According to Leo Obert, Chairman, Jewell Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation County Committee, payments for a farm will be reduced where the county committee determines that the cropland set aside for diverted acres under program is substantially less productive than the aver- age cropland normally used to produce the crop. In such a case, the farm operator will first be given an opportunity.and urged to de- signate other land of at least average productivity for diver- sion under the program. If this is not done, program pay- ments will be reduced in pro- portion to the lower yields which could reasonably be ex- pected from the acreage di- verted. + Any reduction indicated in the payment otherwise earned by the farmer would be sub- tracted, as applicable, from the farm diversion, the price support, and the certificate payments -- in that order. (Diversion payments are avail- able for some feed grain farms; price support payments are available for feed grains; and certificate payments are available in connection with wheat.) Growers are reminded that the signup for the wheat and feed grain programs will close March 17, 1967. Signing up is a necessary first step in qual- ifying for any price support or other program benefits. John G.

Mrs. Hag- bard BraN. tee, points out that only grow. ers who participate in the pro- gram will be eligible for pricg support on their 1967 crops o( corn and grain sorghums, .44 last year, the support is made available through loans, put- chases, and price support pay- ments. Except on small farms (farms with bases of 25 acres or less) and some farms with larger bases where no feed grain is to be planted, no di- version payment is avallabll under the 1967 feed grain pro- gram. The price support pay, meats (30 cents per bushel for corn and 53 cents per hund I. weight for grain sorghum) may be earned on the projected production from. an acreage up to 50 per cent of the farm's total feed grain base by plant- ing corn or grain sorghums. or by planting soybeans in lieu of these feed grains. The aim. tional average loan rates are $1.05 per bushel for corn $1.61 per hundredweight for grain sorghum. If the grower wishes, he may request -- at the time he up -- an advance payment of one-half of the total estimated price support and diversion (for small farms) paymentt to be earned. The Chairman urges farmers who are interested in taking part in this year's feed+ grain program to call at the ASCS county office as soon as po~. ible, since there are only 10 working days left before the signup deadline, and signing up is a necessary first step in program participation. Appli- cations may be filed any day Monday through Friday. Office hours are from 8:00 a.m. t~ 5:00 p.m. Signup deadline is March 17. Through March 2, 1086 farms in Jewell County had been signed up under the 1967 feed grain program, with intended diversion of about 2,600 acres, This includes the 20 per cent diversion necessary to qualify for participation, and the addi- tional acreage diverted for payment.
