Coffon Acreage Held Important Growers Risk Losing ' Future Cotton Rights If '45 Acreage Cut How much cotton will a farmer bo nble to plant in 1946 or 1941? That may depend upon how much acreage he plants iu 1915, says A. L.. Ward, educational director, National Cottonseed Products Association, Dallas, and this fact should be weighed carefully in planning acreage tills season. Cotton acreage is not restricted Ihis .season, he points out, bul hi* past control programs "Acreage history" has been used to determine a grower's right to benefit payments, loans and oilier benefits uiuler government programs. Because future programs may also be based upon acreage history, a grower may endanger his future opportunity to Brow cotton by failure to plrint enough acreage in 1045. "Is there any reason to expect that a growers future opportunity to raise cotton will not dcjiend upon his acreage history? Can farmers afford to risk losing legal rights as cotton producers in the future, when these rights may be far more valuable than today, because they failed to plant enough acreage this season?" Ward added Hint some farmers will not lie able, due to conditions beyond their control, to plant as much colton acreage this season as in the past; and this may .endanger acreage goals established by the War Food Administration unless growers increase acreage where they are able (o d° .so. " of the importance of cotton and cottonseed as a war crop, source of food, feed and fiber, and source of income lo producers, it is highly important that every effort be made to reach these acreage goals", he said.
