Bergland Announces 20 Percent Set-Aside Program For Wheat Secretary of Agriculture Bob Bergland announced a 20 per- cent set-aside program for the 1979 wheat crop, identical to this year's "highly successful" program. By complying with the an- nounced set-aside, wheat far- mers will he eligible for a wheat loan of $2.35 a bushel, and a target price of $3.40 per bushel, also the shme as the 1978 program. Secretary Bergland called the 1979 program a "stabilizing measure designed to benefit both producers and consumers." "If farmers use the 1979 program as well as they did this year, we believe that farm wheat prices will be main- tained," the secretary said. "This program is also anti- inflationay; these provisions will not add to food price inflation," he noted. USDA studies show that no set- aside in 1979 would result in U.S. wheat stocks being well above needs, considerably lower farm prices, higher government payments, and a decrease in export earnings from wheat: "Good participation in the 20 percent set:aside should result in wheat stocks on June 1, 1980 near 7.5 percent of the projected world wheat use or ap- proximately 1.135 - billion bushels," Bergland added. The Secretary reiterated the President's commitment to wheat reserves of 550 million bushels (15 million metric tons (MMT)inchding the 400 million bushel farmer-owned reserve and the special emergency reserve for food aid com- mitments of 150 million bushels (4 MMT). "This Administration will continue to take actions that will ensure a strong family farm system, our commitments to world food security, and our reputation as a dependable supplier of quality products in world markets." Bergland concluded, "The world situation that we're facing this year is not unlike last year." The successes of the 1978 wheat program - the set-aside, the loan and farmer-f owned reserve programs, and disaster and deficiency payments -- provides conclusive evidence that our basic policies and programs should be con- tinued. The average season farm price for the 1973 wheat crop is expected to he about $2.75 a bushel -- up from $2.31 for the 1977 crop.

The 20 percent set-aside means that for every 100 acres of wheat planted for harvest as grain, 20 acres must be set aside. The 1979 program will permit wheat farmers to graze their planted wheat for six months of the year, however a grazeout and haying program has not been included in the program. The national program acreage of 57.1 million acres is the number of acres of wheat needed to be planted in order to produce enough for exPected domestic and export needs and carryover. The Secretary announced a voluntary reduction of 15 per- cent for 1979 wheat. Program participants who reduce their 1979 planted acreage by at least 15 percent from their 1978 acreage will be eligible for target-price coverage on 100 percent of their 1979 planted wheat acreage. The program will give credit to farmers who reduced their acreage in 1978 so that their base for 1979 reduction will be the same as it was in 1978.
