AGRICULTURAL AND PASTORAL STATISTICS.
Pending the introduction of more elaborate machinery next year for collecting agricultural and pastoral statistics, tbe Department has again to rely on collection through tbe post for particulars in regard to the more important of our crops Forms have just been posted to occupiers as indicated in tbe advertisement whioh we have inserted. On these forms oc cupiers of land are asked to make a return of the area they have sown in crops. The hearty co operation of occupiers is urgently requested It is obvious that accurate particulars of the area under crops are of fundamental importance in obtaining statistics of crop production, The most careful estimates of yields cannot but furnish misleading results as to total production if the area on which the calculation is based is under or over estimated. Tbe events of the past year have shown the importance of statistics of production* The Government must be guided by these figures in deciding whether an em bargo on export may be lifted. Again, it will be on the information furnished by statistics as to area under crop that an estimate oan be arrived at a 9 to tfhat special arrangements, if any, will be necessary to provide sufficient labour for the harvest, Tbe matter is of national importance, and all oc-! cupiers to whom forms have been sent should be urged to fill them up and to return them, while those who have more than one acre under any one crop, and who have not received a form shouid be asked to apply to the District Agent of the Department as indicated in the advertisement.
