Oa.) Upfttf ttet MdjftM Kossuth Leads State In Diverted Farm Acreage Reunion Held By Foerlsch Family, Wesley Kossttth county has mote acre's of land placed in the 1961 feed grain farm program than any other county in Iowa. There are 2,601 farms par ticipating, a 79 percent'total, with 68,198 acres being taken out ot feed grain production. Nationwide, 'it is estimated thai about three million acres of nor mal feed grain land will be 'in the program and out of feed grain production. .Nearly 60 percent of all Iowa farms are in tht program for 1961. Exceeds Expectations County'A.S.C. Chairman Richard I. .Anderson said that the state and national sign-up was considerably'greater than expected from the standpoint of acres taken out of production-in 1961, and added, that it should be. "a big step toward solving 'the feed grain surplus problem. Participants agree to reduce their .1961 .acreage of corn or grain , sorghum,;.' by at least 20 percent of their 1959-'60 average on these two crops and to maintain as much land in normal conserving acres as they averaged'in 1959 and 1960. In return, participants'receive a payment for. their diverted acres approximately equal to the next return frqm normal crop of corn or grain sorghum on the diverted land. Participants arc also .eligible for price support on their 1961 crops of corn, barley, oats and rye. Non-participants .are not eligible for these support prices on grain. Diverted land may neither be grazed nor harvested in 1961. Clipping is not required unless necessary, to control weeds. Expect Iowa Bushel Cut , On the basis of the average corn yield in Iowa, if every acre of the diverted" land would average 60'bushels to the acre, the Iowa corn yield in 1961 should be more than 175 million bushels less because of the program. • However, ideal' growing condi- tions'thus far seem to .indicate that on the acres in pr.oducti.on, an outstanding, yield can be expected as of now. A rough estimate computed for ' the farmers in Kossuth participating in the program indicates payments' to the participants In the county ' of ' $1,070,064. This does not, include... cost-sharing payments under the regular ACP program.
