Egbert, chairman, Agrk:uiL ural Stabilization and Conser- vation state committee, said this week. Tim program aims at surplus crops, and those which could quickly be- come surplus - cotton, peanuts, tobacco, and feed grains, Kansas has received an initial allocation of $1.021,000 for the 1967 Cropland Adjust- ment program, Egbert said, that the signup of farmers who wish to take part next year will start on December 1. The greenspan provisions of the program will continue to help state and local govern- ments acquire cropland for nonfarm uses such as preset'- vation of open spaces and na- tural beauty, wildlife habitat and recreation and the pre- vention of air and water pollution. Egbert pointed out that, na- tionally, about 30 to 35 million base acres can go back into production under the 1967 wheat and feed grain pro- grams along with more than 2 million acres from expiring conservation reserve con~ tracts. He cautioned, llowever, tha~ there is still need to pre- vent over-expansion of acre- age in some crops in order to avoid returning to costly sur- plus buildups. For 1967, CAP provides generally higher rates for put- ting cropland not presently needed for agricultural pro- duction unde~ long term agree- ments -5 to 10 years. These rates reflect the improvement in commodity prices. Adjustment payment rates in Kansas for land that would otherwise produce corn and grain sorghum will range from Mrs. Media Whitley writes from California where she has been visiting this fall, that she is having a lovely visit. She will go to Glendale this week- end to see a cousin and plans to be home in December• ::i,! ! iiii'i ' ! !:, ~i i 49 to 53 cents per bushel for corn and from 39 to 43 cents a bushel for grain sorghum. The payment will be determin- ed by the number of acres and lhe farm yield per acre. After placing all of the acre- age of one or more of the above crops or tame hay in the program, except acreage for home use of corn and grain :-:orghunt, farmers may include other row crop and small- grain acreage. Rates for this other cropland in Kansas - in- cluding that for wheat, rice, and barley - u ill range from $6.00 to $10.20 per acre. In addition to the adjustment payment related to the value of crops normally produced on the land, participants will also be eligible for conservation cost-sharing on land .put un- der the program. All of the land taken out of production will be put to conservation uses. Wildlife plantings and conservation measures which preserve open space and enhance natural beauty, will continue to be emphasized. Other practices au[horized for cost:sharing assistance will prevent erosion or air and waler pollution, and provide bc'tter' outdoor recreation. The program should be of particular benefit to farmers who want to r~tire- or take jobs in industry, or for other rea- sons wart to c~ange their pro- duction !mt l.ern. The program )ro~ides a means by which they can ,,hilt land into new uses and at the same time apply needed conservation measures for long-time benefit to the land• Details on how the program may apply to the individual farm will be available in ASCS, county ofiices later this month• Jobn G.
