Eligibility for crop program ^ is outlined '^•*y». Eligibility requirements for participation in the 1966 Cropland Adjustment Program have been outlined by Richard I. Anderson, chairman, Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation Committee. Observing that the program was designed to help farmers divert cropland from surplus jroduction, to conservation uses inder long-term agreements— five .to ten years—the Chairman said that participants would re ceive adjustment payments cal culated to replace income from the crops which would other wise be produced on the land Most farms are eligible to take part in the CAP. A farm fulfills the qualifying'' require ment if the owner or owner? sign an agreement and diver at least one entire acreage a] lotment such as a wheat allot ment or the entire feed grain base. Additional cropland may then also be diverted. In fact, once the farm qualifies all land currently used for crops on the farm may be diverted for payment. The program is open to farms that have been operated during the year just prior to the first year of the CAP agreement and have been under the same ownership three years before the agreement. However, there are exceptions to the three-year ownership provision. A new owner is eligible if he acquired the farm through will or succession following the death oi the previous owner.! Jnder some circumstances a arm is eligible if it was bought before January 1, 1965. A hon- owner may enroll a farm if he had control of it, for the three prior years and will be responsible for it during the term of he agreement. A farm is considered to'have jeen operated during the past fear if some or all of its cropland was diverted under the Conservation Reserve or th.9 Cropland Conversion Program as well as if crops were planted or harvested.
