Dry land farming is an essential part of the economy of northern Utah. With wheat in surplus production and subsequent crop controls a serious problem has developed in the area. The State Agricultural Statistician and the Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation Committee report that between thirty thousand and forty thousand acres have been taken from wheat production and are available for crops other than wheat.
