6-A! B e>na (lo.) Upp*r DM MelnM Thursday, December 9, 1965 Will Adjust Feed Grain Payment Rate The feed grain program for 1966 will be essentially unchanged in form, but payment rates will lie adjusted to encourage broader participation by farmers, the U. S. Department of Agriculture has announced. Changes in the program are either those required by law or those which reflect legislative history established this year when the new program was enacted. Continuing objectives of the program are to strengthen income of producers^ particularly those who make full use of the program, and to keep production in balance with consumption, while maintaining adeo^iate reserves. Underlying the whole effort is the need to hold down Government costs. R. 1. Anderson, Chariman, Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation County Committee, points out that the signup for the 196G feed grain program will be held early next year. The program will follow the pattern of recent years. Farmers will lie asked to divert a minimum 20 percent of the feed grain base acreage to conserving uses. Those who participate will receive income-maintaining payments, and they will tie eligible for price-support loans. Changes in payment provisions Yields for determining payments will be projected at higher levels to reflect current trends rather than historic yields as has been the practice. No diversion payment will be made for minimum diversions, except for small-base-acreage farms (25 acres or less), but payments for additional diversion will lie higher than in 1965. Price -support payments will lie higher than in 19G5, but will be limited to 50 percent of a farmer's base acreage. The loan rate (for corn and grain sorghum) will be lowered, but total payments at maximum participation will l>e higher.
