6-Algona (la.) Upper Des Moinei Tuesday, Aug. 15, 1967 10 In County Get More Than $ 10,000, Farm Plan A number of farmersand farming interests in this area were listed recently in an official government publication as recipients of $10,000 or more from various federal farm programs last year. It was also announced that no less than 465 lowans received in excess of that amount in 1966. Heading the list for Kossuth is Virgil Blomster, Swea City, $21,814, with Patterson Land and Livestock, Burt, next with $16,462 and Mullins HybredCorn Co., Corwith, third at $14,814. Others topping $10,000 were Berkness Bros., Armstrong, $13, 128; Berl Priebe, Algona, $12,961; Frank Rotterman, Elmore, $12,318; John Dreesman, Algona, $12,150; Richard CC Green, Swea City, $11,535; Leo H. Guerdet, Armstrong, $11,225; and Herbert Jensen, Buffalo Center, $11,030. Largest recipient in Iowa was the Amana Society, $155,000, while several other large interests and individual operators received huge amounts as a result of participation in federal programs. Wheat Growers 5 Million Bu. Notified Of Barley Rules Wheat producers desiring to substitute that grain for production on barley base acreage can do so for the 1968 crop, it was announced recently by the U. S. Department of Agriculture. Barley will not be in the feed grain diversion program next season. Consequently no diversion from the barley base acreage will be required of wheat producers requesting the establishment of a barley base for the purpose of growing wheat on such acreage. All barley producers will be eligible for barley price support regardless of acreage planted, however. The level of loan price-support will be announced later. Major operating provisions of the 1968 wheat program were announced July 7. The barley provisions are being made known at this time so winter wheat producers can have ample time to make cropping plans. About half of the U. S. barley acreage is fall-seeded. Use of the substitution provisions between barley and wheat cropland will result in increased flexibility for grain growers. Producers requesting establishment of a barley base (or an oats/rye base as previously announced for the wheat program) will need to participate in the 1968 feed grain program if there is a corn or a sorghum base established for the farm. In 1968, corn and sorghum cannot be produced on barley or oats/ rye bases, but barley and oats/ rye can be grown on wheat allotment acreage and on corn-grain sorghum base acreage. More Info On Wheat Program While there will be no wheat diversion in 1968 the wheat program is still a compact between government and farmers with each participating farmer doing certain things to qualify for wheat marketing certificates and price- support loans, R. L Anderson, chairman, Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation county committee, pointed out today. Domestic marketing certificates for the 1968 wheat crop will be valued at the difference between full wheat parity, and the national average $1.25 price- support loan value. (The value of 1967-crop certificates is $1.36 per bushel.) The 1968 certificates will be issued on the projected production of 40 percent of the farm allotment; the loans will be available on all the wheat produced on a participating farm. Of Corn Under Price Support Corn from the 1966 crop placed under price-support loan by farmers in Kossuth county totaled 5,102,323 bushels through June 30, according to the ASCS office. This compares with the 3,753,000 bushels from the 1965 crop put under loan as of the same date a year ago. Producers of corn had until June 30 to make applications for price-support loans for which the maturity date was July 31, 1967. In addition, farmers who have 1966 corn or soybeans on their farms which are not under Commodity Credit Corp. loan may obtain a loan for reseal purposes and also storage payments beginning Aug. 1 by applying at ASCS county offices by Sept. 30 and requesting to reseal the commodity for the 1967-68 storage year. Corn loans are available to farmers who participated in the 1966 Feed Grain program and soybean loans are available to all farmers. Loans had been repaid on 3,377,626 bushels of the 1966- crop corn put under loan, leaving 3,724,695 bushels still under loan. Nationally, 1966-crop corn placed under price-support loan through June totaled 242 million bushels - less than 6 percent of the total crop of 4,103 million bushels. This compares with 213 million bushels from the 1965 crop put under loan as of the same date a year ago. Of the 1966-crop total, loans had been repaid on 39.8 million bushels, leaving about 202.6 million bushels still under loan. 8.6 Million Bu. Crops To The Far East Purchase authorizations for more than 8.6 million bushels of wheat and corn have recently been issued by the U. S. Department of Agriculture to India, Pakistan and Korea, according to reports received by the ASCS county office. All are authorized under the Food for Freedom Law under local currency sections of the agreements with the three countries. All grain for these exports will be obtained from free stocks by private U. S. traders. Another recent purchase authorization is for 50,000 metric tons of cottonseed oil and/or soybean oil to India. Delivery periods range from July 17 through Dec. 31.
