Farmers are already becoming involved with metric units and by 1974 conversion of the farming industry will be well advanced. Wool sales converted to metric measurements in August, 1971, and sales by the various grain marketing boards will be largely in metric terms in the 1972 harvest. Weather information to the public has been given in metric terms since September 1.
