Announces 1975 Operational Guidefnes The U. S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has announced Operational Procedures and Initial State Funding for the 1975 Agricultural Conservation Program (ACP). General details of ACP and the funding level were announced March 17. Authority to develop practices needed to solve conservation problems is being delegated to each of USDA's farmer- elected county Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation (ASC) Committees in consultation with the County Program Development Group. All approved practices in effect under the 1970 National Agricultural Conservation Program are eligible. Practices developed by the Kossuth County ASC Committee will be subject to approval by Iowa State ASC Committee in consultation with the Iowa State Program Development Group. Throughout the practice development and cost-sharing approval process, Iowa State ASC and Kossuth County Committee will emphasize the objective of assuring that cost- sharing will be for carrying out enduring soil and water conservation measures that the farmer would not perform without this assistance. Specialized assistance for the 1975 ACP will be provided by USDA agencies with the Kossuth County Soil Conservation Service furnishing planning and technical assistance on servicing of practices and long- term agreements and technical services concerning Forestry practices provided by the Forest Service. As announced earlier, $190 million will be made available nationally for program operations, and will share with farmers between 50 and 75 per cent of the cost of carrying out needed practices. The $190 million includes funds to fully finance the long-term agreements signed under the 1974 ' Rural Environment Conservation Program, currently projected at about $33,750,000. Individuals interested in further information concerning the Agricultural Conservation Program should contact their Kossuth County USDA Service Center. The Iowa State initial allocation for ACP in 1975 and long-term agreement obligations is as follows: ACP Allocation, $5,872,000; Remaining 1974 long-term agreement obligations, $2, 343, 815 * ai^d the total amount, $8,215,815. *The total amount available to cover the remaining obligations on contracts signed under , the 1974 program. The balance represents reserves required by law to be held for increases to be made in payments to farmers who earn less than $200 in cost-sharing assistance during the program year and for transfers to other USDA agencies for technical services they provide for the program. t/Sf roue WANT ADS A CUT ABOVE THE REST! 5 HP Jet 4 HP Chain Drive You can't 7 HP Rocket grow foster, but you con moke your gardening go foster with an Ariens Power Tiller!
