FRIDAY, OCTOBER 29, 1954 BLYTHEVILLR (ARK.)' COURIER HKWI PAffli REVIEW «• FORECAST ^ fl Small Wheat Producer Gets Break by Ruling ; The small wheat producer has* been given a "break" in new cross-compliance provisions announced recently by the United States Department of Agriculture, according .to Coy McNabb, extension economist at the University of Missouri. A larmer who harvests no more than 15 acres of wheat next year will not lose his eligibility for price support on other crops, provided he stays within his allotments on all the other crops for which acreage allotments have been determined for his farm. The 15-acre-or-less cutoff also applies to wheat marketing quotas and marketing penalties. A farmer may harvest and sell up to 15 acres of wheat without paying a marketing quota penalty. He will not be eligible for price support on wheat, however, unless he harvests no more than his actual allotments. It should be noted, says McNabb, that the rules apply to wheat harvested, rather than to wheat planted. New legislation provides that farmers who plant In excess of any crop acreage allotments will be given an opportunity to adjust •their acreage before harvest. Any 'wheat acreage used before maturity for hay, silage, pasture or a green-manure or cover crop will not be considered as wheat in determining compliance for wheat marketing quotas or price support. To be eligible for price support 'on corn, tobacco, cotton, peanuts "or other crops, a farmer may harvest no more than 15 acres of wheat or his actual allotment — whichever is the greater, and stay within his 1952-53 average acreage of commercial vegetables, potatoes antj dry beans. 'To be eligible for Agricultural Conservation Program assistance in 1955, he is required to stay within his actual allotments on all the basic crops, Including wheat.

Although additional soil moisture would benefit fall seeded crops in a number of counties, the situation is generally satisfactory over most of the State. Fall seeding of small grains continues with a large proportion of the acreage already up to a good. stand and a limited acreage now furnishing some grazing. Ca tile continue to improve us better grazing is no\v available. Light frosts were reported during the week.

SOYBEAN harvest is in full swing. Yields are generally low and there are reports of uneven maturing which results in some shattering while other beans are too green to combine. Some seeding of WINTER GRAINS continues although the bulk of the acreage has now been planted. Stands are generally good and some early acreage is now being grazed. Additional moisture would benefit fall seeded .grains in some areas but as a whole, good progress is reported. Only light frosts are reported to date and late HAY .crops and SORGHUMS are making good growth. Much of the late sorghum Is being utilized for silage. Late hay. while limited in volume, will be of considerable help. Most CORN has already been harvested. PASTURES are furnishing good grazing and LIVESTOCK are making uams.

The FARM LABOR supply is generally adequate although the demand for COTTON" PICKERS continues strong. Caught by the Ears SAN DIEGO.

PhoM Ut -TO ALL VOTERS- We appeal to all Farm Bureau members, as well as all public spirited citizens to vote in every election. It is your duty as well as your privilege. The next important election is the General Election on November 2. We believe there are two very important matters on the ballot which should be given special attention and thought by every voter. We definitely feel that the "Three Mill County Road Tax" should be approved. Much thought and study has been given to the proposed constitutional amendment for 100 per cent assessment. We think there is sufficient reason to oppose this amendment. —BALLOT SAMPLE- ROAD TAX For Tax . . . : .. ....... .. . .. ...... .......
