DURING the past ten years it has been realised that all the countries in the world have a, common bond in the international trade in wheat. Various adjustments in relationships have perforce been necessary, but the six years which have elapsed since the War have given wheat-growing countries time to stabilise their positions and in some degree to accommodate themselves, on one hand, to the cessation of export from Russia, and, on the other hand, to the discontinuance of the artificially enhanced production prevalent during the War years. For this reason the agricultural statistics for 1923 1 published by the International Institute of Agriculture at Rome, with their comparisons with pre-War years, are of special interest, since they do at this stage indicate the trend which agriculture in general and wheat production in particular is taking throiighovit the world.
