Low Yield Payments For Some County Farms With some Kossuth County farms hit by hail, wind, flood and drought, farmers having wheat and feed grain allot- mests may be eligible for disaster payments, according to George Detmering, chairman of the Kossuth County ASC Committee. In connection with the U.S. Department of Agriculture's disaster payment program, it is important that a producer report the disaster conditions as early as possible to the county ASCS office, Mr. Detmering said. A previous requirement for mid-summer sign-up and certification has been revised, enabling producers with wheat, corn, barley and grain sorghum allotments to certify not later than 15 days after completing harvest i n order to be eligible for payment for abnormally low yield. However, Mr. Detmering advised, the producers best course is to report to the county ASCS office as soon as he realizes his yield may be below normal. Before low yield payments ca n be made, the Kossuth Co. ASC committee is required to have a field inspection made and to obtain records which verify actual production. "When a producer visits the county ASCS office to report that natural disaster is affecting production on his allotment crops, we will discuss all the details with him, including inspection and the production evidence he will need", Mr. Detmering said. "It's one of the reasons an early visit is advisable."
