Weed, t* knock down 4 " By DON KENDALL AP Fatttt Writer WASHINGTON (AP) Sheep producers can expect at least some government payments for wool sold in 1974 because of the reduced market price this year, says the Agriculture Department.

The 1974 wool incentive or iatjjei price is 72 cents per pound, unchanged from last .war.

It was the first lime in the 20 years of the program none had been made. Wool prices in 1971 were so '*• fc depressed—averaging Si cents per pound —that producers collected a record $103 million in payments for wool sold that year. The 1972 market im* proved, but payitienU still to* ialed $65 million, The payments for 1974 wool will be made ne*t spring. Those normally are sent after USDA has computed the preceding year's market averages and rates for eligible growers. Officials said Thursday that wool production in 1975 prob- ably will drop again, The de- i dine has been going ott fof many years as because 61 cut» backs in sheep and lamb pro* due lion.
