Provisions Made To increase conservation, the change provides that farmers shall devote not less than 26 per cent of their cropland to erosion-resisting and soil -conserving crops " and land uses. A provision is made for a deduction of $5 from conservation payments for each acre by which this goal is not reached with the deduction applying only to farms having cotton, rice, wheat or tobacco allotments. This minimum soil -building acreage requirement does not apply to farms in Baxter, Benton.
