PAGE EIGHT Project. In Study Stage May Be Ready In Two Years __ WASHINGTON, April '25. (UP) — Federal Crop Insurance officials have worked onl a tentative nhn for extending crop insurance to citrus growers, probably witliln Hie next two years. The plan is based on a study au- IhorlMd by..congress. Tlint study ha.s not been completed, but stifli- clenl data has been gutlicred to indicate Dial ,1 pracfbii] prpgnmi can be developed, officials said. Cecil 'A. Johnson, assistant 1 : <C'I manager, said there is "every indication" dial the tentative plun "will continue toward development of a sound and workable foundation" for ."nil-risk Insurance fur citrus fruit." Uke Wheat Insurance 'Hie proposed citrus plan is .similar to tlic all-risk wheat insur-1 ance put into effect last year for wheat farmers. Approximately onc- .third of all wlient growers will be protected against .crop losses tins year by federal Insurance. Tlie• citrus 1 insurance plnn would Include not only tlie yield, as hi ''the case of wheat, but also damage lo tlie trees, The latter \vas< added because of the danger thai cold weather or a hurricane might destroy the trees. Under the tentative plum growers, would insure 15 per cent of their average production of oranges, grapefruit and lemons In (eVnis of boxes of fruit. Unlike wheat, where premium payments are In kind, citrus growers would pay cnsh premiums. It would be Impossible to store the citrus fruit for a year for the settlement of claims, as is done In wheat, officials said.

Hail ruul wind storms have caused damage In some sections and floods in others. Only In the northern great plains and the^Great Lukes regions have crops made normal progress. Continued dry weather and luck of sub-soil moisture over most of. the winter \vhcat tell was reported by the weather bureau. A winter wlicnt crop one-third below normal is now In prospect.

Government payments comprised $291,000.- COO of'thc total this year and $192.000,000 last year. r, Part of the March decline was attributed to a slackening of demand for farm products, which was reflected in lower prices despite « less than usual increase in market- ings. Farmers received n cash income of SIM.000,000 from all crops; SH35,COO.OOO from the sale of livestock and livestock products and $07,000,000 from government • benefit payments in March.
