PAGE THREE New Potato Crop Under Last Year's Decrease Attributed to Lack of Rain on L.I., West- ern New York ALBANY, </P) — The state's 1951 potato crop is expected to total 28,- 880,000 bushels—almost five and a half million bushels .under last year's. The State Department of Agricul- ture yesterday attributed the drop to dry weather on ,Long Island and in Western New York, while it said, dampness in other areas\ had made control of plant disease difficult. In its September crop report, the department said the upstate po- tato crop was expected to reach 12,240,000 bushels, compared with 17,160,000 in 1950. The 10-year average upstate 15,- 990,000 bushels. Oh Long Island, the department said a crop of 14,640,000 bushels was indicated. This compares with 17,- 155,000 bushels there last year, and a 10-year average of 16,155,000 bu- shels. However, the department said the national potato crop was also much below last year's, and that product- ion in all important potato-growing states was down. The department foresaw a dry bean crop of 1,357,000 bags (100 pounds). This would be about the same as last year, but 17 per cent below 1949. However, the department added that the crop would be less if early frosts or excessive rains hampered the harvest.
