Martin, Associated Press farm reporter, has just returned from * 4,500-mile cross-country swing to sound out grass roots sentiment on the politically potent /arm issue. Here, in the first of five articles, ."Martin writes of problems confronting farmers in xddltlon to falling prices. By OVID A. MARTIN Associated Tress Farm Reporter WASHINGTON (AP) — The pinch lower prices is putting on farmers' pocketbooks is the major -— but not the sole — factor back of current rural unrest. Tne bulk of the testimony farmer-witnesses save before a series of farm-belt hearings held by the Senate Atiriculture Committee in the last three weeks emphasized reductions in farm incomes. But sprinkled throughout were complains about other things. Sample criticism of (he farm income drop was that of an Iowa corn-hos: fanner., He said it now takes 137 hops 10 buy a tractor that could be bousht in 1948 with 38.

Controls, Too As for other types of complaint some farmers found fault with the way crop control measures work:. Some disliked tariff and import; policies, especially with regard toj farm products. j Others criticized milk control: programs. Many demanded a halt! to reclamation of new farm land.! Some voiced concern that farmers' in other areas were trying to take; over their markets. j A standout complaint was that i advanced , by wheat growers in I North Dakota.

The result lias been surpluses in -these quality needs into account, growers who produce the high quality wheat must reduce their acreages just as much as do farmers who produce poorer qualities, Want Larger Allotments The Dakota and Montana farmers want the law changed to allow them larger planting allotmnets and to reduce still further allotments of producers of other grades. In the Pacific Northwest, farmers complain that both the government's price support and crop control laws are shutting them off from a big market they once had— that of providing wheat for livestock and poultry feed on the Pacific Coast. Little corn, the major feed grain, is grown in the West. Price supports hold wheat prices above prices of corn imported from the Midweest and crop control measures do not permit them to produce enough to supply their own feed grain market, the Pacific Northwest farmers say. They want a two-price plan under which wheat they sold for human consumption would be supported at 100 per cent of parity— the price said by law to be fair in relation to farm costs. The remainder of their production—which would be unlimited—would be sold for feed use in competition with corn. Rice growers in California voiced, a complaint similar to that of the Northern Great Plains wheat farmers. There is an overall surplus j of rice, but not of the type the i California growers said they pro-. duce. Hence, they object to taking | the same percentage reduction in i production as that assigned growers in Louisiana kansas, Targets Past actions of the government in allowing imports of oats and barley from Canada at when this country has other crops.
