Washington. Dec 27 -Statistician John Hyde of the Department of Agriculture, i estimate* tbe United States wheat crop ; of I9W at 522 225*. Vi.' uuahel*. the area nc- I tually harvested being 42.495.385 acres, and the average yield |>er acre 12 29 bushels. The production of winter wheal Is esti mated at 250.025.tf1t* bushels, and that of ! spring wheat, at 172,SMASH bushel*, the area actually harvested being 26.225.5V7 acres In the former rase, and 16.259.1 M acres In the latter. Winter wheat arr ,g< totally abandoned in Ohio. Michigan, j Indiana and Illlnola Is finally placed at | 2.522.7*7 acres, and the spring wheal acr nge totally abandoned In North Dakota and South Dakota at 1.792.46? acres. The extraordinarily rapid rale at which the winter wheat average of Nebraska Is gaining upon the spring wheat averag of that eiafe. has necessitated a special Investigation of the relative extent to which the two varieties were grown dur ing the past year. The resuM of the invtwtigatlon Is that walle no change la culled for In tbe total wheat figures >{ the state. 590,575 acres have been added to the winter wheat column at the exi<en*c of the spring variety. The newly seeded area of winter wheat is estimated at 311.2*2.564 acres. While this acreage Is slightly greater than that sown In the fall of 1*99, as estimated at the time. It la W 1.451 acres less than fhe area that was actually sown, the discrepancy being due lo that remarkably rapid devel opment of winter wheat growing In Ne braska with which, as above stated, 'he department report* had failed to keep pace. A comparison of the newly seeded acreage with that of the fall of 1*99 shows that of the elevea slates amt territories that sowed I.OX).ADO acres or upwards with winter wheat one year ago. Pennsylvania, Missouri. Kansa6. California and Oklaho ma. report an Increase amounting to 571.- eM acre*, and Ohio. Michigan. Indiana. Il linois. Texas, and Tennessee a decrease of 1 7M.191 acre*.
