Anderson, chairman of the coimty ASC committee. 7Te stated that the soil and water conservation practices offered in the l!)fil program are substantial}}- the same as those offered in 1960. lie emphasized, however, that in line with higher construction costs the allowable cost-share rates tor several practices will be a little higher in 1961. As in previous years, the cost- sharing program for 1961 will be administered on the local level by the farmer-elected county and community ASC comitecmen. All farmers in the county who wish to participate in the 1961 ACP will be given an opportunity to apply for practices anytime after January 2, 1961, at the county ASC office in Algona, Iowa. Kossuth county received an allocation of S79.30D.OO for the 1961 program.
