MANUFACTURE AND SALE The Department of Commerce announced, Aug. 9, 1926, that, according to data collected at the annual canvass of manufacturers of farm equipment, the total value of such equipment made in 1925 amounted to $383,736,736, an increase of 18.7 per cent. as compared with $323,367,127 in 1924, and of 5.2 per cent. over $364,854,106 in 1923.

The production values for the more important classes of farm equipment for 1925 were as follows: Farm tractors and traction engines, $120.558,518: harvesting machinery (not including haying machinery), $28,118.503; machines for preparing crops for market or use (threshers, ensilage cutters, corn huskers, corn shellers, hay presses, feed grindders, etc.), $27,696.672: plows and listers, $23,644,833: cultivators and weeders, $17,539,172; haying machinery, $15,457,022.


Sales of farm equipment by manufacturers for domestic use in 1925 aggregated $332,845,204, as against $277,924,547 in 1924; and sales for export in 1925 amounted to $64,934,212, as against $51,988,372 in 1924. (The total of the domestic and export sales is not identical with the value of farm equipment manufactured, for the reason that a part of the production of 1924 was sold in 1925, and a part of the production of 1925 was not sold until 1926.)


The number of farm tractors and traction engine manufactured in the United States decreased from 135,210 in 1923 to 119,626 in 1924, but increased t 167,640 in 1925. Grain binders show a decreuse in production from 55,731 in 1924 to 42,405 in 192 together with an increase in sales from 48,323 E the earlier to 61,062 in the later year. Similarly a decrease from 126,448 in 1924 to 112,299 in 1922, in the number of mowers manufactured was ac companied by an increase from 112,462 to 118,19 in the number sold; and a decrease from 537,555 in 1924 to 516,408 in 1925 in the production moldboard plows of all types was accompanied by an increase from 558,074 to 577,900 in the sale of such plows.

There have been pronounced increases from yest to year since 1922 in the production of corn binders milking machine units, and windmills, and singe 1923 in the production of house water-supply systems.

The data for 1925 were reported by 981 manufac turers; for 1924, by 949; and for 1923, by 1.135 Some of these manufacturers were engaged es clusively in the production of farm equipment, while others reported such equipment only as a micr product.
