Feed Grain Wheat Program Signup Begins Jefferson County farmers can sign up for the 1978 feed grain and wheat set'-aside program which began March I, according to Mike Sienkiewicz, an official of the Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation Service, ASCS. Set-aside requirements are I0 percent for feed grains and 20 percent for wheat. "Participation in the program is voluntary", Sienkiewicz said. All farmers planting feed grain and-or wheat are eligible to participate in the voluntary program. Farmers who sign up will he eligible for price support loans, target price and disaster payments for barley, corn, grain sorghum or wheat on the par- ticipating farm, and eligible for loans on any other normal crop acreage, NCA, gown on the farm. The ASC official said both the set-aside and the grain reserve program are tools that farmers can use to help raise grain prices. "By participating in the set-aside program, they help cut the oversupplies that are currently holding down prices. By putting their grain in the reserve program, they will remove excess supplies from the market until farm prices rise".

'participate 10se target prices, loan eligibility, and disaster protection for these crops, as well as for rice and upland cotton. "They also lose loans on all other crops in the normal crop acreage of the farm", he stated. Mike also noted that a change in the offsetting compliance rules for the 1978 wheat and feed grain set-aside program allows multiple farm owners and operators to enter some farms in the program and grow the set- aside crops on other non- participating farms. However, the reduced production of participating farms cannot be offset by increasing the production of normal crop acreage NCA, on non- participating farms. Previously, the offsetting compliance rule required that all forms on which the producer was owner or operator be in compliance with set-aside and NCA regulations. NCA includes barley, corn, grain sorghum, wheat, oats, rye, and soybeans. Mike explained that owners and operators will be eligible for program benefits on par- ticipating farms with a set-aside crop if the NCA is not exceeded on non-participating farms they own or operate that produce a set-aside crop. Farmers in a multiple operation not planting set-aside crops will not be required to plant within their NCA, and producers will be eligible for program benefits for all crops grown on these farms. Producers who have an interest in more than one farm should contact the local ASCS office for more information regarding offsetting compliance requirements. Farmers who participate in the program agree to take out of production one acre for every ten planted in 1978 to corn, grain sorghuml and barley for grain; two acres for every ten planted to wheat for grain, and reduce theacreage of NCA crops by this set-aside amount. Sign-up will be conducted through May I. This will be the first year since 1973 that a set- aside program has been in el- feet. In 1973, 1,852,274 farms participated in the national feed grain program and 1,033,019 participated in the wheat program. Banking regulators encour- age customer complaints.
