The tight supply-demand balance of certain nitrogen and phosphate fertilizers is the result of several factors. First is the release of 62 million acres that were set-aside in 1972. Another important influence is the strong foreign demand for fertilizer, making export prices much higher than domestic ceiling prices. Devaluation of the dollar has further aggravated the situation, continues Sprott. Like other items in world trade, fertilizer prices currently may be discounted by as much as 20 per cent where the price is quoted in dollars but payment is made in currencies whose values have risen in relation to the dollar. The shortage of phosphate fertilizers should soon be eased by expansion of phosphoric acid production, but the outlook of nitrogen fertilizers is far less promising. The supply of ammonia, the source of most nitrogen fertilizers, depends on the availability of natural gas, its feedstock. With each natural gas curtailment faced by the ammonia producers meaning reduced production, the supply of nitrogen fertilizers could fall one million tons short of world demand in 1973-74, says the Texas A&M University System economist. Farmers experienced a tight fuel situation during spring planting this year and expect a similar situation this fall. Although the diesel supply for fall appears adequate, gasoline stocks are low, notes Sprott. For next spring, the gasoline and diesel situations appear mildly optimistic. Although farmers will be permitted to plant more acres, more fuel is being imported and allocated to distributors servicing farm accounts. The big fuel concern is over the short supply of LP gas, says Sprott. A cold, wet fall and a harsh, early winter could keep C00mmunity alendar farmers from obtaining enough propane for crop drying. The Economic Research Service of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, aided by energy staffs in many states, is emphasizing farmers' fuel needs to the Department of Interior, where the nation's petroleum fuel policies are made. The policy makers understand the peculiar seasonal needs of farmers and are committed to providing them with sufficient fuel in a timely manner to prevent crop losses, notes Sprott.

So, one ponder the question seriously, for he is asking what the young ruler asked Jesus - Mark 10dTb: "Good Master, shall I do that I my hthedt etormd life?" Now, I do not that Jesus' answer is THE ANSWER for every person for I believe that one spiritual prescription will suffice for person.

Trnett Smith of Wylie, president of the Bankers Association, said this week. Based on the 32nd annual farm lending summary agricultural bankers division of the American Association, T.B.A. President Smith reported that at beginning of 1973 .Texas banks were helping farmers ranchers with $1.509 billion in loans, or 25 per cent year previous. This total included $1.226 billion in loans and $283 million in farm mortgages. At the same time million in farm loans was held by life insurance companies, million by Federal Land Banks, $461 million by Credit Associations and $62 million in non-real estate loanS, ] $11 million in real estate loans by the Farmers Administration. About 70 per cent of the production credit extended institutions to Texas farmers and ranchers comes from Smith said that "bankers in Texas are conscmus of the capital investments rec a concerted effort through improved lending programs to these changing credit demands of the state's ranchers." The Inereaeed use of credit by agricultural interests, said, has been accompanied by a substantial gainin total of farm and ranch families. Therefore, in the equity position of farmers and ranchers is being satisfactory level. Nationally, farm families have $311 their own funds invested in agriculture. This represents cent of their total capital requirements. The TBA president stressed the importance of farmers bankers working closely together to improve farm arrangements. He reported that almost nine out of 10 banks throughout the country have agricultural outstanding, with 87 per cent of the Texas banks credit to farm and ranch people.
