The same tendency of decreasing acre costs from the Red River Valley to the Central, Northwest and Southwest districts is noted for all crops in general, except corn. The acre cost of summer-fallow also follows this sequence and the chief reasons for this doubtless are found in the charge for the use of land and in the amount of labor required for cultivation. ' It should be pointed out that $2.38, the State average cost of corn silage, represents the cost of field production and does not include the cost of filling the silo. The last line of table 52 shows the cost per ton of filling the silo and this cost added to the corresponding cost for production gives the total cost of silage in the silo, being $3.86. While there are not enough farms in each group to definitely establish the cost of silage, when these respective costs are taken into consideration with the State average, where 33 farms are involved, it will be seen that the costs are reasonably close to the actual average. The relative amounts of the various items of cost of wheat are shown in figure 4. The vertical columns show the comparison between the different items ranging from the cost of automobile as applied to an acre of wheat, being $.20, to the charge for the use of land, being $3.06 per acre, the latter being approximately 22 percent of the total acre cost of producing wheat. The charge for auto use is arrived at by prora ng the total farm cost of operation to the various enterprises on the farm.
