,~: M AUClt T1?, r 198?.' (AUK,)' COUR1I2II NEWS The 1937 .Soil Conservation Program A. Points That Rtm»iil Iho As In (he J93S Trgirani' ', I. The diversion payment, will be based on 5o per ppund for the adjusted yield. ' 2. A farm can divert any amount of the cotion base acres up to 35 per cent of the .base. 3. The same kind of crops that were used as conserving In 1936 may bo used In 1937. 4. There cap be no- radical changes made in the leasing or cropping agreement which would tend to prohibit tenants from get* ting their share of tlio diversion payment. The number of'tenants cannot be radically reduced from the number who were on the farm the previous year. 5. The cotton base acres will remain (ho same as in -1936, subject to minor adjustments by tho county committee, However, in no case can the base acres be more than 10 per cent of the crop land. G. If two or more producers grow cotton on a farm, the diversion payment will be figured on tho number of acres of cotton each, one grew, regardless of whether or not he grew any Lonserw ing crops (There Is a rnrc c\ cepflon; \a !hls' riile.) 7. The diversion of payment beT tween landlord 'and tenant remains the same .is in 183^ B Points That (Are Different, from (he 193G Prograrn 1 Gojbcans mas b* harvested for 9)1'•mill purposes as' well for seed snd that acreage can then be used (or the acres. 0. Tho cotton yield *il| be based more upon the production at tlio present time (nan on (he base history. This places n premium on better farming practices, such as growing legumes, rota- lion, etc. Similar farms worked under Iho same conditions and practices an), supposed to have tlie same yield. 3. A sol) conserving base will be established for each farm, based to a degree upon the acreage normally crown during the ptrlod from 1928 through 1036. A. The soil building allowance will be at least 51.CO per acre fpr each acre of cotion diverted, plus $1.00 for each acre in. Iho soil conserving base. Each farm will have at least n $10.000 allowance. 5. The soil building payment for seeding alfalfa is $2.50 per acre, for establishing a permanent pasture $3.00 per acre, and for 'turning under soybeans $2.00 j-er acre seeding ^etch $150 p-<r pcre and turning undei \ctch $100 pei acre All of these must bo dona in 1037 and on crop land. 6 There will be no soil building reym,en}. for leaving so\bean V)nes 'and stalks on the ground unless tl\ej are 1 turned under. •n<0n,e acre of coin and soy- boiis, inlei'plantcd will count ns 01:3 acre of general soil depleting crops and will a! SO count as one-half acre of conserving crops. One acre of oats followed by soybeans, Icspedeza, etc., will count ns one acre of general -soil depleting end also an cue acre of soil conserving crop. 8. A penalty will be applied for over-planting (he general soil depleting base or for overpliuillns the amount needed foi* home use, whichever is (lie larger. Very little If any penalty win bo applied if 35 p6r cent of llic collon base (the mnximum (o be diverted) is in some kind ol conserving crops such as pasture, alfalfa, and soybeans s^own' alone., ^s a general rule corn, even lliough Interplanted with soybeans on the diverted acres, will draw a penal- ly ol about ?10.00 per acre. 0. A penally of $3.CO per acre will be applied for | 10 (, | m - ulg the required acreage or conserving CI-OIM. The acreage required will be Ihe number of acres diverted plus (he number of acres set up as the normal uonsi'rvin? base. .10. As long as you own n cotton crop or share in one tliere is no legal ivay that you can sell, trade or assign your diversion check. It cannot be pledged for anything, not even for supplies Eo make a' crop. Caruthersvillc Society — Personal I'asl Matrons Have Dinner.
