatred with 67 percent last
yearl, atil Itasturi cottditions also are
bettert than a year ago, though they
alrc still below  average.  Conditions
tire also improved for the United States
aIs is shown by the following table:

Spring wolk ill the state will prob-
ably be a little later than was the case
last year, though some field work on
the lighter soils w Is done quite early.
There was very little frost ill the
ground and on th. lighter land the
fields permitted early tillage. Because
of the abundant supply of moisture
progless oil the heavi, r lands has been

Wioconstn Foarm Ineome Higher
Estimliates of gross farm income for
Wiscolnsin during  19.4 have recently
been completed. These estimates show
a substantial Itireease in the farm in-
cotlie ats conipared with a year ago.
The gross farin inicome for the state
for 1934 is IIOW placed at $241,791,000.
This is an illCrease of about 1S percent
over a year ago when the gross farm
ilconie was estimated at $2t.l,225,000.
Compared w ith plre-watr the index of
gross farm  ittonte for I 94 stood at
10S compared with 91 perCeett a year
ago.  While the increase during the
post year has b-een stlbstatntial, the
fa lil income is still far below the
years before the depressioti.  In 1l29
the sta tc s gross farm incotne was es-
titiatted at nearly $438,000t,00. The low
point of tue depression was reached in
1932 when the gross fartlil inco ite was
estimated  at $1 86,355,000.  Cotnpared
o ith the last year before the depres-
sioIt, 1929, the grlOss inloille for 1934
shows a declitle of nearly 45 percent.
At the low point of the depression ins
19:12 the staite's farm inctonte was over
57 percent below that of 19219. Itt spite
of the recovery of the past two years
miuclh addition al progress n eeds to be
made to bring the state's fartil income
back to the levels prevailing prior to
the depression.
During  the past year the income
from crops rtose moree sharply than that
from livestock. Because of the drought.
