It4» Price Supports, Loans Discussed PMA Adminittrativ* Officer it Speaker At Farmers' Meeting lUlph Monro«, Production Marketing Administration'! adininlstra- tiv« officer for Mississippi County. diKuswd the 1M8 price support program In connection with the construction loan program, which h»s recently been put In effect, Ust night «t i meeting of soybean producer* »n<j implement dealers. Mr. Monroe said today that the farmers interest in tn« farm storage construction loans apparently ».B Involved chiefly with having storage available so they can qualify for the PMA's commodity loans, and there Is no commercial storage available in Mississippi County at tht present time. Mr. Monroe said that the Lee Wilson Company at Wilson was at prwent completing plans to qualify &ome commercial storage, but that It probably would not accommodate more than crops produced on th« property owned or operated by the company. Storaie N«Hj Discussed At last night's meeting, conduct, ed in the Court House in Blytheville, Mr. Monroe explained that thi loans on commodities were available only when there was storage available. According to Mr. Monroe the storage space would be considered adequate If it would hold a year's hold-over pills a normal year's yield. He explained that one and one-quarter cubic foot was storage «p«ee for one bushel of beans and two and one half cubic feet ol storage would store one bushel of corn. Mr. Monroe said that most of the producers indicated that they wuld convert farm buildings Into storage bins, and that few had planned to use the loan set up to work direct or indirectly through the Commodity Credit corporation to build new farm storage. In explaining the question of eligibility for participating in the Kovernment loan, purchasing agreement, or loan on farm storage construction, he said that presons having ownership or part ownership in the production of the crop were eligible for the loans. He added that storage loans would not be available o n purchased commodities. Loans on structures that are movabl*, usually with aand or travel as a base, are secured by chattel mortgages, but those for Immovable structures, require first mortgage^ when available. Loans on both movable and im- moveablt facilities are available through June 30. 1950. A quarter cent'"per bushel of capacity is 'required ax • service fee at the time the application is made.
