PAGE EIGHT AAA To Pi-oyide Winler . Cover Crop Seed To Cooperators Plans. liave been completed by the. Agricultural Adjustment Administration for the purchase nnd distribution of winter legume seeds In" designated Southern and Southeastern areas, including all counties In Arkansas, In lieu ol payments under the 1939 Agricultural Conservation Program, ac. cording to D. S, Lanlrip, county agricultural agent of North Mlsslss- . Ippi County, Under the plan, vvliicli Is op- llonal with faiDiers, hairy vetch seed produced In Oregon mid oilier Northwestern State.?, will be furnished to runners In Arkansas for use in planting winter caver crops as &• practice under the 1933 AAA program. Tlie quantity of seeds which any Individual farmer may obtain will be limited to SO per cent of the soil-building payment on lits faun, , In most cases this will amount to less than ten per cent ot the quantity of seeds required to plant the cultivated land on the faun lo winter cover crops. One of the objections of the AAA program is to encourage farmers to conserve the soil on their farms by planting cultivated land to vetch and peas and other winter legumes, mid this seed project is designed to bring about a substantial Increase In the acreage of these crops In the South ns well as providing Northwestern fanners with an increased outlet for vetch seed. "On 'the basis of lost year's experiment, It is evident (hat, the furnishing of seed in lieu of conservation payments encourages farmers In the experimental areas to plant not only lire amount of seed they were able Ho earn in the program, but also as a group, to buy more than. they would have purchased under normal conditions," Mr. Lantrip said. "This was not only beneficial from the standpoint of soil conservation, but meant added business to seed dealers In those areas in which Use experiment was carried out." While it is yet too early lo form an accurate estimate of the amount! of vetch which will be furnished ns grants of aid, indications arc tliat n normal supply of these seeds will lemain available for distribution through the customary trade channels, it is sold. ;•' While final figures arc not available, it is estimated that the total 1939 supply of hairy vetch is approximately 0,000,000 pounds of domestically produced seed and V 000,000 pounds of foreign produced seed, making a loin! of 15,000,000 pounds which compares with n total of 12,000,000 pounds in 1938. Initial purchases from seed companies will be limited legume seed from certain designated areas, such purchases to be supplemented'from time lo time as requests' from individual farmers are compiled. Invitations to bid on initial requirements will be infilled to prospective bidders within the next Icy; days. Such Invitations will also ini elude provisions for subsequent purchases to be made pursuant to telegraphic invitations to bid. Bids will be requested on seed delivered prepaid to specified destination points. Awards will be made to lowest responsible bidders on the basis of prices bid oft the seeds delivered to designated points. Cooperation witli local seed distributors will be smiaht in arranging local distribution'. * The cost of the seed lo cooperating farmers has not yet been determined. condition of -buildings and em- ployes ' over which the stale department of health lin.s Jurisdiction.

Luxora Society — Personal COURIER NEWS To Boost Payments To Small Farmers More than ?2,167,000 is expected to' be used in Arkansas by the Agricultural Adjustment Administration this year in Increasing payments to smalt farmers who would not earn more than S200, accord- Ing to the regular schedule ol grants by taking part in the 1939 farm program, according to D. S. Lantrip, county agricultural agent. The AAA program provides conservation payments as a reward for soil conservation work accomplished through confining soil depleting crops to specified acreage allotments and carrying out approved soil-building practices. •'When total payments are less than $200 the checks are Increased on a graduated scale. As an example a payment of $25 is increased 59; a payment of $50 is increased $13, nnd a payment of $150 is boosted "Tills is one reason why the AAA program has been called a 'small farmer's program," Mr. Lantrip said. "In adopting the provision for increase of small pay. merits, Congress Intended to make the program .as profitable as could be for the many families trying lo make a go of it on small farms.".
