*j-2~AI§6na (la.) Upper Dei Moipei Thursday, March 9, 1961 Cautious Optimism Felt In Area On Farm Prices If the new agricultural pro gram submitted to Congress, an --now under study in both th House and Senate should becom • law, it should mean increased in Come for area farmers for fee grains grown during the 196 crop year. There is a cautiou "Optimism evident in this area. . There are' several hurdles re _maining in final adoption of "new program, but''indications ar -that it will be effective in 196 ^'With whatever alterations migh 'yet lake place. Under the proposed program "(and subject to later revision) corn would-be supported at $1.2( per bushel on a national scale, or Somewhere around $1.10 to $1.12 per bushel in this area due to ^Kossuth county's distance from ^Chicago. H Corn suport ,was 97 cents a •bushel on the 1901 crop if dry ^enough for government seal. On the open market, corn has been ..selling for from 70 to 75 cents •generally. ' Connected will) the proposed » pjKjgram, however, is a 20 per'- cent reduction in planted acre'". aq[e requirements from }he .. acreages planted in 1959 and ' 1960 ; A survey of feed grain planUjigs is now underway in ihis counly ^nd all other grain producing areas as well. Corn itself, might possibl prove a bjt less attractive unde the new program with the 2 'percent acreage reduction invol ,«ved. Soybeans, however, hav been mentioned as being support ed a't $2.3Q per bushel and this might result in some acreage switph. The present support rate Jor soybeans has been $1.80. "*, The feed grain acreage survey has been ordered by the Depart- "ment .of Agriculture in expectation of som.e program revision fo\ J961 along the lines mentioned. -The final, form, however, still "rests with Congress. The House earlier approved a feed grain ^program about as .outlined, but the Senate later recommended ^sufficient changes from the ori- fginal plan so that, it is likely to go through some ups and down before adoption.
