This bulletin presents an accurate visual picture that highlights the surplus crop producing areas of the State. The graphic maps provide both relative and absolute comparisons since the figures given are in bushels per acre of land in farms, and these may be translated into county production totals by expanding the per acre figures on the basis of total land in farms shown in figure 14. If desired, this process could also be duplicated at the township level since the acreage of land in farms by townships is available from the files of the Iowa Crop and Livestock Reporting Service at 1019 High Street in Des Moines. In addition, since the averages presented are on a land in farm basis they reflect both factors of total production, that is yield per crop acre, and the per cent of all farm land in a particular crop.
